Link of the week: Spruce up your home on the cheap

One of the tips I brought up in Wednesday’s post about spring cleaning was that making your home more inviting can help you resist the urge to get out. For my family, finding ways to make ours more livable is even more paramount: We feel like we’re outgrowing our space, and we plan to buy a bigger place, but we know we’ve got to make our smallish condo work for us at least three or four more years.

If you’re facing a similar need, you might need to do more than just clean and declutter. If so, these tips from might help. We’ve done most of these at one point or another during the past couple years. It’s still not an ideal place for us, but we’re making it work.
