Would you spend extra on a fake tree if?

Your cat was allergic to real trees?


I do have the option of getting her a shot but I don't know if I want to do that to her, it never makes the problem go away, just less bad. And, this is her home, so I feel like I shouldn't bring Allergens into it.

But fake trees are like $ 100-500 and real are prettier and WAY cheaper! I'd have more to spend on the kids.

o.O the small trees at walmart or costco are pretty and they don't cost that much around here. personally, I'd just go get a fake tree and reuse it every year.

sure real trees are much cheaper in and of themselves - but did you factor in the cost of the vet visit and shot?  multiply that by 3 years and you've more than paid for your fake tree which will last much longer than that.

besides, Costco has a tree this year that has bulbs that change from all clear to all multi color and back.  I'm really trying to remind myself that we already have three trees in the basement.

A decent fake tree only costs about $40 here.

Yep. We don't even do real trees. Fake trees are not that expensive depending on what size you get. It should definitely be less than $100.

We paid $30 for our tree...you can find them for under $100 easily!

We have to have a fake one because of my allergies.

I would never do that to my cat. I bought a 6.5 foot prelit tree last year towards the end of November from Walgreens for 25.00 it works perfect.

There are some great deals for Black Friday on trees. I love my fake tree, I paid $40 for it 5 year ago during Black Friday door buster sale!

We have a fake tree because of my 3yr olds allergies, and because it requires 0 maintenance or care lol. Also, its way cheaper in the long run.
