First off, who buys a tree 9 days before Christmas? Uhh we do! Long story short and a good thing to know Lowe's marks down all their live trees, wreaths and garland half off or more right before Christmas. We already had a fake 4ft tree but I really wanted a real one and didn't want to spend the money just to throw it away at the end of the month so when I saw a tree for $10 I was sold. Now the real mission was to find a stand. We went to a couple of stores that were sold out and long story short we got one at Kmart for $5. I think we did pretty good.

|The wreath fell off the hanger so I had to improvise and use the thermostat.|
|The little tree now sits on the floor in our room.|
