1. $4 Mini Bouquet – Trader Joe’s

If you shop at Trader Joe’s, you already know they have a great selection of flowers, and they are such a steal! I almost always grab one of their mini bouquets while I’m there (only $3.99!) and they fit perfectly in my book vase without even needing a trim.


2. $5 Cute Glassware – Homegoods

We all need to stay hydrated, so why not make it fun? Pop over to Homegoods and check out what they have in stock in the kitchen section. I found these adorable textured glasses for only $5 each. At this price, I could afford to mix things up and get a few sets of different colors and styles.


3. $9 Gold Elephant Figurine – Amazon

I keep this playful elephant figurine on my desk, but he’d go great on a bookshelf, coffee table, even in the bathroom. His curious little trunk just cheers me right up! Also available in a mischievous stretching cat or an attentive, perky bunny.



4. $5 Faux Floral Arrangement with Vase – Target

This thing is so dang adorable and gives my bedroom an extra dose of coziness. To fill her out a bit more, I added 3 extra faux floral pieces. Sold separately at $1 each, the total price still came out to only $8.
