You’ve decided to redecorate your home or maybe just a room or two but with the price of gas and everything else going up you don’t want to spend a fortune in order to accomplish your goal. Until you hit the lottery or some other windfall comes your way, you should check out some of the discount outlets stores that just might have what you’re looking for or what you need. Though this is like hitting garage sale after garage sale to find something in particular it could save you tons of money in the long run. These stores tend to move small lots of inventory and they sell out quickly, which means you might miss something you needed if you don’t check often.
As for clothes, consider brands. Old Navy, Gap, and Gymboree clothes you can price higher, because the parents are still getting a good deal. Anything new with the tags still attached can easily sell for $3. I recommend pricing kids shirts for around .50 cents each, cotton pants for around .50 cents each, jeans around $1 each, and jackets at around $3 each. Remember, like-new clothes or those with the tags attached can be reasonably priced higher and will likely sell.
Create frames, plaques, doorknob hangers, rearview mirror hangers, pins, purse embellishments, belt embellishments and much, much more. Use inexpensive craft supplies, like pom-poms, glitter, sequin, roping, leather strips and pipe cleaners to create more elaborate designs.
Decorate the home with bookends made from books. Old used, worn books make fabulous and unique bookends. You will need acrylic craft spray, strong glue and assorted used books. Simply glue several old hard cover books together. Coat with acrylic spray and let dry. It may take several coats of spray to keep pages from separating.
Oh, it deserves a mention that, upon drying, the doilies or fabric decor pieces will not feel sticky to the touch. Also, you don’t have to knit or tat the doilies yourself. You’ll still find doilies at department stores, craft stores – even dollar-theme stores.
If sales are low, decide on some areas that you could cut back in. For me, I decided to lower prices on a select portion of our rajasthani bags. Knowing that I’d rather make some money versus no money. Resolution: By being proactive now, you’re not waiting until you have to react, which can stir up panic amongst your staff, and that is never a good scenario.
