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.
