Save money turning an ordinary window blind or turn mini-blind into a decorator blind by attaching a few beads to the end of the draw strings. Use discarded beads from clothing or household items, or pick them up at thrift or hobby stores.

Frugal footnotes:

Here are some more frugal tips to save money on blinds.

 

- Avoid custom blinds.  They are costly.  Most stores will cut the width of blinds,
and you can make them shorter by removing some of the slats.
 
- Always keep blinds in neutral shades so you don't get tired of them.
 
- Plantation shutters are are classic and will last for years.  However, they are costly.  Depending on your situation, it might be worth the investment.
