Guest Post: 5 Ways to Decorate Your House for Less

In addition to spring cleaning here at 2 Kids and a Coupon, we’ve also been having some painting and remodeling done as well. It’s inspired me to start looking for some updated decorations, including some new pictures for the walls, throw pillows and more. If you’re also looking at doing some spring decorating, here’s 5 ways to decorate your house for less courtesy of the folks at


1. Pillows.

 Investing in some beautiful decorative pillows can make any inexpensive sofa or bedspread look high-end. Buy a plain couch or bedspread and buy decorative pillows to top it with. They will set the tone for decorating, and they will give the room a comfortable feeling.


2. Rugs.

New carpeting or tile can cost a lot of money. If you need to spruce up the decorating on the floors, opt for some nice rugs. They are great for hiding less-than-great flooring and can really make a room shine.


3. Thrifting.

Finding inexpensive home furnishing, especially furniture, can be as easy as visiting your local thrift stores. They usually have a variety of items to offer, and the prices are a fraction of what the items would cost new.


4. Group buys. There is power in numbers. When you get in on a group buy, you can save a great deal of money on housewares. This collective buying power is becoming increasingly popular as the Internet allows groups of people to get in on the sale from anywhere in the country. Many daily deal sites such as offer you the ability to get these group buy prices.


5. Flash sales.

Not sure what a flash sale is? Think of it being here one minute and then gone then next. A flash sale offers deeply discounted prices on high-end merchandise. The catch is that you need to be ready to grab it, because the deals are so good that they will not last. In fact, they will be gone in a “flash.”
