Because of my business being so new and because of the part of the country I am in, I often get clients with limited budgets. I always reassure them that I can meet a tight budget by telling them I am the Queen of Bargain Shopping. And it’s no joke. I am always on the hunt for a good deal and I know where to shop to find great pieces that won’t break the bank.
That being said, I am always a proponent for quality over quantity. However, I know there are times when you just need to fill a space and quality isn’t necessarily a concern. A good example of this would be when accessorizing a home. There’s no reason you should spend $500 on a vase when you can find one just as beautiful for $50. Then when you get bored of your current look, you can drop off those budget accessories at your local Goodwill and start fresh!
Want to know where I shop when working on a very tight budget? My top 4 go-tos are Wayfair, Overstock, Marshalls and TJMaxx. Wayfair and Overstock have great prices on inexpensive furniture with fast, free shipping! When it comes to budget accessories, you can’t beat Marshalls and TJMaxx because they carry pieces that are very much on-trend, unlike what you’d find at places like Hobby Lobby, Gordman’s or Kirkland’s.
Here is a sneak peek of a staging job I did recently for a model apartment. The headboard and bench are from Wayfair, the nightstands are from Overstock and the accessories (lamps, mirrors, bedding, throw pillows, jewelry box, crystal perfume bottle, picture frame and coffee mug) are from Marshalls.
Here are some great finds on Wayfair. Keep in mind they also carry very high-end, high-quality pieces.
Overstock (as well as Wayfair) is a great place to shop for furnishings such as bedding and decorative mirrors.
