1. Head for Barnes and Noble
Those cozy armchairs are beckoning, so grab an armful of decorating books and take a load off your feet. Flip through for ideas -- you don't need to buy the expensive stuff, but you may get some more cheap decorating tips on color and placement.
2. Antiques (or Almost Antiques)
You can find great stuff at flea markets, antique shops, and thrift stores if you keep your eyes open. Flea markets can be treasure troves for large furniture, while some thrift shops have kitchen sections. You can even find collectibles if you look hard. A shelf of bright Fiestaware will make your kitchen sparkle, even if you got it on the cheap.
Tip: Shop late in the day at flea markets, when vendors are willing to make deals so they won't have to cart stuff home. Don't be shy about bargaining -- everyone does it.
