To save a pile of money, put your Christmas decorations up all year long. It really works!

For example, say you spend fourteen dollars on a wonderfully droll, Santa-hanging-from-gutter decoration. If you leave it up for thirty days, it costs you about forty-seven cents a day. If you leave it up all year, it costs you less than four cents a day. That means you have so much money left over, you can have Santas hanging from all your gutters—plus that outdoor Simpsons nativity scene you had your heart set on, but thought you couldn’t afford (only eighty-two cents a day!).

You can thank me later.
