Really, this post is 50% crazy and 50% Christmas.
You see, I have a bit of an obsessive compulsive way of decorating my home for the holidays. I must not buy anything new or full price... ever! Which basically means I have to plan for my needs an entire year ahead of time. Luckily, that also means I get to do a lot of fun Christmas clearance sales shopping and begin December with a load of "presents" for myself.
It's been a long decorating road, but I feel like I've finally collected a fair amount of holiday cheer...
2006- I found a 7 foot beauty on sale after Christmas... but only had a small box of ornaments to decorate it with. Oh, and not to mention the one strand of lights that I zig-zagged across the visible side of the tree.

Hugo even got into the spirit by dressing as a snowman:
Before I forget, here's the new red, silver, and gold tree (next to the old, ugly and 80's door):
*See last year's tree here.
How do you buy your decorations? Do you plan ahead or go out and buy as you wish?
