Mary, from Slow This Ride Down, emailed me today about how they have furnished their home for next to nothing:
We just moved into a house after living overseas, we just came back with a few suitcases so owned NOTHING to put inside and didn’t want to spend anything.
Using Freecycle, thrift stores, and yard sales we filled our whole house with what we needed for pennies. I’m blogging all about how you don’t have to give in to consumerism and can live in a simple house just fine.
People try so hard to have a magazine perfect house, so I wanted to show that there are those of us out there whose house would never be featured for it’s amazing decor….but that the people living in it are still having a wonderful time! – Mary
You can check out Mary’s blog here where she shares details and pictures on their home furnishings, where they got it from and how much they paid for it. While the decor wasn’t exactly my style, I loved the philosophy behind why they are choosing to live like this. I think you’ll find it inspiring, too!
