Cheaply Homely.

“Home is wherever I’m with you.”

Home by Edward Sharpe and The Magnetic Zeroes is the cutest folksy song, ever. If you haven’t heard it, you must download it! I just love this song dearly – why? My boyfriend and I are working on 4 months of being together-together after knowing each other for 7 years. Downfall, we’re long distance..a good 2 hour-or-2.5 hour-trip, depending if you’re speed demon-ing your way to Houston/Austin.With me trying to figure out my internship location/deal/happenings, there’s no telling where I’ll end up. I miss my family/boyfriend/friends back in Houston, but, really..home is whenever I’m with my loved ones in Houston or Austin.

I’m thankful to have a roof over my head, but my current living situation is a bit re-donk-u-lus. There’s 4 of us in a 4 bedroom/4 bath townhome in a college apartment complex. It’s constantly loud, trashed from social gatherings, and munchkin sized rooms. My queen size bed, dresser, nightstand, and dog crate take up my ENTIRE room. I also have a sliding-mirrored closet. I take GREAT offense to that. I’m such a nut for my clothes, why would you give me two doors, no walkspace, no shelves, so I can’t admire the beauty my closet gives off? Sad.  We also do not have any furniture. My roommate sold our couch, kitchen table, 6 dining room chairs, coffee table, side table and T.V. at the end of January for when she moves to Hawaii in June. I know, I thought the EXACT same thing. So really, this place is just being occupied.

I’m hoping I get to stay in Austin, the boyfriend moves to Austin, and I move to my own place to call my own. My own pots and pans, my own furniture, my own doormat. Yeah, my very own.

So, I’ve been on a home decor hunt! Pottery Barn had a DIRT cheap sale for their holiday decorations. Ha. I can’t even think about the end of this year just yet, but it was cheap and worth it.

Faux Leaves – $1.16 –> originally $14.00
2 boxes of Faux Snow – $0.84 each –> originally $12.00
Small wooden crate – $9.84 –> originally $29.00
Cranberry vase filler – $1.16 –> originally $14.00
Boxwood lit up tree – $8.47 –> originally $79.00
3 boxes of glass ornaments – $0.82 each –> originally $14.00

So I paid $26.27 (including tax) for these 9 items. Combined, it would’ve cost me $202.00! So I potentially saved $175.73 had I have bought these full-priced. Not bad for some holiday decor. Now if only I had room to store it…
