Holiday Decor Tips & Tricks On A Budget!

Happy Wednesday!

I’ve been obsessing over all my christmas decorations lately just like most everyone on Instagram! While it’s up, I’ve been wanting to soak it in! I wanted to share what our house is looking like over the holidays but also share a couple tricks I found for decorating on a budget!

You never realize how many decorations your family has until you  move out on your own. Over the last couple years, I’ve slowly been growing my own collection but lets get real, it’s expensive! Especially around Christmas time when there are so many other things to buy. Because trust me you won’t think about buying decorations until it’s Christmas time.

Slowly but surely I’ve gotten pieces I love and try to find sales (Michaels and Target are great the closer you get to Christmas!) to not break the bank! Here are just a couple simple things I’ve done to help with my decorating budget!

This is the one I’m most proud of. Last year I needed a tree skirt last minute before people were coming over. I went to the dollar store on my lunch to find anything to cover down there. I found the one below and thought even if it ripped I didn’t care! It’s now the second year using it and one of the things people always compliment when coming over! Sometimes simple is better! And you would never guess it was only $1!

What are some of your favorite decorations?
