Now that I have some extra space I decided to go ahead and get myself a new Christmas tree this year (my old one was a 3.5 footer from my college apartment). Being the penny pincher that I am, I couldn't bring myself to buy one of the super lush trees I covet from Treetopia. What I did find was a nice white 6.5 footer with multicolored lights from Walmart for $39, can't beat that.
Speaking of decorated, I need to find a tree skirt. . . I'm thinking of DIYing one, if I do, I'll be sure to share.
