Have you ever heard of going shopping in your own home? 🛍🏡 You might find that you need less because you’ve found ways to reuse items that you already have. It might sound crazy to think about, but you’d be surprised by the amount of stuff you have that can be reused or repurposed!
Here’s how you can shop in your home!
1️⃣ Look for storage items. We already have so many storage items in our homes! From the kitchen to the garage, you are bound to have items that can be reused or repurposed into storage.
2️⃣ Restyle your spaces! You most likely have a style or theme to your home, meaning that if you move items from room to room, you might find a better place for them! Try rearranging your plants, pillows or smaller furniture items.
3️⃣ Declutter. Sometimes clutter doesn’t mean that it doesn’t belong, it’s just in the wrong place. Try moving around some of the items that you might consider clutter and if they still don’t belong, then you know it’s time to sell or donate!
4️⃣ Find enjoyment from items you already own. We often save things for ‘special occasions’ when in reality we aren’t enjoying our stuff and our homes because we are constantly saving them for later. Stop saving and start enjoying! Light the candle, use those fancy wine glasses- just because.
What are the benefits to shopping in your own home? First off it will cost you much less! Maybe you’ll just need to buy some paint or maybe you’ll have everything you need already. It will also create less waste and help you to declutter your home! You’ll have the opportunity to get creative with items you already have and learn to love them again.
