April 2, 2010, Newsletter Issue #148: A Change of Scenery Without Spending a Dime

Tip of the Week

Itís human nature to ease into routines. Christmas time is no different. Thereís a certain place you place your Christmas tree, a notch on the wall where you hang your wreath, and shelves that you clear off every year to make room for your scented Christmas candles. Sound like you? Sometimes it isnít a new set of Christmas decorations we need, sometimes we just need a change of scenery!

This year, purposely avoid decorating the way you have in the past. Ask a friend for suggestions, or look at magazines to get new ideas for Christmas decorating. Maybe instead of lining up your candy cane scented candles this year, youíll center them on your dining room table, and instead of draping that gold rope of garland over the mantel, youíll twist it around your new dining room centerpiece for a new look.

Donít be afraid to exercise a little creativity and try something new with something old. If all of your past Christmas trees have looked exactly alike, consider leaving something off of the tree this year. Instead of displaying your Christmas cards on the television stand, cut them up into a Christmas collage and hang it on the wall. Mix it up a bit. You donít need to spend a dime to spruce up your holiday dťcor.
