Truthfully, I've lost my taste for Dollar Tree hauls. Most of the stuff is cheap (hey, it only costs a buck) and the expectation is that it will be tossed in short time. That doesn't sit right with me. I whole-heartedly believe in recycling, which is why I have decided to cut back my visits to the Dollar Tree and heartily embrace thrifting.
I've tried to stop using so much plastic, but it's hard.
Back to my decorating finds...95% of my fall decor was previously enjoyed by someone else. I have no plans to buy anymore Christmas stuff. I already have a full storage closest full of it. But thanks to yard and rummage sales, I can now decorate my home (and for dirt cheap) for every season.
"Oh, but you're an author. You must be rich!"
Ha! Did you know that publishers only pay authors twice a year? In April and October we can shoot the wad, but for the rest of the year we're watching our pennies. (Try telling the utility company you only get paid twice a year. Can you say "Collection Agency?")
But I digress.
So, what are your decorating plans for the next month?
