This incredible budget-friendly tool gives renters the chance to make their home truly theirs during the holidays. Just remember to pick up a pack of command strips on your next trip to the store and save money on your security deposit.
Nails are not just for inside the house but outside as well. Do you want to hang holiday lights but you don’t want to use nails? Well here is a solution, light clips. These are plastic clips that you attach to your gutters and hang your lights from so you are still in the holiday spirit without the worry of damaging the exterior of your rental.
These can be found online or at any major store like Walmart, Fred Meyer, etc. Make sure you are using outdoor lights and LEDs to save you money when it comes to your electricity bill. And you get more bang for your buck because LED lights are known to last longer.
