I caught a prelit artificial Christmas Tree on Clearance 2 years ago after Christmas at Target for 90% off!!! I couldn't pass up the bargain.
I prefer a live Christmas Tree but budget concerns had me panicing every year. If I buy a fresh tree then I am short that much cash to spend on my girls
Christmas gifts. So, I broke down and bought the artificial tree. It is very pretty decorated! I spray a cedar smelling air freshner in the room and voila! I have a live christmas tree.
You can't beat Target for those after Christmas reductions. When they reach 90% off, I grab up the bargains. This is when I start my Christmas shopping for the next year.
Target has great clearance sales.
