'Tis the season to stock up on all things pumpkin, pinecones and maple for your home. It’s easy to get carried away with all the fresh fall finds popping up online, but we’re here to prove that you can outfit your home for the season without dipping into your retirement fund. (Please don't do that!)

The secret to adding autumnal flair to your home without breaking the bank is investing in items that enhance the focal point of your room, like a seasonal dishtowel to hang front-and-center on your stove front throughout fall.

Another approach? Buy neutral, understated fall decor that transitions you into the winter months with ease. Natural elements like pinecones, bare branches, white berry sprays or magnolia leaves check out there.

Save your money for something special, and usher autumn cheer into your home with our budget-friendly decorations that look way more expensive than they actually are.

From $29.50
