How to find amazing yet cheap Christmas lights
- Dollar Tree: Any store of this nature, where ‘Everything is $1’ is a good place to start. Keep in mind, these light tend to have a smaller light count, and may not last you til next year. This is a great purchase for indoor lighting for small areas.
- Home Depot: You may not think holiday decor when you think of Home Depot, but they do carry an assortment of Christmas lights! The Home Accents brand tends to be on the more affordable side, ranging from 100 clear mini lights for $2.50 a box to 300 light clear incandescent lights for about $9.00 a box.
