Tip # 4
Take Your Time!
I know its hard, but it really is best. Too many times I have bought what I thought was the perfect piece to build a room around and ended up not using it. Now, I take pictures on my phone of stuff I love and put my room together using those pictures. This way, I don't make any impulse buys and I buy only what I am actually going to use. It has saved me so much money, but it does take time! I promise it will be worth it in the end!
