So at the end of my time being here, there and everywhere, I ended up finding a bedding set at my old faithful - TJ MAXX. Why do I bother ever going anywhere else? I completely revamped my room for a total of $198. Bedspread, sheets, and 8 decorative pillows. Side designer note: don't skimp on the decorative pillows. They finish off the look.
If you've never been in a TJ Maxx, especially a TJ Maxx Home Goods, I encourage you to seek one out. You will be like a kid in a candy shop in their home section. They have awesome decorative accessories for every room in your house - pillows, candles, mirrors, frames, lamps, rugs, baskets, towels, flowers, vases, etc. They even have furniture, tableware, holiday decorations, clothing and a kid's section at great prices too!

Ok so why is this a WEEKEND WARRIOR CHALLENGE? There's got to be some room in your house that needs a little pick me up. Maybe a new rug? How about new bathroom towels? I'm not telling you to go out and spend a ton of money. I'm encouraging you to design on a dime. Get creative. Add a pop of color. Rearrange some things in your house. Change out your candles. Get a picture on that bare wall.

As you can see, I'm a huge fan of TJ Maxx and Target. You can't go wrong with Ikea prices either. Cost Plus World Market is also at the top of my list - they have great selection and prices too. I'll sometimes find stuff in Pier 1 Imports. Marshalls is ok but don't waste your time at Ross. They are always so disorganized you'll get frustrated before you even begin. When I want to splurge a little more, Crate & Barrel & Z Gallerie are staples. I don't do a lot of shopping online for home goods. I have to see it and feel it and I hate wasting money on shipping.
Now that you know where to go, have fun DESIGNING ON A DIME! And remember, it's hip to be a Bargainista. :)
