I’ve always enjoyed searching online for decorating ideas, even before I had a house of my own to decorate. After we’d look at a house that was for sale, I would instantly start planning how each room would be painted, what furniture would go where, and so on, even if we hadn’t even placed a bid yet. So now that we do have a house, I get to put everything into motion and decorate how I like.
Although we got the keys five days before Halloween (not to mention one day before our wedding), I did not put up any Halloween decorations. I think that was the last thing on my mind at that point. I passed over Thanksgiving too and went straight for Christmas. Not including our tree, I spent about $30 on decorations at the dollar store and got everything I needed!
