Decorating your home on a budget: My beautiful .99 wall lettering!

Do you love to decorate your home? If you are like me, I love to scour through decorating magazines to get new ideas to experiment with! Sometimes I will look at an idea in a magazine and think to myself, "How can I do this same idea, but for much cheaper?" I also am a big fan of HGTV--many of the shows on there will show you how to decorate for basically nothing!

Have you seen those beautiful wall lettering designs that are so popular right now? There are a couple of high-end websites that sell nothing but wall lettering. This is such a beautiful idea, but it can be on the expensive side.

I had really been wanting to try out this wall-lettering idea in my condo, when my friend Kristi invited me into her house. She had some of these cute wall phrases on her walls and told me how easy it was to apply them! Believe it or not, these are just vinyl letters! Kristi told me that she found her lettering at Kohl's for very inexpensive--she actually gave me a phrase for my living room that says--Family one of God's masterpieces--It is done in black and white and just exquisite looking! I will have to take a picture when I get that one up.

Well, one day I was at Kohl's (my favorite store--hubby says that I have an addiction-LOL!) and looking in the Clearance section of the Home Decorations. Lo and behold, I found a package of lettering that says--Scatter Sunshine. It was only $5.99 and I had a $5 coupon so I got it for .99! I was so excited to put this up in my kitchen. Here is the finished product, and I think it looks really cute! I put it in a space that was just kind of a blank canvas--now, it is cheerful!

Don't forget to check the clearance section at your favorite store. You never know what kind of gem you just might find for decorating your home!

I will have to tell you some more of my decorating finds at a later date, but I just wanted you to see that decorating your home does not have to be expensive!

Have fun watching HGTV and reading your favorite decorating magazines! :-)

~Thrifty Thursday Tip:Making your own Holiday drinks at home!~

I know that you have heard me say on more than one occasion about how much I love Peppermint Mochas and  Pumpkin Spice lattes at Starbucks and Dunkin Donuts. Well, those yummy drinks can get quite expensive after awhile, right? It is well over $4 now for a Peppermint Mocha Latte at Starbucks! Wow!!

I have found that General Foods International (from the makers of Maxwell House Coffee) make a Peppermint Mocha and Pumpkin Spice coffee powdered beverage mix that you can add to hot/cold milk or water and it tastes just like these high-priced drinks but for a fraction of the price! You will need to look for these in the coffee aisle of your store--they are priced in the $3 range, but there are at least 15-18 servings per can! If you want to go all out, you could even add a flavored creamer for more indulgence! Yummo! I have seen coupons for these before as well! Today I splurged at Target and bought one of the new flavors~ Raspberry Truffle Latte~doesn't that sound divine? 

If you are looking for a way to jazz up your coffee, you should try the International Delight Chocolate Mint Truffle creamer! It is so yummy too! While at Publix today, I noticed that they also have a White Chcolate Raspberry creamer! I did not have my coupon with me for it, so I passed this time! ;-) Coffeemate also makes a great Peppermint Mocha and Gingerbread creamer!

I love to splurge every once in awhile on my favorite drinks at Starbucks & Dunkin Donuts, but I also want to save my hard-earned money! By making experimenting and making my favorite drinks at home, I can enjoy several different flavors, for a fraction of the price!

Have fun and save money making your favorite holiday drinks at home! ;-)

*~My Sweet Albertson's Trip~*

I really wanted to get to Albertsons yesterday when their sale started, but I was feeling a bit under the weather. Thankfully, they still had the Marcal toilet paper in stock today! I just love when they put the FREE coupon in the newspaper! It makes for FREE toilet paper at Albies when they have them on sale for $1 a pack! (that is the maximum value on the coupon) While this toilet paper definitely is not one of the softest on your tushie, it is nice to have it in my stockpile in case of an emergency! ;-)

So, here is what I ended up getting for only $3.60!    

~10 packages of Marcal toilet paper @ $1 per package minus 10 FREE manuf. coupons = FREE!

~3 cans of Progresso Vegetable soup @ $1 per can minus $1.10/3 manuf. coupon from www.coupons.com = $1.90 for 3 cans of yummy soup!

~2 packages of Coles Garlic bread @ $1 per package minus 2 .50/1 manuf. coupons from www.coupons.com = $1.00 for loaves of Garlic bread! I love to have these on hand in the freezer!
