Q: For those of us who rent houses, any suggestions on inexpensive ways to spruce up or personalize a house? I’m looking for ideas that are not permanent, but still make the place feel like home. A: Invest in something you love, but that you can take with you when you leave your rental. Art is the best way, and you can find tons of beautiful, inexpensive art on sites like eBay or etsy.com, or splurge on one piece you’ll keep forever. If your landlord allows it, paint is always a quick and easy way to revamp a space and make it your own.
