$100 Spring Spruce Up Plan! Add Some Fresh Spring Looks to Your House While Staying on a Budget!

Spring is here!!
How does your home look? Are you a Spring Cleaning type of person?
Once the sun starts shining and the stores start carrying all the colorful spring items-I am READY for change and a fresh new start.

If I started buying everything the looks pretty and makes me feel good, I would be in BIG trouble. However-with a budget and some discipline-you can make quite a few changes to spruce up your home and get ready for Spring!

Here are a few changes I made to my house to prepare for Spring

#1 Spring Cleaning.
This one is FREE! Even if you need to buy some cleaners, use some coupons and your cost is minimal.
I like to go all out. Clean out the fridge, scrub the floors, wipe down walls, and clean as much as I can with spring scented cleaners!

Average Cost $10, but I had most items already!
For large cleaning days like this I like to buy a big thing of Mr Clean and just add water to it in a bucket and scrub EVERYTHING.

You can also switch out your hand soaps to a spring scent, and add some spring air fresheners around the house.

#2 Painting
Once everything is clean, I like to pull out the backup paint out of the garage and go through and touch up the walls, baseboards, and anything else I can find.  If that seems boring, you can always buy a quart or gallon of a light spring color and paint an accent wall, the pantry, or a bathroom!

I also have a few spring color cans of spray paint. You can re-purpose small shelves, tables, vases, or anything else you don’t really use and make it look brand new for spring! 

This year I did have to buy a small pack of paint supplies. Home Depot has a great $9.95 kit, Target and Walmart have some that are inexpensive as well. Make sure you check what you have first though to keep from buying what you already have. 
Cost $15


#3 Outside

You can get crazy with this one once you get going, but you can also keep it simple.
Buy a new Welcome Mat! I found this cute one for $8.48 at Walmart! They had some cute $10 ones at Michael’s and Target had some too. I like the way this goes with my front door.
Cost $9

 

 

I also grabbed a Spring Sign to hang up as well to greet my visitors.
Depending on the style of your front yard, you can also add some flowers in your planters. Walmart and Home Depot have lots of options for less than 4-$5 a plant and they are already in bloom. Adding splashes of color will increase your curb appeal, and you will enjoy pulling up to your house!

Cost $8

 

 

#4 Decorate the Inside
You don’t have to buy everything new!!! Just add splashes of color to what you have. I keep my basic stuff whites, beiges, and browns so that I can swap out different colors with the season. I spent $30 on these pillows from Michael’s.

Cost $32 for 2 pillows

 

 

 

 

 

I bought these Spring Towels from the Dollar Spot at Target-$3.

The Dollar Spot at Target has so many different spring items that will add splashes of color in lots of places. Little pots, towels, washcloths, plants, flowers, and more. I hung these towels on the oven in the kitchen and it looks nice.

Cost $6

 

 

I had this metal watering can i wasn’t using from an old decorating scheme. I bought a spring bouquet for it from Michael’s for $5 and it looks great on my counter!

If you have something similar, or an old ugly pot-paint it! Spray paint can do wonders. You can get white spray paint at Walmart for $1-this would look good painted white as well-maybe for Summer!

Cost $6

 

 

#5 Gardening
I used to HATE Gardening. Now I find it kind of fun-and the kids do too! In the garden sections of Target and Walmart they have these easy kits to grow seeds! Seeds at Walmart were as low as $.20 a pack! You don’t even have to buy potting soil if you don’t want to (until your seeds sprout and you have to put them in a larger pot/planter)

 I am going to re-purpose some old pots I have, but spray paint them spring colors!

 

You can also buy plants already growing and skip the whole seed planting and watering process! Home Depot has tomato, eggplant, jalapeno plants and more already growing!! It just depends on how much you want to experience and how much you want to pay! My kids get exciting when what they plant starts to grow, so we went with the seed kits.

I also bought potting soil and will paint colorful pots for when they need to be transferred.

Gardening Costs :$21 I bought Seed kits, seeds and potting soil.

 

Here is how they look once they started growing! Which took just a couple DAYS!

Shopkick App-Earn FREE Gift Cards For Starbucks, Target, and MORE!

Here is another one of my FAVORITE APPS-SHOPKICK!!

EVERYONE in my family has a Shopkick App!

All you have to do is open your Shopkick app up at the stores that offer “kicks” to walk in.
When your Kicks add up for enough to earn a gift card-you can redeem your kicks!

To get MORE kicks-
Scan items in the store (different for each store)
Link your debit/credit card and receive kicks for shopping at certain stores- I get kicks for shopping at TJ Maxx, Home Goods, and Marshalls automatically added to my account!

 

 

I can usually get $5-$10 in gift cards each month with this app pretty easily. If my kids are with me it gives them something to do while they are in the stores. They go around Target, Walmart-or grocery stores and scan the items that are offered. Keeps them occupied-and they get their own Starbucks cards!

 

 

 

 

 

I usually save mine up until I can get a larger amount-or I need a gift.

I did save mine up for awhile because I knew we were going to Seattle-and I KNEW there would be Starbucks there!

 

 

 

 Here is my husband enjoying his coffee at the Starbucks Reserve! 

He saved up like $10 from Shopkick, and I had $20 so we drank free coffee that weekend because of our Shopkick App!

Join SHOPKICK with this link – 
USE CODE GIFT878432 and we both get points towards FREE gift cards!

To sign up

Download the App
Use THIS CODE-RPEKY -enter it as your referral code-to get $5 FREE for doing nothing!

Then-register your credit cards or bank cards-sound weird I know-But every time I get gas at Safeway, or shop at Target or any of the stores that I added to my account- I get points AUTOMATICALLY for shopping there!

I don’t have to take any pictures, cut any coupons or do ANYTHING and I was able to earn $15 in gift cards IN MY FIRST MONTH (plus my $5 initial gift!)

There are MORE ways to earn extra points faster-choosing more offers, shopping through the app etc-but I have not taken the time really to do that-I pretty much just let it alone and let the points accumulate! It has been the easiest app so far. It isn’t a HUGE moneymaker, but 1-3 free Starbucks cards a month works for me!

Grocery Outlet Deals Week of 10/31/18 -Save on School Lunches!

I stop into the Grocery Outlet every once in awhile just to check out the deals!

Between there and the $.99 Cent Only Sotre I can get some good snacks and lunch items for the kids’ lunches and sports! Paying full prices for these things would definitely break my budget!

 

$.99 Nutri Grain Bars! My kids only like apple, so this is awesome. I buy 1-2 boxes of each item that are great deals. I also check the dates-some items are lower priced because they expire soon, you can’t really stock up for the year with these deals. 

 

One thing I have learned here and at the 99 Cent Only Sttore-there will ALWAYS be good deals. i used to buy a TON of every deal, then the next week buy a TON, then by the end of the month I had way more food than my kids could eat, and I spent more money because it was “such a good deal”. There will always be good deals, so f you buy extras -skip the next week!
