You do not have to spend a fortune to create the home of your dreams. 

With a little creativity and smart thinking, you can brighten up any dreary home. Here are four budget-friendly ways to lighten up any dingy home:


Brighten with White

Rooms painted and decorated in light colors will appear brighter than the same space that is outfitted with dark colors and fixtures. White is the best choice of color when looking to make your house look less dingy. This non-hue does not absorb color, meaning that it sends light bouncing back to other surfaces. This scattering of light makes any room feel brighter and airier.

Touch Up Your Windows

The windows are the source of light for your home. Thus, it makes sense that they need to be clean and free of debris so that light can filter in at maximum effectiveness. The material and style of your frames also make a big difference in how much light makes it through. In addition to giving your windows regular cleanings, be sure to pay attention to the color of the frames and the window dressings. Lighter colored frames will reflect light more naturally and brighten the entire room while breezy curtains will create a softer effect in the space.

Mirror Mirror on the Wall

The old trick of adding mirrors to a room to make it look brighter and bigger truly works. You can double the amount of sunlight that streams into a room by hanging mirrors that reflect light. Strategically hanging a large mirror directly across from a big window will yield the most effective brightening results. Or try a small collection of mirrors in different sizes to lighten a dark and dingy staircase. The good thing about mirrors is while there are some more expensive ones out there, there are also lots of mirrors you can buy that are pretty cheap.

Update Light Bulbs

The bulbs in your lighting fixtures can play a big role in how bright a room appears. LED bulbs with a brighter output will instantly brighten a room. A cooler daylight color of bulb can transform a room from dark and grey to light and cheery. A true white bulb will deliver the most brightness.

You do not have to live with a dark and dingy home. The right color palette and decor items can turn any dreary space into something that sparkles and shines with brightness. By getting creative, you can design this look on any budget.

Best Practices When Shopping Online

The internet has changed the way people shop for goods and services. When you buy online, you don't have to spend time and fuel driving to stores, and you get to skip the tedious process of standing in line. However, shopping online doesn't come without risks. Educate yourself about ways to stay safe when buying online and save some money along the way, too. Take a look at these tips for making the most of your purchasing adventures.

Find Deals
The internet is home to a vast array of online sellers. From retail hubs to auction sites, there are countless deals available. Money Connexion says not to hurt your bank account by buying the first listing of an item you see; unless the inventory is low, the merchandise won't sell out quickly. Look for the same or equivalent items on other sites and compare prices. Check to see if coupons exist for the product or service you want to buy. Services offering online coupons and discount codes make saving money more accessible to everyone. Taking these steps can make online shopping a lot less costly.

Verify the Product
Sadly, not every online merchant is honest. The sale of counterfeit merchandise is still a troubling problem. Surprisingly, fake Disney tickets are one of the most scammed items. The good news is that it's easy to avoid buying counterfeit tickets when you know what to look out for. One big red flag is a price that's too good to be true. Disney never offers steep discounts on their tickets. You can sometimes find 10% off, but if you see a "deal" for 50% or more off the price of Disney tickets, it's probably a scam.

Also, be careful about where you buy tickets. Park Savers warns that websites like eBay, Craigslist or other classified websites, and stands or in-person meetings should be avoided at all cost. There is absolutely no way to verify the authenticity of a ticket through these options. Purchasing a ticket from a stranger you don't know online and hoping it will work out at the parks adds a lot of unnecessary stress to a person's vacation.

Read Customer Reviews
The Drum says that customer reviews can actually tell you a lot about a specific product and the merchant making the sale. Customers report on the quality of the product, which is essential. They also mention details about shipping, customer service, returns and more. You can avoid unpleasant surprises when you buy from a seller that has a good track record with customers.

You can take full advantage of your online shopping experience when you follow smart practices like these. Don’t forget to browse through these Krazy Deal Daze couponing basics before starting your shopping spree!

June Shopping Guide 2019


Check out all the Krazy Deals we found for June 2019.

This post contains paid affiliate links, please read our Advertising Disclosure Statement




Did you know that June is the third month of the year with less than 31 days?

Although June may be one of the shorter months of the year, its supply of shopping events and promotions is far from lacking.

It is said that June is the perfect time to stock up on undergarments. This in part is thanks to Victoria’s Secret who is known to host one of its famed Semi-Annual Sales in June. Be on the lookout for other retailers who are sure to offer equally competitive sales in their undergarments department.

You may also consider buying a gym membership during the summer, this may be because the hype of the New Year’s resolutions are dwindling and people who signed up as part of their resolutions have since canceled their memberships... Or gyms realize it’s starting to get a little hot out there, here in the Northern Hemisphere. This may deter some from being active outside and they are looking for cooler places to get their workouts in. Regardless of why, the fact remains, Gyms seem to be more eager for sign-ups at this time. So look for those offering deals and discounts on their memberships.

Did you know in the United States, Flag Day is June 14th? Flag Day honors and commemorates the adoption of the flag of the United States which occurred on June 14th, 1777. Some states provide a sales tax exemption for flag purchases on Flag Day. Also, retailers in the past have been known to offer Flag Day deals and even Flag Day sidewalk sales. So be on the lookout for those on Thursday, June 14th, 2019.

Father’s Day is Sunday, June 16th, 2019. Father’s Day commemorates fatherhood and gives us all a chance to celebrate and appreciate all fathers and father-figures including grandfathers, great-grandfathers, stepfathers, foster fathers…etc. Like Mother’s Day retailers offer an abundance of deals and specialty gifts just for dad! 


Lastly, we have the first day of summer known as the Summer Solstice on Thursday, June 21st, 2019! You know what that means? Summer Sales GALORE!!

Please be sure to pay attention to the Good Through Dates that have been included with each deal posted.
