Confession: I’ve spent the last couple of years spending way too much money on decorations, and useful items you can find lying around the house . And while it’s still nice to go shopping for new stuff, I’ve stumbled across a couple of simple and money-saving DIY ways to keep you and your home looking wonderful without breaking the bank.

The term “Do-it-yourself” has become increasingly popular for us 20-something’s over the last few years. It is an attitude of self-empowerment and openness to learning. Do-it-yourselfers include those who build and fix things, cook “from scratch,” make clothes, crafts, decorations, and so much more. Plus, when you do it yourself, you might just discover new talents in yourself that you never knew you had. Check out some fun ideas below:
