By making plans ahead of time, you will potentially save yourself valued time and money, as well as make the process easier when it is time to get the job done. Learn some new tips and ideas for your holiday lighting and decorations, ways to maintain your energy bills, and when to use assistance from local tree pros.

Tips and Ideas

When adding décor to your home for the holidays, more is not always better?

When cluttering your lawn with decorations and lighting, it can be overwhelming. Instead, look at what you currently have to work with and see how you can enhance them through lighting and décor.

For instance, add extra lighting around entry ways, sidewalks, and bushes. If you have a mailbox along the street, use some natural décor to dress it up, such as evergreens, ribbons and pinecones.

Many of these items you can find at your local home goods store. Or, if you have existing lawn decorations, find ways to add lighting and decorations to play them up. Make sure you to put your own personal spin on it to help your décor reflect your personality for the home’s overall look and feel.

Maintaining Energy Bills

With the holidays can come increased energy bills. This is often due to additional lighting outdoors, but also indoors as well. If you haven’t already, make sure you switch to using LED lighting, as they can use up to 90 percent less electricity.

Inside your home, to help with your heating bill, you can set your home to a lower temperature during the day. Once you are home, you can turn it back up—which will help to cut costs.

As you look for lighting and other decorations that require power, look for the ENERGY STAR label. For more ideas on how to decorate without breaking the bank, review The Balance’s guide on how to save energy during the holidays.
