3 tips to go big and save big on holiday décor


(NC) Transforming your home into a winter wonderland can be an exciting time for the whole family. Filling your living room with festive knick-knacks, showering the outside of your house and trees with lights – it’s enough to give anyone that fuzzy, warm feeling inside.

Although holiday decorating can be exciting, the bills that come along with your efforts can be a rude awakening come January. Use these simple tips to make the most of your decorations this year, without the sticker shock.

  1. Reusability. Make things easy. Pick items that can be re-used year after year like a classic, beautiful, artificial tree that can be pulled out without any fuss. Same goes for other décor – investing in timeless pieces you love will pay off over time.
  2. Sometimes less is more. Your house doesn’t have to look like Santa’s workshop to feel festive. Pick a few items that really put you in the holiday spirit rather than going all out. Going the minimalist route will make your home look chic and help you avoid the slippery slope into overwhelming.
  3. Make a list, check it twice: Christmas puns aside, making a list before you go shopping is helpful for making sure you don’t forget any of those holiday essentials. To save some time and money, consider Walmart for your one-stop shop. You can fill your cart with virtually every decoration you need and don’t have to worry about doing any last-minute shopping for items you couldn’t find. Have more than décor on your list? You can pick up gifts and groceries too.
