I love pillows but to buy them brand new at the store can be pretty expensive. If you're not picky about your pillows, you can pick them up at rummage sales and thrift stores.
As I was unpacking from this most recent move, I realized I had an overabundance of pillow cases and blankets. These were things I'd picked up cheap at those same rummage sales over the years, or had been given by friends and family. Since I didn't need all the blankets, I folded them up and stuffed them into the pillow cases to make extra pillows. It's a really simple idea that I'm sure other people have done, but I thought it was a pretty neat and cheap way to add pillows and decor to a bedroom.
