100daystreeFinding, buying, and moving a real Christmas tree every year can be a bit of a hassle on top of all of the other Christmas preparations. You can save some money, time, and cleanup by getting a fake tree that you can re-use every year. Depending on the size of your house, a new Christmas tree can be upwards of $50! It is also much more difficult to keep alive, to clean up after, and to keep from pets. Pine needles can be dangerous for some pets.

Another advantage of getting one fake tree that you reuse every year is that it minimizes the wear and tear on your car. Carrying something as heavy as a tree takes a toll on a car!

To save as much money as possible with this tip, buy an artificial tree after Christmas is over. Garden stores and chain stores mark fake trees down as much as 75%! You can get a tree big enough for your space at a fraction of the cost. Choose between pre-lit and plain trees. Plain trees are better for families that want the experience of a real tree, as you still have to hang lights and decorate.

We have an artificial tree that we bought years ago.  It looks real and has saved us a lot of money over the years.

    9 years ago I let my daughter talk me into getting a 8 ft tree (she wanted 10 ft). I wanted to get away. From real trees. My only regret is that tree is heavy. I should have stuck with my guts and got 6 ft tree. Just something to think about when you’re going from real to artificial tree.
