Another popular hack in the Kmart & The Warehouse Hacks & Decor group is to turn a $ 22 Kmart towel rack sideways or upside down to use as a firewood rack.
Tauranga’s wife Jenner Ballinger-Judd echoed the idea of ââstoring firewood, posting, âIt’s so good. The rack holds so much firewood, looks tidy, and is easy to access. Like! Thank you for bringing this into my life. “
Peck says she started the group “to get some ideas, show off what’s new in Kmart and The Warehouse, decorating ideas and hacks.”
âI was a single mother. I have twins (8 years old) and the original idea was to try to find some tips to use their bedroom space affordably, âshe says.
Peck, who rents in Flat Bush in east Auckland, says she takes great pride in her home, but needs less expensive solutions to save space and build homes.
âMy home is Kmart and The Warehouse through and through. Having small children, when they have their friends around, you don’t have to worry about a $ 500 vase that you have sitting there. It’s $ 20. “
Peck has three friends who help him pre-approve and moderate posts, and approve new members. âRight now we’re sitting around 1,000 to 1,500 new member requests per day. It’s really huge.
Bowden said membership in Kmart Mums NZ has grown steadily over the years. She said that she herself lives near three Kmarts: “fortunately”.
The group is not just for mothers. âIt’s open to everyone. Everyone loves Kmart. It’s a great sense of community, of people helping each other. “
Mother of three Tracey Atkin says she loves seeing other people’s purchases and ideas.
âPersonally, I like to mix affordable and more upscale pieces in my style,â she says. Atkin also shares his interior style on his Instagram account.
Aucklander Orlando Lee said he joined the group to find products he would not have otherwise known about “or would not have noticed even if I saw them on the shelves in stores.”
âMy wife and I also love to watch home improvement shows, so getting ideas from the group that we can apply to our home makes us happy.â
Lee recently shared his first post, a photo wall project using $ 8 frames and Command frame hooks ($ 14 for three) from The Warehouse.
Lee cost the project $ 150, including printing photos.
“I decided to share this post because I was thinking of something that required basic tools and relatively inexpensive materials, the idea can make a big improvement in your home and it was worth sharing” , did he declare.
