Overhauling your home on a budget? These highstreet items are just €50 or less

Doing it on a shoestring.

IT’S NOT UNUSUAL to find yourself critiquing the place you call home as soon as the New Year rolls in.

In the absence of a Christmas tree and various other festive decorations, your home can look somewhat bare all of a sudden, and it’s not long before you start spotting areas that are in need of a little rejuvenation.

As a result, January is often the time we begin considering giving the space we live a little overhaul, just in time for Spring.

With that in mind, we’ve picked our favourite highstreet pieces that will give your home a post-Christmas pick-me-up.

And yes, we definitely did it with a January budget in mind.
