Do you identify with needing budget home decor?

As I started to think about writing today’s podcast, I realized I was writing it for a very specific person. I’m not sure how many of these people are out there, honestly, but I figured if it were an encouragement or gave even a few people some glimpses of hope for beauty in their home everyday, it would be worth it.

So this podcast is for the person living in a home that is sort of dilapidated and sad. When you visit your friends’ houses they all seem so pristine and pretty and put together, and so terribly opposite of what you’re living in that really they can’t be compared.

You know what the saying “trying to keep up with the Joneses” means, but it doesn’t even affect you because there’s no way on God’s green earth you could ever begin to try to keep up with the Jones family finances! So you don’t even try…


You want to live in a house that makes you feel at home – a house that gives you joy and makes you smile, and makes you feel at peace, and is a place where you gather together with your family and feel cozy and safe..

If that’s you, Sweet Friend, click PLAY on today’s episode to get some ideas to make your home cozy & beautiful without having to spend much money!

  • Two important steps to making your home feel more refreshed – without spending a dime!
