Have a Happy New Year--and Start Thinking about Christmas 2014...NOW!

Why you should start thinking about your 2014 holiday décor NOW, when Christmas 2013 is barely over?   

1.  Save that money, honey J

Seriously—there’s no better time than after Christmas, and especially after New Year’s, to get deals that are up to 75%--sometimes even 80% (and that should be considered pretty much FREE, in our book) on holiday décor.  Here’s a great example:  a 6.5 foot artificial Christmas tree with artificial lights for $13.75 at Home Depot.  AWEsome!

2.  Be prepared.

The things you’re running low on, or replace—like the string of lights that went dark the day after Christmas, or the fabric bows or ornaments that are starting to lose their luster—are at the top of your mind right now, but by next December, they’ll just be a distant memory.  So stock up now, and you’ll thank yourself later.  
Stores like Walmart, Walgreens, and even grocery stores typically have seriously good after Christmas sales on bows, ornaments and more.  Even stores like Macy’s, where holiday décor can be a little pricey, start marking items 50, 60, and even 75% off after New Year’s.

3.  Change is good.

Face it:  If you’ve put the same decorations in the same place for more than 2-3 years, your décor could probably use a little change.   And what better way to prepare for that than by shopping for new holiday décor NOW, when prices are at rock bottom?

Whether next year is the year that you finally take a chance and go with all white decor, or you decide to stick with gold and silver, or even purple and red...
it's always nice to throw a few new twists into your 
overall decorating plan.
