    Christmas Tree Decorating on a Budget

    Christmas is expensive, there's no way around it. There's gifts, decorations and food to buy that you don't need or want eleven months out of the year and it's important to remember that it isn't those things that make Christmas. But that doesn't make them not nice, or unimportant. This year is the first time I've had to buy my own decorations completely, instead of using my parents very excessive collection. I've stocked up on a couple of boxes of basic supermarket baubles, which cost no more than a few quid and do fill out a tree nicely. But every tree needs some personality, so we've invested in a few individual ornaments, none more than £5. And yes, because I'm insane, they are all animal-themed. It wasn't intentional, or at least, that's what I told Jay. We're planning on putting up our tree later this week, which I'm so ridiculously excited about.

     Reindeer bauble, ASDA, £2
     Felt penguin, TKMaxx, £3
     Glitter reindeer, pack of 3, 99p stores.
     Fox ornament, ASDA, £2
    Squirrel ornament, TKMaxx, £3.99

    Where do you get your Christmas decorations? I've always been a fan of discount stores like Wilkinsons and Poundland for cheap, festive things, but I think that's because when it comes to Christmas, I'm definitely a more-is-more fan.
