I just love to decorate my home for the holidays. It brings such a happy spirit that lingers in the air for me, my family, and guests. I like to believe that we all love to walk into a home and instantly feel the spirit of Christmas come alive. I definitely know that I do. But we also all know how this time of year becomes financially difficult for others. -And I’m so with you on that. It’s not always that easy to budget for those extra decorations, and gifts when you have other monthly expenses that must come first.
Usually, during the holiday season I try to limit myself. But over the years, I’ve collected so many neat things that it’s hard to decide on what theme should I select for the upcoming holiday season. In my household, we are three artificial Christmas trees of all sizes and we still purchase a real Christmas tree. Usually, a 9 or 10 footer. Oh yes, thank goodness for my tall ceilings. hahaha.
I guess that you can say, we are a little obsessed with them. But for a very good reason. This year, two of them will be decorated as memorial trees. Since my parents are no longer with us and my mom just passing away this year, we decided to decorate a tree for both of them, in their honor. It will help us get through the holiday season without them here. Christmas has always been a happy time for my family so it’s important for us to keep their spirit alive during these special holidays. -And honestly, I’m excited to see these trees shine.
So that is why I am showcasing a few of my holiday favorites that I found on Amazon with you today. It’s never too early to get a jump start on your holiday decoration shopping. I can’t even believe that within a few weeks I’ll be pulling all my decorations out and getting things ready. Insane right? But anyhow, I found these great holiday decorations on Amazon. -And get this, everything is less than $20. Woah! These selections are perfect for budget seekers in mind.
So tell me, do you have a budget for holiday decorations?
