    My favorite place to get supplies, always have and always will be Dollar Tree.
    The most expensive item on my altar would tie between my athame and my Goddess statue, both were $20. My altar I measured out, cut and built myself. Its easy to transport it since it is light, has 4 legs and room to store stuff underneath it, and just high enough to sit at on the floor. My cloth I got from Jo-ann fabrics discount bin, and everything else is dollar store, walmart, or garage sale.

    Re: The Budget Pagan

    I'm just starting out and I have very little to my altar. I would really like to keep it simple in the long run anyways.
    I got lucky for my athame. My husband had an old throwing dagger rusting away in the basement. I've cleaned it up really well. I plan to apply some type of protective coating and some very basic decor to make it my own before cleansing it.
    For statues, I have the skill and supplies to make my own when I eventually need them.
    I have little (brass, I think) bells that ended up in my possession during my life that I like to ring to attract good spirits before praying.
    My altar is an antique bedside table I've had since I was small.
    my offering bowls and cups are whatever ones I feel work. I just rub them with salt and water first.
    I have tealights and plan to buy some oils to rub on them before burning.
    I fortunately have a decent little collection of natural and polished stones from my childhood!

    Dang, I just realized how many of my supplies are from my youth before I even knew paganism wasn't completely comprised of evil virgin-chicken sacrifices to Satan, lol.

    anyways, I've seen someone use a bookshelf as an altar; each shelf being dedicated to something different and one used for storage.

    I have found that tomato sauce jars can be really pretty; if you look at the market, even the cheaper jars have some really nice patterns.

    I think milk jars that you find in the grocery are really pretty too.

    I'm going to agree with you. However, I have no choice but to get herbs at the shop, or on-line, because I don't have enough pots to grow all the herbs that I want.

    Re: The Budget Pagan

    If you can't afford herbs that a spell calls for, go out to the closest nature spot and hunt for them or substitutions. Most magic is sympathetic, don't feel like your herbs have to match what the spell calls for. So you can't afford lavender for a prosperity spell, but you're driving down the road and spot some wisteria? GRAB IT.

    Re: The Budget Pagan

    Wow, I'm so glad I found this thread! I've been reading through every post to get ideas on how to make MY altar. I have a teeny tiny apartment that is just one room (no bedroom) so I don't really have room for an altar of any decent size. Also, I have 2 cats... They get into anything they can.
    So after reading all of this, I went to the crafts store here and got a tiny wooden trinket box that I plan to decorate with my wood burning pen and filling it up with dried flower and rocks and any other interesting things I find in nature! Small and compact but lacks any tools. Which works for me as I wouldn't know how to use them anyways.
