With the house coming along and the weather cooling off just a little,
(you will laugh if I tell you what my reference for cool is-94 degrees)
I developed an overwhelming need to decorate our cute little third story apartment for Fall.
So when the Fall decorating bug hit me, I realized I had nothing to decorate with.
Really, how could that be-even though I thought I had brought everything to the apartment that I would need for our stay, I didn’t.
Well, it seems if I was going to decorate, then I was going to need to spend some money and I am feeling very thrifty these days. I feel as though any “extra,” change needs to be
saved to go towards some pretties for the new house.
So, my Fall decorating shopping spree had a pretty tight budget.
My Fall decorating shopping spree took me all over the city.
We just recently got a Big Lots, and I wanted to check it out. I love that place.
It was my first time shopping there, and I found some super cute Fall items, plus a couple of greeting cards-I think this may be a secret store to find some different seasonal items.
It was so well organized and everything was in it’s place, I was impressed with the cleanliness and friendly staff.
Next up was my favorite store Hobby Lobby, we all love that store, don’t we? But you know I felt that their selection of Fall items, was not quite as good as last year, I am wondering if it is because they have their Christmas out too, and have dedicated more space to that, just wondering if you feel that way too.
My next stop was Jo- Ann Fabric, they seem to have such a miscellaneous selection of
fabric, crafts and seasonal that I always feel as though I have walked into an old Five & Dime store. I typically only shop there if I am in a browsing sort of mood, they usually have a neat little 75% off aisle too-always fun to see what they have.
I love finding deals on decorating items-it is a fun feeling!
My final stop was T.J. Maxx, they had a few things out, but I couldn’t seem to find anything that would fit in with my Orange and White Vignette, so I left feeling a little disappointed.
I suppose, it is always a bit of a hit and miss sort of shopping trip there anyways.
Have you started decorating for Fall?
Have a lovely weekend!
