Don’t worry – the world hasn’t passed you by, and Christmas is here. Instead, this article is more of an early warning sign with some advice on how you can save money on your upcoming Christmas decorations.
If you have never visited a Christmas decoration warehouse, then you haven’t lived! These large and dark spaces are set up like Christmas 24/7, 365. While they may be a bit of a drive to get to, the prices are well below anything you could expect to pay from a store. However, if you visit this time of the year, the prices can be even lower!
Using discounts and coupons from the Groupon Coupons page for Balsam Hill is a great way to get a realistic looking Christmas tree for a fraction of the retail price. These sites and pages also stock a range of lights and house decorations to use, also available through discounts and coupons.
eBay is a great place to get off-season decorations from vendors who are trying to move bulk stock or are simply closing down. If you are lucky, you might be able to find a warehouse (mentioned above) which also offers an eBay storefront.
If you choose to buy from eBay, take note of where the products are made and where they are coming from. While the price may be cheap, it could be at the sacrifice of quality, not because of the money saved selling online.
Charity and Thrift stores are a treasure trove of Christmas decorations at this time of the year. If you can’t see any on display, ask the staff to see what’s out the back. Often, these are kept until the season comes in when more money can be charged for them.
When it comes to Christmas (don’t worry! It still isn’t here yet!), the earlier you can get yourself ready, the better. And with these tips, you can be prepared at a fraction of the cost of last year and without all of the hassle and stress that came with it!
