A Brief Blog Profile: Thrifty Decor Chick

by Thomas Hynes


The Thrifty Decor Chick also goes by Sarah. She's a married mom who loves New York City. She also loves decorating her house on the cheap. You get the sense she derives satisfaction from pulling off a $200 project for $20. (Wouldn't you, too?) She recognizes the virtue of Goodwill and the Salvation Army as a means to a fuller, richer and more expressive living space. She started this blog because she believes that 'anyone and everyone should have a home they love, even though they may not have much to spend on it.'

If I can be totally honest here, I'm pretty enamored with the Thrifty Decor Chick. This may seem off-topic, but I love how she has a music player at the bottom of her page,. More specifically, I love that LL Cool J's "Around the Way Girl" is featured there. I also really love how much she loves candy corn.  She not only made humongous candy corn pieces out of yarn, but she also made a wreath out of real candy corn!

But enough about wax candies and rappers from the 90s. For the purposes of this blog post, I should also mention that she's pretty talented at design. This post on her new backyard is a pretty good place to begin showcasing her skills. Truthfully, the entire blog is an example of her abilities. As she says, "You can have a lovely home for little money. Don't let anyone tell you otherwise." After reading her blog a little bit, I think she may be right. 

Reader's Comments


I feel the same way. I don't have the same style as Sara but she has inspired me to take on some DIY projects and they've turned out great.

Any content creator -- whether you're a journalist, freelancer or blogger -- can set up a customized profile to receive releases based on preferences. You also have access to hi-res photos, media-only content such as media advisories and embargoed releases, and experts via ProfNet.

ProfNet Connect

ProfNet Connect is a free, interactive online community where PR professionals, experts, and media professionals can network and engage with one another. Via profiles, forums and blogs, subject-matter experts can position themselves as the go-to source for content creators and journalists. In turn, content creators can search the site by keyword to find the experts they need. The site also features enhanced profile capabilities, allowing users to easily add multimedia components -- photos, videos, white papers and more -- to their profiles.

News Widget

Our widget allows you to display PR Newswire content on your site with very little back-end programming required.  You not only get the headline, but also the body of text of the news release, keeping the user on your site at all times.  In order to do so, the difference between our Widget and other widgets is at the end of the sign-up process, you will be provided with two pieces of source code -- one for the page where the Widget itself will be displayed and one for the pages that will display the body of text of each news release.  In addition, the sign-up process allows you to have 100 percent control over every aspect of the Widget's appearance, so that the Widget can blend in fully with the look and feel of your site. Still not convinced? Here's what one blogger had to say about the widget.
