Our First Home: An Inexpensive Lighting Upgrade

This post may contain affiliate links or banners, but all opinions are my own. Read my full disclosure statement here.

Since we moved into our home in 2014, we've been making upgrades to bring a house built in 1978 into the 21st century.

We don't always have the money to work on big tasks like re-doing our bathroom or completely ripping up the landscaping, so over the years we've been making small upgrades.

Here's my secret - I keep a running list of things in our home that need to be done or upgraded. Every week, I browse the flyers and surf my favourite websites for deals. I never stop. Chris and I pre-discuss exactly what we want so that when an item goes on sale, I can grab it without hesitating.

There is no particular order in which these list items need to be done/purchased. What gets done depends on what type of deals pop up.

Check out our latest upgrade below:

A few months ago, I was doing my weekly wishlist check on Amazon and an amazing deal popped up! I found this light (regularly priced around $150) for under $50.

To be exact, I paid $44.05 for this 3 light chandelier. SO crazy!

When I continued to look, I found the 5 light version of this chandelier for $49.85 - an even better deal! Obviously, I scooped up both. My order total for both of these lights was $106. Woah!

Moral of the story is to never stop looking. I searched Amazon's lighting section for months before finding this deal, but it was so worth the wait.

We have yet to install the larger chandelier, but I know it's going to look amazing.
