Way back in May, I decided to add a couple photos to the family room at the same time that I was working on a family photo collage for the foyer. Well, that collage turned out to be an epic fail! I absolutely hated it and took everything down. The frames seemed too small, and there were too many different colors for me. Here’s how it looked.
I’ve been getting various offers from Shutterfly since I created baby registries and signed up for formula coupons. Companies just love to give you free products, offers, and coupons when you’re expecting! 🙂 I had a $20 Shutterfly gift card that came with my Babies R Us registry gift bag, a free shipping offer from Stonyfield, and a 40% off everything coupon code that I shared a couple weeks ago on my Facebook page (I frequently share coupon codes and special offers there, so you may want to check it out). So, all I had to do was figure out what I could order for free or next to nothing.
I found this Decorative Wall Decal that I had admired before we moved. It’s a decent size (30×22) and I love the fact that it can be customized like Shutterfly’s other products, including this pillow I made for 99 cents.
The discounted price, after taking 40% off the original price of $29.99, came to $17.99. That wasn’t enough to use my $20 gift card, so I threw in this magnet.
Here’s the break down of what I actually spent.
The Shutterfly decal became the start of the photo collage on the foyer wall. We added 2 new frames that were BOGO free for Target’s Black Friday sale along with an old one I had.
We’ll continue to add more to this collage, as I dig more frames out of the garage and replace some of the older photos. But thanks to Shutterfly and spending less than $2 on a decal (and magnet), we have a pretty good start!
