So at 40 years old, I'm proud to say I have my own checking account. Yes we share one too, but I don't dare touch it. The temptation would be too great. So what that means is, I have 2 weeks to make my "paycheck" last. If you're still in my boat, then you know what payday is like. The term "hog wild" was invented just for me. Unfortunately, I spend the next week and 6 days trying to figure out how to un-due the damage I've just done. Do I return something or make my family live on spaghetti for a few days? It's a pickle people.
So when the urge strikes to do some tweaking around the house, but the budget doesn't permit a trip to Marshall's I have no choice but to shop the basement. And that's exactly what I did. I thought I'd share with you what a shopping spree in my basement could yield on a good day.
I had an empty wall in my Kitchen that needed a little somethin-somethin', so I moved this Southern Living At Home wall pocket from another room. I found the sunflowers in my "Fall Decorations" tote in the storage closet.
Kinda like it there. Please excuse the poor lighting.
After yardsaling last week, I brought home more "stuff" which found a new home, but required me to shuffle things around a bit. These SLAH planters got moved next to the stove. I shopped the basement and found Kitchen-y things to put in them.
Also tweaked the kitchen hutch.
While in the Fall tote, I also spotted this pretty planter that I trash-picked last year. I threw my geraniums in there and I like the colors together. In the basement, I also found this SLAH candlestick and put it next to the planter. Can you tell I have a thing for Souther Living???
Now don't tell anybody, but on the back of that planter are acorns, bein' it's a fall decoration and all....
I started tweaking the Powder Room next. Remember that table I trashpicked from a neighbor a couple weeks ago? Well it found a new home in my garden-themed Powder Room.
I shopped the basket on top from out of the basement and stuck some towels and a candle in it.
Some tweaky love in the Family Room.
See that desk in the corner?
Yeah, that one.
I got those balls on clearance from Home Goods and needed something to put them in. I shopped the basement and found these two separate containers. Lurve how they look!!
So that's it. I got rid of the Tweak Bug and made it through just in time for payday! I will try to pace myself, but for me, it's way easier said than done. Wish me luck.
