Announcing #FamilyDollarHomeMakeover Challenge

Family Dollar Home Makeover Challenge

Thanks to Family Dollar for sponsoring About A Mom’s participation in the Home Makeover Challenge!

Laura and I have a super fun and exciting announcement to make. We’ll be participating in the Family Dollar Home Makeover Challenge starting very soon! We will be competing against 8 fabulously creative bloggers to see who can do the best room makeover with a budget of $50 at Family Dollar. I realize that $50 might not sound like a lot, but with the great selection and deals on home decor available at Family Dollar, along with a little creativity we hope to impress. Anyways, shouldn’t a challenge be a bit challenging after all?

We’re in luck, because Family Dollar has a 25% OFF Home Decor Sale that begins on January 26th. That means we’ll really be able to stretch our budget!

There are 2 things that I hope you’ll remember to do:

Take advantage of the great 25% savings on home decor at Family Dollar from January 26 through February 1, 2014.

Check back with us starting February 9 through February 28 to learn how to vote for your favorite home makeover. Of course, we hope that you’ll be voting for us!

Please wish us luck!
