If you have not discovered Pinterest, you are missing out on a great resource for creativity as well as saving money. Ideas are all over the site for ways to decorate your home and garden, put outfits together, organize your life and anything else you can possibly think of. But, personally, I think that one of the best ways to use Pinterest is to see what projects you can create and save money doing yourself rather than buying.
With spring and Easter upon us, many of us will change out the decor in our homes. We will go out with the winter colors and bring in the bright spring colors. Door wreathes will change as will floral arrangements and table decor. This is the perfect time to check out what ideas are out there to redecorate your home yourself, and use the following local deals at shops to purchase your supplies. You will be saving money by doing projects yourself and saving more money by getting needed items for the projects at discount prices. Here are some local places to check out for craft and home decor supplies.
