For most of this year we’ve been planning to move. There’s nothing wrong with our current house, we really like it here, but a friend of ours had a property becoming available that we’d always dreamed of living in. A beautiful little cottage on a mountain. For the moment at least, that plan is on hold. It’s not never going to happen, but it’s not happening for a while.
It’s not a really a big deal, like I said we do like our current house, so it’s we’re not desperate or stuck somewhere we don’t want to be. But I’ve spent so much of this year planning the redecoration of somewhere new, I’ve let our home slide. It’s starting to feel like a house and not a home. With my favourite time of year rapidly approaching, I know I’m going to want to make my home a cosy and welcoming again, for us as well as any family and friends that will visit.
I’m going to be going through each room, decluttering and getting rid of a lot of the junk that is hoarded, and redecorating or adding some new personal touches. There’s something to be done to every room. That’s the kitchen, living room, dining room, bathroom, two bedrooms and a spare room. It’s not all a big refresh, some rooms just need a few little changes, but others need a bigger overhaul.
I have zero budget for this! It’s going to be done on as little money as possible…mainly because we have none 😀
Charity shops, sale items, free cycle, up cycling, selling our unwanted stuff. Way more fun than simply shopping!
So wish us luck as we start sorting out and improving the Herniman House!
Do you have a sort out at this time of year? Have you got any tips for home improvements on a budget?
