    Beautiful. I have my grandmothers white tree and one that my mom used to use in our house growing up. Will be putting them up after Thanksgiving.

    With the 4 gift rule, who needs a tree? Just stick all the gifts in the stocking! It’s a great idea.

    • Ann

      True. lol.

    Check out the Christmas Trees under Amazon Warehouse. A couple of weeks ago I purchased one from National Tree Company that was in “Good Condition” for $55! It’s 7.5 ft and after fluffing it it’s so beautiful. Nothing wrong with the tree at all. It must’ve been a return because only the box was a little beat up.

    Picking up a 4ft PINK flocked & lighted tree at Big Lots for $30. Bought online with free store pickup. 🎄

  5. Jessica B

    I bought the budget friendly tree last year. It’s only 2 or three pieces and I love the remote control for the lights. Once it’s decorated it looks nice and full.

    Thank You, Hip2Save!!! We picked up the 6.5 ft one at Home Depot. $40 is a steal.
