How to go big and save big on holiday décor


--------- SCRIPT --------- 

Reporter Script:

Transforming your home into a winter wonderland can be exciting. Unwrapping festive knick-knacks and stringing your home with lights will give you that warm, fuzzy feeling.

And yet, the bills for your efforts can be a rude awakening come January. So, try these simple tips to make the most of your decorations this year-- without the sticker shock.

First, look for reusability. Choose items that can be re-used year after year like a classic artificial tree you love.

Next, remember: sometimes less is more. Your home doesn’t need to look like Santa’s workshop to be festive. Choose a few items that really put you in the holiday spirit rather than going over the top and getting overwhelmed. 

Lastly, it can be hard to keep track of all the essentials you need, which can mean last-minute splurging. So, along with a trusty shopping list, try tackling your errands at a one-stop shop like Walmart – where you can get décor, gifts for all ages and interests, and even groceries without wasting time or money.
