Title: Where to get cheap mini blinds
Post by: Stachetastic on May 23, 2017, 07:33:17 AM
I have a rental that has plain white mini blinds on most of the windows. I used to source these from Big Lots, but our local store stopped carrying them. Any suggestions on where to get some? I'd like to keep the cost down since they frequently get damaged, but prefer to provide them to avoid the place looking vacant between tenants, and to also create a uniform look from the outside.

Home Depot and Lowes both have super cheap plastic mini-blinds. Walmart might as well.

We got some very nice looking faux wood blinds for pretty cheap on Blinds to Go. I'm not sure how the price compare to other cheap retailers though.

Thanks all! I didn't even think of Wal Mart!

Interesting. My wife is looking for these now. Friend of mine got 10 sets of real wood blinds from an estate sale for $250. That sounds high to me but apparently it's an amazing deal. I'll look into blinds to go for the faux wood and real wood blinds.
