Decorating Your Christmas Tree The Cheap And Cheerful Way

I know it is early but we put up our Christmas tree at the weekend.

When I was a little girl, we always did the tree on my birthday of 13th December. It was the very best bit of my birthday and a well-held family tradition.

However, I feel a need to get festive early this year. I may post about the reasons why this week although it will be a difficult post to write.

Anyway, I am waffling. What I want to say is that you can save yourself a small fortune on decorations for Christmas if you visit your local charity shops.

The decorations you see here some of which were bought last week cost, on average, 10 pence each.

I am linking up with the lovely Liz on the Me and My Shadow blog where we all shout out loud about our bargains of the week. Check it out and get inspired.

    I have never seen Xmas decorations in charity shops. Will keep looking.

    I’ve always been a fan of eclectic and colourful tree decorations, rather being fashionable or colour-co-ordinated.

    Here the charity shops were so over full with holiday decorations that they had them for sale at 50% off for two weeks in November. I mainly bought ones that I can craft with. The ones I use to decorate are those we’ve had for years and bring back family memories.

    Hurray for festivities! As a family we always decorated around the same time as you because we had to wait til after mine and my brother’s birthdays. This year tho Sam and I are decorating on the 1st December and I intend to make it our new tradition :)
    Will definitely be trawling the charity shops. Almost went in one today on account of fantastic armchairs selling for a tenner…but we’re already overloaded with 2nd hand furniture. But you can never have another christmas deco’s!
