Not Too Bad for $29.99 at Wal-Mart

Here's our little tree!  Now there are much more impressive trees out there in blog world, but my goal is not to show off my decorating "talent", but to show off how little money was spent on this thing.  We got it two years ago from Wal-Mart for $29.99...pre-lit.  We will be replacing it after Christmas this year, but for the time being it'll do.  I bought most of the ornaments last year after Christmas.  I think I spent about $50 on over $200 worth of stuff, and since I didn't see them again until almost a year after I bought them it was like an early Chirstmas!  If you're a newly-wed or wanting to change up your Christmas decorations I highly recommend waiting 'til after Chirstmas.  You'll be amazed by how much stuff you can get.  I'm already excited about Christmas decoration shopping on the 26th!  My husband found the planter at Lowes for $9.99.  It was a bit of a headache to get the tree in there, but it covers up most of the pole...all 18 inches of it.

I love my Target ornaments!

My mercury glass ornaments came from Tuesday Morning.

Back to Funky Junk.


  1. I'm with you! I'll be looking forward to snagging some great deals after Christmas for next year's decor. Some things have to go and I really need to go through all my stuff before it's packed away.

  2. well done! Very pretty at an affordable price!
    I've always felt that the day after Christmas is far more fun than Black Friday. The deals are much better and it's a different type of adventure.

  3. i love it! Especially the planter!

  4. I really like the look of the planter!

  5. Don't you just love Tues. Morning? I always seem to find a little something there.
