It’s been about a month since I quite literally packed my whole life into three suitcases and boarded a plane to New York City without ever seeing my apartment in person. Coming from Florida, I had been spoiled by the spacious rooms and lower cost of living, so I was in for a major culture shock when I walked into my tiny apartment afraid of what it would cost to furnish my space. This move has been full of adjustments, but it’s not all bad. Downsizing has actually allowed me to be more creative and intentional when it comes to décor. The ultimate goal is to feel good about adding inexpensive and high-quality pieces that make my apartment appear bigger, feel cozier, and look fashionable.
With a growing NYC bucket list and a calendar full of coffee dates and dinner plans, I prefer to save money on home décor whenever I can. Gap Home is a new ultra-affordable home décor line that just launched exclusively at Walmart. Not to mention, the items in this collection are sustainably made and free of harmful chemicals, making everything just that more tempting to buy. From denim throw pillows to reversible comforter sets all under $100, this collection is bound to add a modern twist to my NYC apartment without hurting my wallet.
