  I always get one of those Christmascoloring books for $1 and let the kids color ( and I color too, heehee ) then hang them all over the kitchen and in the enrty way. Its fun too! Do you have any cheap decorating tips?

i go to yard sales and thrift stores. i find really unique decorations, and i love the fact that they have a history, i prefer those kinds of decorations to new, boxed all-look-the-same ones! and you can't beat the prices!

Homemade snowflakes cut out of white paper, paper chains using red and green construction paper, snowmen from paper.  I love homemade crafts!

Dollar Tree everything in the store is only $1 and they have really cute decorations.

We have a closet in our livingroom, I buy sticky hooks and hang the stocking theres (we don't have a mantel) Around the stocking I hang all the Christmas cards we receive. I also go around the door frame with lighted garland. I also hang ornaments around the room,usually these are larger ornaments and too heavy for the tree. I have LOTS of animated Christmas (mostly Santas) characters, some of those stand near the tree others stand on the entertainment center and I've purchased most of them AFTER christmas so they were very affordable.

I'm anxious for Christmas this year!

I like the dollar stores and goodwill.  You can find some really nice and cheap decorations.  I just bought two fiber optic trees fsor $3.50(it was 50% off day)
