hey there! I'm monica 

I pride myself on making amazing style and design accessible for everyone, regardless of location, budget, or ability! My design philosophy is rooted in authenticity + attainability - If I can do it, you can too! My work has been featured in countless publications, but I take the most pride in homeowners that have been personally inspired by my DIY ideas and have tried something in their own homes!

Do you check out the dollar bins at Target like I do?  Seriously, even if I’ve been there 24 hours before, I just HAVE to walk through those aisles and make sure there isn’t something new!
I was there with my daughter this week and we loved up the new Christmas items.  So, I thought it would be fun to share with you what we found and hear what you would use them for or how you could DIY them.  Next week I’ll share my ideas with you!
So here’s what we found for $1…
Little Pursey thing
Holiday boxes…
 Monogramed Notes…
Adorable boxes…
Letter Stickers…
Fall container
Love this! Gingerbread headband! lol… And felt bags…
Sparkly Boxes…
Okay, so what are your ideas?  Leave us some comments and/or pictures and we’ll share your ideas and ours next week!
P.S.  We’re headed back to NYC tomorrow to visit our bestie Nate! Hehe.

    I would put the boxes on the wall above a desk or counter and use them to store office supplies or kitchen utensils…or storing toys for my kids. I love those sparkly boxes! They make me think of Chinese takeout boxes 😀 I would use those for edible gifts like cookies and put liners in them and use them for leftovers-everyone I know sends leftovers to family and friends the week after each major holiday and those would be a great way to do that (and be pretty gifts)

  2. Holy Macaroni the dollar section of The Big T…. My love for this small corner of my favorite store is unwavering. Just this morning (after finding out yesterday that I waited too long to order them online using regular shipping and would have to shell out DOUBLE the shipping cost to get them here on time resulting in me opting NOT to buy them) I found 14 wooden train whistles sitting there, at a buck a piece, just waiting for me to snatch them up for our Vintage Train party next weekend! AAAAAAaaahhhhhH! I am sure that anyone even remotely close to me who heard my squeel of excitement thinks I am nuts, but I could not contain it!

    That dollar section is a cheap little miracle.

    I HATE cutting wrapping paper. You know, those ginormous tall rolls you have when you want to wrap a small gift? So I LOVE the little rolls that they have in the dollar section! They are shorter than the regular ones, but still have a LOT of wrapping paper on them. I have bought about 30 of them, and they are all I use now! 🙂 The only downside is that some of the are thinner and tend to rip, so you have to try to find the thicker ones….LOVE that dollar section!

  4. I can’t tell you any ideas because I get all my ideas from you 2.

    I find the best stuff there 🙂
    especially like it when they do the 12 sheet of scrapping paper for $1

    those cute boxes would make really cute trash cans in a kids room! Those $1 bins are always the best! Today’s my first time checking out your blog, it’s great ladies!!

    Ha! Chrissie – I second that. I was thinking, “Just tell us already!” 🙂
