Best Places for Cheap Holiday Decor
My favorite part of decorating is reminiscing as we pull out the decorations for years past. My kids love hearing the stories about the items from when I was little. My second favorite part of decorating for the Holidays is adding new decor that my kids help pick out. Those new decorations can add up quickly but, if you know where to look you can easily add to your collection without spending a lot of money.

Home Improvement Stores –
Catalogs may seem kind of dated for some people but, they offer some pretty amazing prices for a lot of their Holiday decor. One of my favorites is Lakeside Collections. Yes, you have to wait a while for your items to show up but, the discounted prices you can find are worth it. If you don’t get a physical copy of a catalog many can be found online too.
Local resale pages on Facebook will typically have a lot of Holiday decor as well. The prices here are hit or miss. Most of the time people want to get rid of it but, there are people who are asking way too much for their items.
Estate sales are easily overlooked. However, they can be a great place to find Holiday decor for your home at a low price. Some sales do have higher prices but, many are very reasonable.
Party Supply Stores–
Party supply stores often carry Holiday themed items and their prices are pretty reasonable. Even if you order online, shipping is fairly reasonable as well.
When people are ready to purge their collections the good majority of them send their items to thrift stores. You can get great items for a very discounted price.

Making your own decorations can save a lot of money. You can make larger indoor and outdoor items or, you can have your kids make smaller decorations.
When people don’t know what to do with an item it is commonly set out on the curb waiting for the next trash pick up day. Sometimes things need a little bit of fixing up and other times, the items are in great working order. If you see something you are interested in pull over and check it out.
Consignment shops can be a great place to find Holiday decor as well. Finding Holiday decor at a consignment shop is hit or miss as their inventory depends on what others bring in. If there is Holiday decor there the prices are reasonable.
Just like other items you regularly shop for, coupons can be a big help when it comes to shopping for new Holiday decor. You can find coupons in fliers, online (either to print or mobile) or by contacting retailers.
After the Holiday season has passed, stores offer discounted items. This is the time to pick up those larger items you may not find elsewhere.
Don’t be afraid to ask for a lower price. This can apply to anything from resale groups to actual stores. If you find an item on a resale page, you can offer a price that you feel is fair. At stores, if you find a box or package that is damaged you can ask for a discount on the item.
Your house can look fantastic this Holiday season without having to spend an arm and a leg. There are many ways you can get around the higher price tags. I hope some of these tips help you save a lot of money on your Holiday decor.
