In the Christmas Spirit

With all the craziness of shopping, saving and working I managed to finally sit down. Here is how I decided to decorate for the holidays at home and work.

I spent about $14 for everything that I needed. I got some colorful Christmas lights to hanging around the window and bathroom mirror. I then went to the dollar tree and got some red and green garland. I used that to trim the bathroom mirror and threw in some golden bells just to make it a little fancy.

As for work I decided to go with the same theme except I added in white christmas lights. To cover up the green wiring I used some of the silver garland.

I even put up a gingerbread house that I so happened to get from Wendy’s.  I knew that I had to keep it up when I saw that they had a gingerbread kitty.

After putting everything up it definitly put me in the Christmas spirit.

 

Halloween Decorating

Is it me or is this month going by quickly?

I serious can’t believe next week is Halloween. Last week I decided to stop by the local Dollar Tree and Target by my work to see what they had. I was amazed of how quickly everything fell off the shelves. There were still some things but in the end I decided to be creative with what they had.

At the Dollar Tree I spent $3.50 on my office decorations. They were two Halloween garland; one was purple with bats and the other was white with ghost. I also got some window decals that easily removable. They glow in the dark and are bats, skulls and bones.

Since I live in a studio apartment with my BF that their is really not a lot of room or things to decorate. So I decided to just put some colorful decals on the mirror to at least see everyday when we get ready. I also used the left over garland to the top of the mirror and below our medicine cabinet. For the window decals, I spent about $4.00 for two packets from Target.
