Brightly colored Christmas trees are already up in the big boxes and local shops this year, displayed in rows, their breathtaking light displays winking back at you from across the store.  It’s enough to give you holiday buying fever –- as it was intended to.  Just keep your head, and remember you don’t need to spend yet.

If you’re in need of some new holiday swag and there’s any way you can limp through this year and wait until December 26th, do it.  The same 7-1/2’ tree with the $150 price tag will go for about $20 after Xmas. In fact, everything else’ll be slashed, too.  Don’t fall for the glitz and glitter — $50 after the season will get you an entire attic full of light-up crap.

    That’s all good and well… until you forget to buy something on Dec. 26th until you see it on the shelves again in November. Case in point, I don’t see the need for a live tree every year yet for just the lady and I, so I had the intent to buy a fake tree after the season last year. Fast forward to 2 weeks ago while I was cruising the isles of Home Depot and happened upon the Christmas swag… “Damnit!” So it’s either another year with no Christmas cheer, or I bite the bullet and shell out $175 on the finest fake spruse available.

    lol, “finest fake spruse available.” I blew Dr. Pepper out my nose there. My keyboard curses you sir!

    I’m not sure I’m buying this. Just last year I was thinking that I needed to buy a new tree. Mine is probably 15+ years old. So I waited until the end of Dec (after Christmas) expecting huge discounts.

    Huge discounts? Try NO discounts. Home Depot. Lowes. None of them in my area marked these off so much as a farthing.

    Could it be my area?
