11 DIY Easy Christmas Decorations For Your Home : The Saturday Weekend Review #199

DECORATE YOUR HOUSE THIS HOLIDAY WITH HOMEMADE CRAFTS ON A BUDGET   It’s that time of year again when we start to think about Christmas baking, Christmas gifts, Christmas Tree Decorations Ideas, Christmas theme ideas and all of this costs money. Lots of money, especially if you don’t budget for the holidays. You’ll certainly feel the crunch come January though when the bills come due. You can eliminate a chunk of the holiday financial stress by making homemade Christmas gifts including DIY Christmas Decorations. If you’re already tight for cash don’t go out and spend your money on Christmas decor that you can make at home for a fraction of the price. To be honest I really like homemade Christmas decorations over store-bought. One of my fans was showing off her DIY Christmas holiday frames that she’s made. I would have never have thought to re-purpose a picture frame with some spray paint, bows with sparkly Christmas balls dangling. Brilliant idea. There are some pretty cool Christmas decorations you can buy that are outdoor but you’ll pay big bucks for them unless you wait until the end of season. On Boxing Day consumers flock to the stores to grab deals […]

Stealing Outdoor Christmas Decorations Is The New Money High : The Saturday Weekend Review #148

IF IT’S NOT NAILED DOWN YOU’LL LOSE IT   Just when you thought your home was safe because you installed a home security system now you have to worry about theft outside your home, including Christmas decorations. We’re told to lock our doors before we retire for the evening and to never leave valuables in our vehicles. These days homeowners are faced with not leaving anything worth value outside the home because their house might be the next target for thieves. Don’t think that something won’t be stolen because it’s too heavy or just not realistic. There’s always a plan if someone wants something bad enough. The world is filled with people whose only goals in life are to come up with ideas on how to commit crimes to earn money. Many are good at it too because they never get caught but one day they might. Maybe that’s all part of the risk or the thrill for them. Just last week our neighbour put out his Christmas decorations as most of our neighbours had. He typically has Christmas lights around the house and this year he put out some ornaments that he picked up during the end-of-season sale last […]

PF Weekly Grab a brew #44: When should you put the Christmas decorations up?

HOLD BACK THE URGE TO DECORATE If you are wondering when you should put the Christmas lights up there really is no specified date to put up Christmas decorations. We often get asked when is the best time for putting up the Christmas tree and to be honest, it’s up to you. But, should you wait? Wait for what? Now that Halloween has come and gone many people are packing away the scary decor¬† and looking for bells and garland. I know that we store all of our Christmas decor including our fake Christmas tree in the basement. If there is no snow on the ground we just don’t get that festive push though.   Remembrance Day   Not everyone is rushing out this morning to see if they can be frugal and find half price Halloween candy that they can stash away for the year. Some people are dusting off the Christmas decor and talking about what they want to do and where the decorations should go for the upcoming holiday season. I was scrolling through my Facebook page this morning and already I noticed a photo saying not to put your Christmas decorations up until after November 11, […]
