Well, we are half way to Christmas, and I don’t know about you, but I am feeling the financial stress of getting everything checked off my Christmas list.
There are so many gifts to buy for our kids, family, teachers, friends, etc., that I have to come up with ways to stretch my budget. One of those ways is to shop at stores with great prices like The Dollar General.
We have one right down the street from us in my small town.
I love shopping there, especially during the holidays, because I love looking at the Dollar General Holiday décor items.
I bought some of their tableware items for Christmas morning. Every year, after the boys have gone to be on Christmas eve, I set the table for our Christmas breakfast.
I love how festive the $4.00 striped tablecloth is with the $2.00 silver chargers and $1.00 snowflake plates. I also love that the chargers and plates are plastic so I don’t have to worry about the boys dropping them and breaking them!
For a more light, crisp look, I placed the table settings on my white tablecloth.
My very favorite purchase were these $1.00 striped straws to go in my daisy cut lids. It’s funny how the littlest things can make us so happy, isn’t it?
My boys love drinking out of these mason jars, so I knew they would love these straws. They are plastic and sturdy, so I will be able to wash and reuse them.
Now we are all set for Christmas morning! Nothin’ fancy-schmancy…just sweet and simple!
