Christmas ornaments on a budget

christmas lights

Our home may be the simplest in the neighborhood when it comes to Christmas decorations. We have been using the same decorations for several Christmases now. We don’t buy new ones but maximize the ones that are still usable like the Christmas lights we have here. We also have our mini “Belen” atop the entertainment cabinet.

How about you, did you put up your Christmas decorations already?
