Money Saving Holiday Decorating

With the holidays here I’m sure we would all love to save a little money while making everything festive, cozy and nice. I’m with you. Decorating on a budget sounds great, plus every little bit you save on the decorations, you can put towards buying presents and goodies for your friends and loved ones. 😉

So I’m sure a lot of you love to have your house smelling yummy year round, but especially more so during the holidays. Having certain smells that trigger those nostalgic memories of holidays gone by is just great and I usually spread out candles or plugins around the house to help with this. Yankee Candles is one of my favorites and they have a huge variety of scents, from Spiced White Cocoa, to Shimmering Pine and if you’re not a fan of candles, they have warmers and plugins too. You can even take the smell with you in your car. But you’re thinking, this is about saving money and Yankee Candles is a little pricey….. well I wouldn’t mention it to you if I didn’t have a nice money saving coupon to share with you, but hurry, the coupon is only good through Oct 30th, 2016.

Now that we have the house smelling all nice and yummy, let’s get decorating. From touches of Disney, spooky and scary, to the warm looks of Fall or festive look of winter you can find a lot of your holiday decorations at the Dollar Tree. Yup! You heard right… the Dollar Tree. Where everything is just $1.00 (One Dollar). Sometimes you might get lucky and find 2 for $1.00 items in store, but you really get more bang for your buck there. You know that if you’re spending $20.00, you’re walking out with 20 items. And if you sign up for their Value Seeker Club you’ll get access to members-only contests, money-saving party ideas, crafts, recipes, exclusive product sneak peeks & more. Oh and if you like to carve pumpkins for Halloween, be sure and submit your photo and you could win $100, think of all the shopping you can do then. The Photo Contest ends Oct. 31st, 2016.

So if you are crafty and love Do It Yourself projects and are maybe the last minute shopper, then Micheal’s is your playground, and right now through October 29th they are offering 20% discount on all your Halloween decor. Don’t let this savings pass you by.

The last money saving offer I’m going to share with you is one that will help you save year round. The Target Red Card is Fantastic. It saves you 5% off your entire purchase and signing up for it is absolutely FREE. Want to add up your savings? Download the free Cartwheel by Target app and you can save even more by digitally clipping money saving coupons and offers right from your phone that you can use right at the register. Also, if you’re like me and love using recyclable bags you save $.05 cents for every recyclable bag you use.

So add up the savings and get shopping.
