How to Hit the Jackpot When You Need New Home Decor

Support Our Farm & Share


Decorating my home is one of my favorite things to do. When I find home decor on clearance I’ve hit the jackpot! None of us want to go broke decorating our homes. When the urge strikes next time be prepared to spend half of what you normally spend with my tried and true tips.

Home decor shopping was my weakness when it came to living a debt free life. As much as I love a good deal, I was loving a good deal even if I couldn’t put it anywhere in our house.

Once I got serious and realized some of my emotional spending was to do with self awareness I stopped.

If you are feeling the itch to go out and get a new item for your home tell yourself before you leave, you may come home empty handed.

I started holding the item and asking myself where do I see it in my home? If I can’t see a physical spot for it to be used in my house I pass it up. Even if it’s 90% off. Well, almost! We are all a work in progress 😉

Then my weakness comes in I’ll donate it, or give it to a friend. There’s a fine line there too right?! I know I’m not the only one who finds her feet heavy when she walks away from a fantastic home decor deal.

Let’s get to it!

The Best Tip to Get Cheap Home Decor

If you really want to maximize your clearance savings always shop out of season. This means when Christmas suddenly comes up, you do not head out to Target and get the sale Christmas items. Let’s say you shop after Christmas clearance. You come across a great set or ornaments. Do not open those. Put them right down with your Christmas items in the basement/attic etc.

Next year when the holiday rolls around you find something new unopened and it brings excitement. It’s worth the wait.

If you are a BJs shopper I have the whole list of items that go on clearance and season times here.

Change How You Shop School Supplies

If you can wait until September to buy bit ticket school supplies DO IT. I avoid buying anything like backpacks, lunch boxes, laptops etc until September. At this point these big ticket items are being clearance out. Only grab the basics like pencils, crayons, notebooks in July and August.

If you need an idea of when school supplies are at their lowest price point download our free list here.

Don’t let the kids beg you for that full price backpack. Let them know how important and why you want to save money by waiting a week. This is a great opportunity to teach your kids about managing money.

The Best Places for Clearance Home Decor Are:

Big Lots– Don’t underestimate the power of this store. They change out home decor items frequently. Sign up for the rewards program. Right now new members get $5 off a $15 purchase!

Target After every seasonal switch the clearance is 70% off or more. You will need to act fast at this store. Once it hit 70% off it goes quick. If you get a Target Redcard debit card you save 5% off. And don’t forget Target Cartwheel!

Tractor Supply– With their new line by Trisha Yearwood fresh items come in each season. A few times now I’ve been excited to see clearance potters and at the register they deduct MORE! Always ask if something is marked down what the actual price is if it doesn’t fall into your budget.

Marshalls/TJMaxx- Yes they have clearance! Look to those back endcaps!

Tops Markets the seasonal section. Or you can insert your local grocery store here. Tops is my favorite one to find deals.

Dollar General– if you have a nicer one this can be a big hit. The original price of items at this store are already cheap. When you top it with 75% off you walk out with almost free stuff.

Home Goods– Like Marshall’s and TJmaxx but this one is ALL home decor items.

BJ’s Wholesale Club- Of course I have this one on here. The clearance is what drew me in to shop more frequently at BJs. In our small town we have a small BJs club and it’s a goldmine for clearance.

Costco- With my recent membership I’m finding this club has plenty of clearance items too. Always wait after something hits the shelves to see how it sells. It’s worth the low price they put items too when it doesn’t sell right away.
