Right on the Money: Save or Splurge?

Right on the Money

Image 1 of 7

Decorating our homes is always exciting, whether you’re working with a designer or putting your own design skills to work. But when it comes time to spending the budget, the excitement can begin to fade quickly. To stay on budget, decisions have to be made – can you afford custom furnishings and draperies or will stock items work? Investing time in researching products and services before you start to shop will help you determine where to splurge and where to save. There are always ways to find a less expensive version of something you can’t live without, so shop around! That’s the fun part!
