If you are a decorating addict like me, your husband will say we don’t need to buy any more frames! That is the case at our house. So what do I do… find creative ways to save money on frames. Here are a few of my favorite ways:
>>Shop the clearance aisle at Hobby Lobby. I found a few $30 table top frames that had the back broken off. Got them for $4! It didn’t matter since I wanted to use them to hang anyway. Seriously, this is how I’ve scored the best frames for cheap. They always have a good stock too!
>>Rearrange the frames you already have. If you are anything like me, you printed so many wedding pictures. A few years later, it is all baby! As the seasons in your life change, you may want to change some of the pictures. Take a few frames you already have and give them new life by moving them around in your house and changing out the photographs.
>>Use coupons! Hobby lobby and Michaels both have apps with coupons each week. And Hobby lobby has tabletop frames half off all the time!
>>Shop Michaels sales. I got these 11X14 frames for $6 a piece for my stairway gallery wall!! Patience pays off when decorating! Since I bought these frames, I have seen the 70% off frames sale a few times. Sometimes you can even use extra coupons on these. I chose the prints for this gallery wall randomly sifting through photos, but they are a good representation of our little family. Lots of Army pictures, our doggie, and Savannah, GA (the Forsyth fountain).
>>Shop the discount stores like TJMaxx and Marshalls. I am a little partial to these stores, or as others would call it, obsessed! I may have been there yesterday. They have such unique, reasonably priced frames. Just be careful not to buy the entire store!
>>Go to thrift shops! Or even better, shop your mom’s closets for those vintage frames! See, another reason moms are the best!
