cIf you love tiered trays and you cannot lie, then you probably like to change out your tray for every season and holiday, which means you're gonna need accessories to fill up your tray,
The question is how do you do this without breaking the budget.
This week's hack is super simple.... Be on the lookout for essential pieces that can be used year round in the seasonal and holiday sections in your local home decor and craft stores.
1, Be on the lookout for colors that can be used for different seasons.
For example a red truck can be used for Christmas, Valentines Day, and Fall
2, Be on the lookout for signs with wording that can be used for all occasions
Ex. Words like Home, Blessed, Thankful, Family, Love can be used in everyday decor as well as holiday and seasonal decor
3. Look for pieces with neutral colors.
Neutral colored pieces can be added into almost any tray set, But these pieces can also be painted or you can add a little DIY magic to transform them
Check out this 3 part video series I did while doing a little fall shopping at Hobby Lobby to get your brain going on potential finds that can be used all year long.
Let me know if you spot other items like these in your favorite store.

4. Self Care
Who has time to go to a spa, not this mama. Whether your kids are little or older they need your attention all the time. Remember that old saying that you can't take care of anybody if you don't take care of yourself first. That is so true. So take time for you with maybe a wine and chill night or grab a long bath with a bath bomb and candle going for ambiance. These are some of my favorite self care items you absolutely need.

1. Plan Your Year
Planner's and Journals are a good way to stay on track of your goals
2.Choose a Word of the Year
Many people choose one little word to help guide them throughout the year.
I usually try to think of a word that is related to my goals for the year.
Here are a few ideas to help you brainstorm your word.
Once you select your word put in places where you will be able to see it and remember it.
3. Create Healthy Habits and not resolutions
4. Take Care of You this Year
Check out Our TShirt Collection.
After you put up all the lights, take down the tree, and tuck everything into it's spot in the attic, things sort of look a little empty,. right.
Christmas is such a wonderful time of the year. But I am hear to tell you that we are about to enter the next best thing.
I am officially calling that awkward time between Christmas and Spring, the most coziest time of the year.
Why? It's chilly outside, the snow is falling, things are slowing down. I'm here to tell you my favorite ideas for making your home look and feel cozy and transition from Christmas to winter.

1. Bring the Outside In
Now, I'm not talking about bringing the snow inside. What I am saying is to bring the colors that show up in your winter landscape outside inside of your home.
The first step is to go through your Christmas Decor and get rid of anything that screams Christmas like reds, santa, etc.
Switch them out with colors like white, browns, blues will help you transition from Christmas to Winter.
What do you think about this color palette.
2. Neutrals and Classic Designs are your friend
After Christmas I love to bring out my neutral every day decor and mix it in with my winter decor. I love neutrals because they are great filler for when you just don't know what to put out.
Monograms are also great to bring out after Christmas to add in to your winter Decor
3. Let's Get Cozy
When it's cold outside, what's the first thing you want to do. Curl up with a blanket right.
Here's a tip, go your favorite store like Walmart or Target and check the clearance section. I found a buffalo plaid blanket that was in the Christmas collection marked down for Christmas Clearance for only $15. I also found a burgundy blanket on clearance for $8.75. Blankets are good to drape across a chair or bed. I also think blanket ladders are really trendy, they are practical and they can add dimension to an empty space.
Here's a really nice one that's under $30
Another option is to change up your sofa by adding in pillows. Have you heard of pillow cover inserts.
These are basically pillow covers that you can change out at any time and change up your decor.
Here is one of my favorites.
