I often hear people say that they don’t decorate for holidays simply because it’s too expensive or they don’t have anywhere to store it…and so on. So, I thought I’d do a little post on that. A little..reality check, if you will.
It’s always good to shop the house, as well. The glitter skull below was a birthday present to my son. It happened to come up “missing” from his room the other day. Remember the glass orbs I bought some time ago? Perfect there.
Another piece of advice? Buy stuff on clearance after the holiday. Then put it away for the year and completely forget that you had it when you take it out. The tins above were marked down to .99 cents. That’s cheaper than the dollar store!
Something else you may notice is that I like to decorate for holidays with things that aren’t really meant for the holidays. Am I making sense? The “31” above is .99 cent numbers I bought at my scrapbooking store. Stick ‘em on a clearance frame and call it good.
Just so you understand how things work at this house…
As I was going through my pictures to pick which ones to post on here, my husband leaned over and said, “Whose house is that?” Nice.
