25. Buy a Bouquet of Fresh Flowers for an Instant Pop of Color

One of the easiest ways to  freshen up your home is to buy a bouquet of cut flowers. These can cost as little as $5 from a local farmer, or $10 from a grocery store. Some people brush this off as a totally unnecessary expense. However, when you think about how many snacks or coffee you buy unnecessarily, the cost of fresh flowers could easily fit into the average family budget. I just started getting into the habit of buying fresh flowers once a week this year, and it has made a huge difference in how we feel when we walk through the front door. I love the fact that as time goes on, new flowers come into season. It almost feels like a decoration celebrating that moment in time, even if it’s not a holiday.
