About Your Home Magazine

Having spent a pretty penny at Christmas and splashed out in the January sales, February is the month when we need to seriously tighten our purse strings. But just because you’re on a budget doesn’t mean you can’t have a stylish home. In this special money-saving issue we’ve got hundreds of great ideas and affordable buys to make your home look sensational. We’ve even got some great suggestions for renters, who are often limited when it comes to decorating their rooms (p.36). Is your bathroom looking a little drab at the moment? Turn to page 46 to discover some really purse-friendly buys to give it a facelift, while on page 52 we’ve got a host of clever ways to give your kitchen a makeover without breaking the bank. If you’re planning on tackling some bigger home improvements this year, then take a look at page 106, where we give you the low-down on how to cut the cost of your projects. Even our craft projects have a moneysaving spin to them this month. From using up fabric scraps to re-purposing old magazines, you’ll love our creative upcycling ideas. If you just can’t resist a cheeky takeaway on a Friday night, then check out our fab cost-effective fakeaways on page 100. They’re delish! Finally, don’t forget to look out for our shopping bag logos throughout the magazine to discover our favourite bargain buys and money-saving tricks.
