contentment found on a budget

dear readers,

i hope this blog inspires you.

i hope it spurs you on and encourages you that you can achieve your decorating dreams. on a budget.

wouldn't life be easier if there was no need for budgets? maybe. maybe not.

you see, contentment is not found in what you have or don't have. you can have millions of dollars and not be content. you could have a hundred dollars and be content.

contentment is learned. contentment is a choice. a decision. a discipline.

i encourage you women. don't let yourself go down the path of trying to keep up with the joneses. you will be defeated. instead look at all the blessings around you. focus on what you've been blessed with instead of looking at what you don't have.

i have found joy in making my house a home on a budget. i would encourage you to do the same.

there is joy in knowing that i can achieve the same look as high end magazines by using things i've pulled from dumpsters. who says you have to spend a lot of money to have a beautiful home?

again, the purpose of this blog is to encourage homemakers to not feel overwhelmed but empowered to make their decorating dreams a reality - and still have money in the bank.

once again, you don't have to be original to have a beautiful home. you just need the right resources.

let this blog be a resource.

I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want. Philippians 4:12
