I'm excited at the chance to start over in a new place and redecorate, too. We are officially debt-free now (more on that later), so I feel like I will finally have the opportunity to express myself creatively. It was an interesting experiment, trying to decorate on a budget of $75/month, but I would call it a "fail." I found that the money didn't really stretch that far, and I was limited to purchasing small decorative items.
Sooooooooo...going forward, I will be beefing up my budget. I am still going to try to keep purchases reasonable. This means Craigslisting and DIYing whenever possible, but I'm not going to feel guilty about spending a little more on a good quality piece. I look forward to sharing all the changes with you. See you in Chattanooga!!
