If you're decorating on a budget, my first piece of advice is to sign up for a Target red card. With this card, you'll receive 5% off on all of your purchases and free-shipping. Sometimes, you'll even get exclusive access to sales and other great deals. That's how I got this cute futon on sale, and had it shipped to my apartment and carried up five flights of stairs free of charge. Divider Boxes & Baskets Futon (purchased on sale)

Hit up your local thrift stores. It can be frustrating, but eventually, you'll find something worth your time. Trust me. Just check out this awesome wine rack that I spray painted gold. Thrift Store Wine Rack Side Table Frames
