Fall Into August
Updated: Jan 22, 2021
It's August and it is officially fall! Well, at least in my home.
Living in Florida has its perks - beaches, sunshine, beautiful rainy days, theme parks, and so much more. But, like with everything else, it has its not-so-fun things like, humidity for what seems like is ALL THE TIME, the leaves do not change in color, you sweat on Halloween, and Florida just simply refuses to give us fall lovers, the true feeling of the season. So what do you do when you cannot have the season you want, when you want it? You create it for yourself at home!
Yesterday, my local Target began putting out their fall decor in their dollar section which, I believe is always located at the front of all Target stores. If you aren't familiar with dollar section, this is the area where seasonal items such as holiday, back-to-school, and various seasonal items are sold for usually between $1 to $5. I don't believe I've ever come across anything that is over $5, but let me know if you have. The point is, that this section of the store, lends itself to offer the cutest of things, at a very low investment thus, allowing you to stretch your dollar even further than you would say at other retail stores that carry similar items.
Photographed above, are the things I just had to have. Excluding the Yankee Candle (I already owned that), I spent $28.00 on six items.
"Welcome Autumn" signage $5.00
Stack of wooden faux books $3.00
Light blue plaid table runner $5.00
Travel mug $5.00
Deep blue and green scarf $5.00
"Welcome" throw-pillow $5.00
