The most common question I’m asked when it comes to this blog is “Where did you get that?” so I’ve always made an effort to include my sources (during the remodel process, in the room reveal, and of course on my Home Tour/Sources page) to help my fellow budget shoppers achieve the same look.
After eight years of home renovation and three houses later, I have a system down for budgeting and shopping for every item, and using these sources I’ve been able to design my dream spaces on a very real budget while adding significant equity to our homes.
Deciding what to buy can be frustrating and even paralyzing for many, so I’ve created this budget shopping guide, showing exactly where I shop for everything in my home.
I compiled my list and created a free 21-page PDF guide (broken down by category) with bonus tips and tricks I swear by to stretch your dollar even further. If you already subscribe to my newsletter, you’ll automatically get this guide in your next email at the end of the month. If not, make sure to sign up now and you’ll have it delivered right away so you can start planning your next renovation with confidence!
I’ve also provided the basic list below (minus my bonus tips and commentary). Here you’ll find links to my top sites (most recommended listed first) along with a few of my favorite items from each category—most of which I own and love. Happy Shopping!

Some links may contain affiliates, which have no impact whatsoever on their inclusion in this guide. Thank you for your support!
I hope this helps those of you looking to maximize your budget and find exactly what you’re looking for! I enjoyed putting this list together and hope you find it useful. As always, feel free to leave a message below with any questions/comments, or chat with me on Facebook and Instagram!
