Try swapping rugs or moving a sofa from one wall to another. You might be surprised at how different your home will look with simple changes using things you already have.

Sell and then Buy an Item on a Buy-Sell Site

A great way to bring a new item into your home without really spending a dime, is to sell something you have on a buy-sell site, and then use that money to buy something new (to you)! If you have a piece of furniture that you’ve outgrown or don’t love any more, sell it on a site like Kijiji or Facebook and then look for another used item that works better for your home. You can also often find people giving away furniture and decor on those sites for free!

These are some of my favourite ways to change up my decor for little to no money. It’s so fun to be creative on a budget!

Now tell me: How do you decorate your home for free? I’d love to get your tips and ideas!


  1. The dollarstore is my best friend for seasonal decor. I’ll spend under $10 and get flowers of whichever color/season to decorate all over – whether on a wreath or in a vase.
    Another cheap thing I’ll do is change my pillow covers on my couch pillows. You might spend a little bit of money to buy new ones but you’ll store them away and use again and again each season.
    My kids also love to craft so we do cheap, but classy crafts that I’ll love to show off in my home!
