Affordable Spring Home Decor

Affordable Spring Refresh for Your Home {All Available at Wal-Mart!}

Wow, you guys!  Wal-Mart has SERIOUSLY stepped up their game in the Home Decor department over the last couple years.  Every season I’m more and more impressed with the fun goodies they come out with!!  So, of course they were my go-to when I started shopping around for affordable spring decor!!

If you remember, I did a Wal-Mart Holiday Round-Up a few months back.  Well, y’all loved that one so much I thought I’d do another one for Spring!!  Pluuuuusss….I may have mentioned this already, (if you follow me on Insta, you know I haven’t stopped mentioning it 😂) but I’m so sick of Winter at this point that I’m literally trying to bury myself in all things Spring!  I’m trying to will it here with ALL my might!!

So, because I’m already working on Springifying my home, (and bc tomorrow officially kicks of the start of my second favorite season) I thought I’d share some of the inspiration I’ve pulled from, and give y’all some ideas for refreshing yours!

How to Shop for the Best and Most Affordable Farmhouse Rugs on Amazon

The Best Farmhouse Rugs on Amazon, & Tips for Finding The Perfect Rug for YOU!!

Rugs.  I’m not gonna lie y’all.  When it comes to rugs…I always drop the ball!  Not because I don’t know how to pick ’em, but because they’re always the LAST thing I think of when it comes to home decor.  I am so ashamed to say I have like 3 rugs in my house right now!  I know.  It’s basically a crime.  We have so much wood floor in our house and I only have, MAYBE, 5% of it covered.  No wonder my house is cold and my feet always hurt, lol 😂.

Seriously though, I’ve been searching high and low for rugs over these last few weeks and was THRILLED to see that Amazon not only has GREAT options, but they’re SUPER affordable too!!  And because I liked what I saw while I was perusing the infinite webspace that is The Amazon Marketplace (seriously, they have SO MUCH STUFF), I decided it might be helpful to go ahead and round-up my absolute fave farmhouse-style finds to share them with you guys as well!!

Affordable & AWESOME Faux Floral Finds From T.J.Maxx

Who out there is ready for spring?? 🙋🏻‍♀️🙋🏻‍♀️

Well, as ready as I am, I can tell you it’s absolutely no where in sight for those of us here in the Chicagoland area.  But, rather than wish away the weeks, I’m actually soaking up these beautiful snow covered views we’ve had the last few days/weeks.  Y’all, I’ve never seen snow so glittery!!  It literally looks like billions of diamonds covering the ground and trees.  It’s absolutely breathtaking.

All that said, I’m still lookin forward to the warmer temps, bright colors, and sweet sweet smells of spring.

I’ve already started brainstorming the aesthetic I’m going for this spring, and while doing that, a light bulb went off! Y’all are always asking me where I get my faux greenery and floral, so as I was shopping around for my spring inspiration, I thought I’d throw a blog post together for y’all to share some of my favorite affordable floral finds!! And the truth is, even though I found these items while brainstorming my spring design plan, most (if not all) of these items would work very nicely for ANY season!! Y’all know I love versatility in my decor!! So the fact that this collection of faux floral and greenery could work all year-round is just an added bonus!!

Because I know the cost of floral and greenery can add up, I made sure to only add items that were super affordable—and where do you think I went to look for these goodies?!  T.J. Maxx of course!!! (No, this is NOT sponsored, I just love that their decor is so fairly priced, super on trend, and AVAILABLE ONLINE!!  I’m a fan of shopping from my couch if you couldn’t tell, lol.

EC Life Planner to stay organized in the new year

Getting & Staying Organized in 2019

And just like that the first three weeks of the new year are already over!  I seriously can’t believe it!  Although, for us, Weeks 1, 2, & 3  were spent recovering from a wicked stomach bug, strep, and scarlet fever;  so that could be why it was kind of a blur…my memory must be trying to just block it out. 😂

Anywho, Week 4, I see you!  And this week has been dedicated to preparing & planning for 2019! If you’ve followed me on Instagram for awhile, then you already know I’m a planner.  And a list maker.  And an all around control freak (but that’s neither here nor there).  Well, my Holy Grail of planning & staying on track is my Erin Condren Life Planner.
