ok so this is my first apartment (since i became a mommy). my sister need help getting on her feet so i took that opportunity to save up some money. we rented a house together. well the year was up so a got a small 2 bed room apartment. the walls are bare! we will only be here for one or two years and i NEED HELP! i dont want to spend a lot we just found out we are expecting #2 :). but money is ok. any advice is welcome i am embarrassed of my apartment it looks horrible also the furniture came with the house and my dd'd bed room looks soooo bad! i am too embarrassed to put up picks but if you all need them i guess i will. i wasn't going to set up for the baby for about 3 months but maybe i should just start now?

Family pics is a great way to make your house feel like a "home." Or art work from you little one, if she is old enough.  But yeah pics would help.  Good luck.

 Check out craft stores, dlooar stores, and value stores for cheao decor, curtains etc...  If you have an IKEA close by, they have a lot of great things at great prices.  I look through magazines or furniture stores for ideas, then find cheaper ways to achieve the same look.

Thrift stores are good for decor. If you have a Ross around you, they have some decent decor for cheap.

My living room walls have mostly family pictures or different pictures o the boys. I'd check out goodwill, thrift shops or dollar store for cheap. Pick out a theme for a certain room then go with it. This has helped me decorate my house. And most of my stuff is from thrift stores, clerance isles or dollar store.

 Ross is a great store! When we first bought our house with depostis and buying a fridge money was ok but tight. I decorated my living room kitchen and front bathroom for right about $200!

Are you allowed to paint or not? Sometimes you are with apartments and sometimes you arent. Paint makes the BIGGEST difference..bigger than anything else I can think of. What about some removable wall sticks for DD's room??
