The holidays are here! I don’t know about yall, but I’m so excited for this time of year. It’s been a beyond crazy year, and I think we could all use some holiday cheer. I actually got started really early with my Christmas decorating. I don’t normally do that, but hey, its 2020 and there are no rules right?! Since I began shopping in early October, I’ve been able to find a lot of good deals on holiday decor and I wanted to share some places I’ve had great luck at.
FIVE PLACES TO SHOP FOR HOLIDAY DECOR
If you’ve never shopped at Dollar Tree during the holiday season, you’re missing out! You will be surprised to see what kind of stuff you can find. If you’re into crafting, this is definitely the place for you. I love recreating more expensive pieces using supplies I find here. If you search “Dollar Tree Christmas Decorations” on Youtube, you’ll find tons of ideas to make for the season that won’t break the bank. So before you buy that $75 wreath or that $40 centerpiece, take a trip to Dollar Tree first. Not into crafting? Don’t worry there’s plenty of decorations for you as well. Some of my favorite finds have been mini christmas trees for the kids, tacky Christmas party supplies, and lots of beautiful ornaments!
What I love the most about Hobby Lobby is that at some point whatever it is you’re looking to buy, it will be on sale at some point. There sales ad changes week to week. So if the candles you’re looking at isn’t on sale this week, more than likely it will be on sale the next. You can also grab a 40% off coupon off their website to use on any regular priced item.
When it comes to Target, I think they’re the best when it comes to more trendy and fun decorations. I like to checkout out their Instagram page for inspiration. I think in general, a lot of the decor at Target is reasonable priced. The biggest issues is getting what you need before it sells out. I learned my lesson last year with the mini holiday waffle makers, and got mine early this time! Even if you don’t plan to decorate until after Thanksgiving, it’s never to early to go shopping. A few things I’ve purchased that I loved was a gingerbread waffle maker, disposable Christmas plates, and a gingerbread house kit.
So Walmart was actually my first stop when I started stopping for decorations. I really need an affordable Christmas tree, and I knew I would more than likely find something there in my price range. And I was right! I snagged a 6 foot tree for $22. You can’t beat that! It was the perfect size for my apartment. I also found a basic wreath to use a base for my decorations from Dollar Tree, and it was only around 10 bucks. I liked how there was such a wide range of decor that could fit any budget. So if you’re looking to save some money, definitely add Walmart to your list.
Honestly the best time to shop at Michaels for the holidays is when it’s all over. They put all their decor on sale for really cheap. Now granted by then a lot of stuff is gone, but you can still find some great stuff for next year. If you do decide to shop now, definitely keep an out on their sales. I know right now they have 40% off Christmas decorations and floral. Also checkout the app or their website for a 20% off coupon to use on regular priced items.
I know the holidays may look different this year, but don’t let that steal your joy. I’m trying to grasp on to all the positive things going on in my life, and really be grateful for them. Honestly, I don’t usually decorate, but this year has brought out a side of me I didn’t know I had. I’m looking forward to starting new traditions with my family.
