Whether you’re looking for a way to freshen up your space or autumn is your favourite time of the year, decorating your home with autumnal bits and pieces can often become costly. That’s why I’ve compiled an abundance of affordable decorations and what you can do with them, so you can get the most out of your space during the cosy months ahead. 

As a general rule of thumb, it’s best to do your autumnal shopping earlier rather than later. Typically, July and August are when retailers and stores bring out their autumnal stock - and it doesn’t take long for it to be gone. By September, Christmas stock starts to make an appearance, so don’t wait around.

I’m Layla, the home and garden editor, and I started working at MyVoucherCodes in November 2022. I have always loved to write, especially after getting my degree in English Literature and Creative Writing, and since getting my own place, I’ve gotten stuck into all things home and garden.

When I’m not writing about saving money on homely purchases, I’m either sitting with my head in a new book, painting a piece of art for my walls, or binge-watching an interior design programme on Netflix. I love to get inspiration and transform my space, usually with the help of a few Pinterest boards and a couple of tins of paint.
