I am so excited for the Holidays. This is my absolute favorite time of the year. Bring on the parties, the snow, the food, the decorations, the food, the family, the food…I think you see where I’m going here. A common misconception especially among young people is that you have to spend a lot of money to have an awesome Holiday season. Well my friends this is simply not the case. Over the next few posts I will walk you through how to do all things holiday; decorations, food, parties, presents etc., all while keeping that bill at a less than alarming number. Shall we begin?
- This link is so awesome. You know those cute tags you see on all of the amazingly wrapped presents that are usually about five dollars at the store for a measly pack of three? Well now you can have tags just as adorable, for free. It’s fo free! How can you say no? You can’t okay there you have it. Download, print, stick em’ on your gifts and make them look sweet.

- Repurpose old pizza boxes. I know this may sound strange but I feel it’s quite logical. The next time you order pizza, save it, clean the inside (the best you can) close it and tape and/or staple it shut. Now all you need is some silver, red, green or blue (depending on which accent color you like), and some stencils. If it were me, I’d begin by painting the whole surface red, then laying the stencil down, spraying silver over it all then removing the stencil, leaving a red design surrounded by silver. Proceed to hang these on your wall (they look great in groups of three or four) or give them as gifts. I have seen these done and they look really nice. The design options are truly endless which makes it convenient because you can also use these to decorate your dorm room/apartment beyond Christmas time.
I seem to have carried on here a bit, I promise not all of these posts will be quite so lengthy; I just HAD to share these with you all! Let me know if you try any of these or have any other good holiday décor ideas, I would love to hear about them in a comment below!
