Are you like me and wonder how in the heck you spent so much money at Costco or at Lowe’s? It seems like every time I come back from the store, I'm trying to figure out where I went wrong and spent so much money. Recently, my husband and I decided to overhaul the inside of our home. Going into the project we thought it would be simple. Some new paint, some new flooring, and we would be good to go. We were wrong. After you scrape every room that has popcorn ceilings and then paint everything, you realize that you've put in a lot more work than you initially thought you would. And a lot more money. This project taught me a lot about home renovations and simple things I can do (and you can to) to save money at home.
