Christmas, like for many people, is my favorite time of year. Colors seem brighter, strangers are kinder, and holiday decor has a one-of-a-kind splendor. But, between the presents, the parties, and numerous nights spent with hometown friends at the local bars (is that just me?), the holiday season can take a serious toll on your wallet. With Christmas spending on the up-and-up at an estimate nearing $1,000 per shopper, it’s understandable that the in-home holiday cheer may be put on the back burner. This is where Christmas creativity comes in! With the abundance of discount home stores (i.e. HomeGoods) and online shops – Etsy and Wayfair to name a couple – the options are endless! Mix in the above with a little creativity and dollar store delights, and your home will be a winter wonderland in no time. Check out my finds/creations below for a little inspiration!
