Kitchen Corner


School holidays here in NSW Australia is almost over.  Kids are back to school next week which includes my son.  It means that a parent like me has to prioritize school expenses.  In fact, just for a uniform top up and school shoes, I’ve already spent nearly $ 400.  Then, we still need to put an order for his own and new violin which can cost $350-$450. The most significant of all is the tuition fee which will amount to $ 7000 for the whole year.    With all these expenses, the last thing you want to do is to spend a lot for home decoration.  But I have to admit, the urge is just so great for me to decorate, to buy something new and to make out little kitchen corner more appealing.  Our kitchen cupboard welcomes our close friends who enter through the kitchen door instead of the lounge.  This is how it appeared before:

So I thought, it would be better if I make it welcoming and inviting.  Hence, I hurriedly went to the hot dollar shop to look for bargains.  After several minutes of going through lots of items, I decided to get an apple green plastic pots ( $2.00 each ) since I have two decors in the kitchen cupboard with the same color( see above picture).

Artificial plants

I found artificial plants from the same thrifty store and each plant cost $ 3.00 which I placed in the two green pots.   So to sum it up, I’ve spent $ 10.00 for my new decors and with this amount our kitchen cupboard now look like this

I’m so happy with the outcome of our kitchen corner and so is my son and my hubby who was surprised about the sudden change but was not shocked of the price since it is very inexpensive.  So there you go, my urge was satisfied without compromising our budget!!
