Well friends, we are home for most of this summer! Are you excited about that? Okay, I know you may be feeling frustrated because your vacation plans have been changed, but I am doing my best to try and make the best of the situation. For me that means I am doing a lot of work on my yard. I want my outdoor space to feel like a bit of an oasis since I am not able to travel to an oasis like I really wanted to.
I am still me though and I don’t want to spend a fortune on lawn and patio furniture. I want to save money while creating a beautiful space. So far, I have been doing pretty good at it! Want to know how? Check out these tips:
3 Tips for Saving Money on Outdoor Furniture
There are so many great deals out there, take advantage of them. You can find some barely used furniture for little to nothing on sites such as OfferUp or even FB Marketplace. For example, I just spotted a beautiful wooden picnic-type table and 6 matching chairs for $100. I also saw two cute adirondack chairs for free! These were both amazing deals!
Make Your Own
My daughter and I recently got hold of some pallets for some projects that we have in mind and while looking at different options, I spotted some seriously cute lawn furniture made out of pallets and pillows. I think we have decided to make them! I’m so excited and it will cost me just the price of the pillows (which are half off at Rite Aid right now btw).
I mentioned in the above paragraph that Rite Aid currently had 50% off of their outdoor pillows, but it’s not just their pillows, ALL OF THE SUMMER STUFF IS ON SALE. That includes lawn furniture. Just today I grabbed two of the hard plastic adirondack style chairs to go out by my fire pit for just $12.99. Unfortunately, they didn’t have many left, but since I got a standard color (brown), I know I will be able to find more at another store.
