Some things are worth the splurge: a quality sofa, a mattress, a spacious dining table. But sometimes you just want to give your space a quick and easy upgrade without spending all your hard-earned dollars or bringing in a large piece of furniture with white-glove delivery. There's no harm in throwing a little cash at trendy accessories seasonally to keep your home feeling fresh and new, as long as you follow the 80/20 rule.
In fashion, the 80/20 rule dictates that you should spend 80% of your budget on investment pieces and 20% on small accessories. In décor it works very much the same way. Divide whatever you'd spend on a sofa by four and get shopping for small accessories: a catchall to throw your keys in, a cozy throw, or a pretty vase. To make this process easier, we've handpicked the 18 cheap fall home décor items we'd purchase this season. Best of all: They're all under $100.
A Chic Catchall
A strategically placed catchall makes everything a little more organized.
This footed bowl would be perfect to catch keys in the entryway or jewelry in the bedroom.
There's nothing like a pillow upgrade to make a home autumn-ready.

A Fun Planter
When temperatures drop, bring your greenery indoors with a colorful planter like this one from IKEA.
Or try this elephant wicker planter from Urban Outfitters for a fun lighthearted look.
A Luxe Throw
Nothing says comfort like a soft and cozy off-white throw.
For something a little more graphic, we love this striped jacquard throw from H&M Home.

Arrange your overflow of winter throws on this clever ladder from Umbra.
