31 Cute Home Decor Items You Definitely Need This Summer — For Less Than $50
A few years ago, my roommates decided to move out, and my boyfriend and I inherited their rent-controlled apartment, which is basically like winning the lottery. When they moved though, they took everything that was theirs, meaning literally everything. Outside of our bedroom, we had never purchased a single thing because it was always their house — we just rented a room. Suddenly, we were left we a completely bare space — we didn't even have a sofa or trash cans. We purchased the essentials first, which was really expensive and figured we could work on the decor over time. Two years later, and I'm still trying to finish decorating. There's always the struggle of wanting something cute that looks pricey but actually isn't.
I've learned to turn to places like Amazon, Walmart, and even Urban Outfitters. All these retailers have beyond-stylish items at great prices, plus they all have impressive shipping options. So if you're also on a mission to spruce up your space, I'm here to help. Ahead, I've curated a list of my favorite things that cost less than $50. This way, you don't have to feel bad about purchasing more than one (or three) thing(s) at once. From rugs to planters, shop my hottest picks ahead.
