Frugal Holiday Tips

Before you go to the Christmas tree lot and spend $20-$50(or more)for your tree this year, consider cutting one down from the National Forest. Permits are $5 each in my area and there is a limit of 3. This may not be the case where you live but it's worth a call to the National Forest Ranger District closest to you. Many offices are open on Saturdays during the holidays. Call ahead to make sure.

We have been doing this for the past 10 years and it has become one of our favorite traditions. We have many fond memories of hiking in the woods looking for the perfect "Rouse Family Christmas Tree".

Make sure you prepare for the weather. A good time can go bad quickly when little ones are cold. You will also most likely be on back country roads where it can be easy to get stuck (2004).

Most importantly have fun and enjoy this time together with your family.

Live less, live more
