Fall Decor with Zero budget!



Don't you just love the colors of Fall! The earthy tans and browns the golden hues of leaves, & of course pumpkin orange.  Fall is one of my favorite seasons.

I love to decorate for Fall but purchasing anything is just not always in the budget. I have the same decor I'v had for the past 6 or 7 years. I wanted something different, so I had to get creative.

My girls drink hot tea occasionally! So we have a tea set. It has been taking up one end of the counter and I knew I needed to work it into the Fall decor but I was tired of looking at it. So I had to figure out how to get a cozy fall look while still using the tea set. Also by spending no money at all.

I already had everything in the picture. The half gallon mason jar in the back is rice. That is how I store my rice. Then the quart jars are pear jam that I canned about a month ago. The tea set and some old books from our bookshelf. The whole fruit is pears that I still need to put up. I still have a bucket and a half. Yeah this is real life!
I already had the fall leaves and pumpkins and the dry erase is a picture frame with a piece of scrapbook paper cut to fit inside.
  I wish I had thought to take a before picture.
 So how do you decorate and spend little to no money at all?



 I started playing with the settings on my phone. I thought I'd share these with you just for fun!

Update on Dish Washer Tabs (Don't Waste Your Time)

I just wanted to give an update on the dishwasher tabs that I posted about. These looked like they turned out great. They actually didn't work at all. My dishes were not clean and the tabs ended up leaving a powdery fill all over every single dish and all inside the dishwasher. I ended up having to just had wash for a couple months and ended up finally buying dish washer tabs from the store. I don't know how they worked so great for the other blogger but they didn't work for me. So don't waste your time!
