How to Decorate Your Coffee Table on a Budget: $50 or Less Challenge by Miranda Schultz of The Plus Life Blog

How to Style A Coffee Table On A Budget: $50 Challenge

Hi, I’m Miranda and while you likely know me for my love of plus size fashion… I’m also obsessed with home decor.  Like, give me all the HGTV, Better Homes & Gardens, Southern Living, Martha Stewart, Pinterest etc. etc. etc. obsessed.  I can’t quit.

I’ve promised more home content on the blog for a while, and I’ve had SO much fun creating this post.  I also love a good excuse to actually work on my house.  We’ve lived here for a year and we haven’t completely made it our own yet.  Your home decor requests are motivating me to get to it!

Today’s post is all about a personal challenge I gave myself… to decorate my very boring, very plain coffee table beautifully but also on a budget.

I decided to allow myself to spend $50 on the project, and *SPOILER ALERT* I spent even less than that to achieve this look.  I’m really happy with the way it turned out and hope it inspires you to tackle an area of your home with a frugal update!

Quick, Easy and Inexpensive Holiday Cards

There are a few things that I need my holiday cards to be…

Easy.  Quick turnaround. Inexpensive. Festive. Personal.

In general, I don’t like wasting money on paper products like birthday cards, gift wrap, etc. because for the most part they get thrown away. I would rather save the $5 I’d spend on fancy gift wrap and get a better gift with cute but inexpensive card and paper.

Photo holiday cards are a little different because many people (including me) do save them. I still don’t need them to be the fanciest pieces of paper ever, so they’re not something I like investing a lot of money into.
