Fashionista Friday: From Basket to Boho Home Chic!

  I’m currently embarking on a closet purge so I can have more space for new Goodwill finds such as clothing and home decor. One item I have been looking for is something to store my blankets so they’re not all over the place around my apartment. Today’s Fashionista Friday gave me the perfect idea. […]

Guest Blogger: From Granny Bland to Hollywood Glam Side Tables

No offense to our grandmothers (mine was a great role model), but they often had homes full of furniture items that have been handed down from other places and eras so they don’t fit today’s design aesthetic.  While often discarded, these pieces could be given a new life with just a little effort.  When you […]

Guest Blogger: Decorate Your Home for the Holidays With Pillows

I love changing out my holiday décor and making my home cozier for the winter season.  Goodwill is a great place to find seasonal décor, especially wreaths.  Most of the Goodwill stores that I’ve been to even have a seasonal decor aisle year round.  In the past, I’ve gotten plain wreaths from Goodwill and decorated […]

Guest Blogger: Your Back-to-School Shopping Helps Others

The last of the fireworks had barely popped and sizzled before the first back-to-school shopping ads started airing on tv and radio.
