Redecorating the home can be an expensive pain in the butt. Sure, everything looks so perfect and pristine when it's organized in just the right way on my home board on The Prowl. However, getting those hypothetical couches and dreamy curtains into my apartment is NOT exactly easy.
After recently changing roommates, to say my place was in need of a style upgrade is an understatement. Roommate #1 left with all the living room and kitchen furniture, and all I was left with was the lingering worry that our mouse would come back from hiding. (Don't worry, he's been absent for the past three months.) Gotta love New York.
SO, it was time to open the wallet and get some new goodies. The good news? I was able to find pieces that added just the right amount of flair, are TOTALLY high-functioning, and ridiculously inexpensive. Check out 5 ways I spruced up my place without breaking the bank, here:

I am obsessed with this Threshold Slipper Chair from Target ($159.99, target.com). I knew I wanted to add an accent color to my living room, and figured a chair would be the perfect way to bring in the extra pop. My problem? Every chair I looked at originally cost upward of $299!
For $160, this chair is a steal and a super fun way to get creative. It makes the space more vibrant and is the first thing people compliment when they walk through our door.
