Obviously, if I'm at home,if not called to work, of course I need to work home like cleaning the house,arranging, changing mats, rugs, etc. When I badly needed a new set of rug at home, well it's not my best idea to buy a new one.It's not that expensive but it will basically add more expense.
What I did, I went to my favorite Thrift Store, and look for a slightly used bathroom rug. I found one new set, and I placed it in our Suite room and i bought it really cheap. But the other one is not matched.The color is off- white the one that you will put under the bowl. You will see it in the picture.Then, I just used my flower rug on the side -which is obviously not matched but the color is quite close to each other.The center of the flower is colored off -white though and the flower is pale pink.I just arranged the bathroom floor really well and put some decoration to accentuate the place and clean it up,dis-infect, and that's it. I have a clean, fresh bathroom.Mix-matched within your budget is in, at this time of crisis. It's on how you play around whatever you have at home.
Yes, even if it's matched everything yet it's a messy area, still it doesn't look good, rather than it's mixed-matched but its all arranged, and well decorated with simple accents to add beauty in your bathroom, it will make a difference interms of the " looks " in your bathroom.
This is just one tip for one simple budget,yet worth it to try and explore!
It's a little change in my daily lifestyle,but it helps cut our expenses.If I buy a box of bottled water weekly, and one box is worth $4.00 including tax, multiplied by 4 (4weeks) = $ 16.00 each month, multipled by 12 months = $ 192.00 which means this is the amount I can save for a year without buying bottled water at all.
You can try it.It has pure Vitamin C.
Yesterday, when we arrived home from the grocery, I had a hard time looking for something where I could put my orange fruit.I remember my big tall glass is empty.So,I went to my front yard and harvest my green unripe oranges and put it at the bottom of the glass. Then I placed the ripe oranges on top of the green unripe oranges which i will be using for my tap water in the glass pitcher later with ice.
It's simple, but it accentuate the table.It gives freshness around the dining area.Additional tip, for beautifying your table.You dont need to buy new things to do it. Those crystal candle holder and the candles were bought at the Thrift Stores. It's really cheap, doesn't hurt your pocket, that if you really want to do something at your home, and your budget is too tight.If you have no budget at all to buy, try to play around whatever is in your house, I know you can find one.
The wide big glass at the bottom, I placed it at my kitchen close to the wall, and it adds freshness too in my kitchen.
This is just some simple alternative.
