Coming home from a long day should be like a warm and comforting hug, shouldn’t it? Likewise, if you work from home, you should be surrounded by soothing accents and cozy decor that make your job so much more enjoyable. And creating that perfect dream of a space shouldn’t be expensive (it isn’t on Amazon). Whether you love sitting tucked up on the couch with a favorite blanket or if your idea of relaxation is a perfect lighting scheme, setting up a home that’s super cozy and inviting is the goal. That’s why I head to Amazon when my need to cozy up my space outweighs my bank account. There, you can find lighting, decorations, and comfort items to make your home 10 times cozier for cheap.

When I say cheap, I don’t mean these things are lacking in quality — and you even have hundreds of reviews to peruse before you take the plunge. On Amazon, you can find sets of artificial potted plants to liven up your living room for less than a third of the cost of a single plant at well-known craft stores. My personal favorites are satin pillowcases that are just as soft as ones that cost a paycheck (these are just $9 and come in a bunch of upscale colors).

Read on as I share my top ways to instantly make your home 10 times cozier for cheap.
