Judy would be proud...

After visiting BK & Amy in Bartlesville with their 4 Christmas trees and getting the scrooge comments, we decided we'd go shop for a tree on the after Christmas sales this year. I've never owned a fake tree, but these days they look good and just make more sense.

So we hit up a couple stores, but finally found nice trees on sale at Hobby Lobby. Really nice looking trees at 66% off were just what we were looking for. It was a bit of an adventure between the "we'll take this one" and the completion of the whole transaction, but it gave me some time to scoop us some decorations at bargain prices as well.

Pics? Not this year. I contemplated briefly about setting it up when we got it home, but that thought was quickly fleeting as I realized I had a lot of other things my time would be better served doing.

When all was said and done we got the tree and tons of ornaments, which normally would have cost a bit over $400, for around $130. Not bad eh Judy? And get this, we were only gone a couple of hours, not all day! :)

Oh my goodness, yesterday I had the day off and Justin had to work so I went out just to find some stockings for decorations at work and I ended up buying all of our Christmas decorations from wreaths, ornamnents, lights, table runners...... and I just finished tallying what I saved. I spent $179, and the tally of the true price was $500. I am glad to see I am not the only one happy about such finds!!!
