Save with Frugal Dan: Christmas Trees
Thursday, January 24, 2013
It's time for a new feature on Undeniable Facts! On Save with Frugal Dan, I'll share a new tip each week for keeping more of your hard-earned cash in your pocket!
It's almost February, and that means the last of the so-called "arboreal holidays" are behind us, so retailers are anxious to clear out what remains of their Christmas tree stock. They'll be offering that merchandise at bargain basement prices.
Obviously, stores can't fit a bunch of Douglas-firs on their clearance racks, so you're going to need to speak to a manager. He will be happy to show you whatever they have left. Why wait until next October to buy your Christmas (or Boxing Day) tree when you could buy one now for pennies on the dollar.
Just remember to water it. Christmas trees may not technically be plants, but they are very much alive.
