How Much Do You Spend on Holiday Decorations?
Nicole Dieker

I was able to nab a bunch of vintage ornaments and Scandinavian straw ornaments at the Oakland Museum White Elephant sale last year, all for under $15. I bought my own miscellaneous tree greens to make wreaths for myself and friends for $55 (or roughly $11 a wreath.) I was feeling pretty thrifty until I went to the tree lot and was quoted $70 for a 4' tree with a joke of a stand. I slowly backed out of the lot, then ran, then wondered where I’m going to put all my ornaments.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
