Trees on the Cheap

It's the time of year where you pile in the car with your loved ones and drive to the nearest tree farm in search of the perfect Christmas tree.

I'm definitely a fake tree person. As much as I love the smell of fresh pine, the thought of the needles constantly shedding all over my floor stresses me out! I wouldn't be able to think of anything else!

For those who feel my pain, I have a fake tree shopping tip for you...slum it at Family Dollar. While browsing the isles for a giant bag of suckers (or lolipops as they call them here in Boston), I found a 6ft. Christmas tree for $20. If you're looking for something smaller, you can get a 4ft. tree for $10. Can't pass that up!

If Family Dollar doesn't work for you, head to Walmart where artificial trees are $25 and live Christmas trees are $35. Who said you have to go broke this Christmas!?

Target and CB2 have great ornaments to top it off. After everything's decorated, curl up with hot chocolate and a copy of The Nativity Story. Ah winter...
