Home Décor Hacks for $1

You’d be surprised at what one buck can buy you at the local dollar store. With a keen eye and a couple dollars in hand, you can pick up treasures that can fool most people into thinking that you spent much more. I’m a bargain hunter. I love to get a good deal, but what I love even more – surprising someone with the statement, “I got it at the dollar store!” *gasp* “Yes, the DOLLAR STORE.”

When I say dollar store items, I’m not talking about decorating with seasonal party supplies or a grouping of ceramic geese. I found items that with a little styling and imagination can easily be mistake for something from a higher-end retail store.

Here are some examples of some of my favorite finds and what I use them for around my house:

Hobnail Glassware

What a perfect juice glass! These hobnail glasses add the perfect vintage touch and would look great on kitchen table for Sunday brunch. They are the perfect size for a refreshing glass of freshly squeezed OJ.

Glass Apothecary Jars

I always need a little extra organization in my life. (who doesn’t?? lol) These petite glass apothecary jars are ideal for wrangling small items. I popped a couple of these on my bathroom counter to hold my cotton rounds, q tips and hair ties. What a great way to keep the bathroom tidy, store commonly used items at hand and add vintage style to your bathroom.

Ceramic Dinner Plates

The dollar store is always a good spot to pick up some inexpensive dinnerware. (You won’t have to cry over a chipped plate…it was only a $1!) These neutral plates can be easily mixed and matched with dishes you already have.

P.S. The flowers and napkin where a dollar too! 🙂

It is always a fun challenge to elevate dollar store items. I’d love to hear if you’ve ever had luck finding treasures from the dollar store. Message me, I’d love to share!
