Frugal Way To Hang Curtains

I was at Home Depot with a friend today and I found a less expensive solution for hanging curtains. While in the plumbing aisle, I spotted some Copper Plated, Galvanized and PVC 2-Hole Clips in various sizes. I realized that instead of spending the usual $5+ in my local closeout store on each set of curtain rods, I could screw 2 of those clips above my windows and then just buy dowels (or pvc piping) to hang my curtains from. My friend thought it was a good idea so I thought I'd share it here.

I found that tablecloths work great as curtains. In the window covering department, you can find clips that you can use to hang the tablecloths from the curtain rod. You can get the extra long tablecloths for an elegant look and still pay less than you would for a smaller size curtain. (07/25/2007)

So right you are about using tablecloths as curtains! I just found 2 very nice extra long off-white linen tablecloths for $2 each and hung them up with those clips (2 packs were on clearance for $2.50 each). They look fabulous since they really let the sunlight in. I previously paid $8-12 for curtain sets... it's a major savings! (07/29/2007)
