Feeling bored with the typical weekend routine of trying to rally your friends into going to some random bar? Feel like you are too short on money and time to host a party? No problem! Remember how much fun you used to have as a kid playing with your friends? Embrace your inner child and have a GAME NIGHT! I love hosting parties but have a full time job and have a tight budget. Here are some ways I have found to stretch my pennies, conserve my time, and make a BIG impact.
Spring is in full swing and this is the time for rejuvenation. The first thing that comes to most people’s mind is cleaning out their closet. I (having an unhealthy attachment to my clothes) take a very different approach. Redecorating. Being on a budget, I have to start with things that give me the biggest change fast. The number one thing that can completely change the feel of a room is paint. My apartment was originally ALL white and I felt like I should be in a straight jacket! That is definitely not how you want to feel in your home. Once you figure out what you want the feeling to be, check out colors that reflect that. There is power in hues and HGTV has a great guide to the psychology of color.
