Interior Decorating for Tightwads

Amy Dycyzyn has an article in her book The Complete Tightwad Gazette about interior decorating. This article can be found on page 93. It discusses cleaning and decluttering. And it discusses decorating on the cheap.

Usually, my method of decorating involves simply changing up the rooms. Rearranging after decluttering and cleaning, and switching items between rooms.

I have found great deals on some items at yard sales and flea markets. Given this, it seems natural to me to carry out decorating  activities during the winter months, after the holiday rush is over.

What ideas do you have for frugal decorating?

  1. Heya i got to your site by mistake when i was searching bing for something off topic here but i do have say your site is really helpful, like the theme and the content on here…so thanks for me procrastinating from my previous task, lol

  2. For my sons’ room, I found a colorful striped comforter for $10 and am now just decorating the room around those colors. We’re repainting their dressers (bought for $5 each) so they’ll match. The knobs match because we salvaged them off a throw away dresser. My older daughter is helping me make some paintings for the wall & simple things like matching pillows & stuffed animals finish up the look. The nice thing about stripes is that as they grow older we can change the theme but still have matching colors for things.
