The Challenge

We here at Pink Verbena believe that buying basic decor and other items for the home should never put you in serious debt. We thought long and hard about ways we could inspire our readers to shop for everyday bargains without breaking the bank. So, we teamed up with one of our favorite DIY bloggers, Megan Kinney, creator of A Load of Craft, to see just how far a dollar could go. We armed Megan with $50 and challenged her to shop for as many items for the home as possible. We’re calling this, The Pink Verbena $50 Challenge!screenshot-2016-09-14-at-1-32-55-pm

Hauling It In

Once Megan completed her shopping, we headed over to her home and filmed a haul video. There, Megan shows off the amazing deals she scored from retailers like Walmart and the Dollar Tree. We were seriously amazed by how much she was able to buy with $50.

DIY to Stretch Your Dollars

The chief reason why we teamed up with Megan was because she is a wiz at DIY projects and crafting. She can see an item’s potential where others don’t. She truly has a gift. With the challenge we wanted to show how easy and fun it is to hunt for hidden treasures and make them your own. Below, is just a snapshot of one of Megan’s DIY projects. You can find the details about this and much more over on her blog, A Load of Craft.
