Hacks for the Holidays #1

This time of year sales start early and often–for everything from gifts to holiday decor. This is particularly true for ornaments, lights and everything you need to make your tree a work of art. Rather than mindlessly tossing things in your cart to take advantage of price cuts, why not walk into the store knowing exactly what you need for your tree to measure up perfectly?
