Working on a tight budget is something that we all experience on a daily basis. It has become something of a norm for us to cut corners when getting something and try to grab everything we can within the limitation of the notes of the wallet (or balance on the card). So when it comes to something huge as decorating your house for an occasion or even for making it look better, it can be a hassle to even think about it when you see the prices on the items that you need.

Here is how.
Make a list of priorities
No, really; have a list of priority items that you need to get no matter what. Try to google online to see the price ranges of the items and pick out the ones that you can buy on your current budget. The priority list will have items listed out per room and will only have the items that you really need and cannot live without. Check out magazines, internet and get ideas from your friends for picking out the priority items that you want to buy.

Make a cost sheet
