Decorate cheap but chic

Scrimping doesn't mean you can't celebrate the holidays in style. You just have to be strategic. If you want to turn your home into a winter wonderland, go to a store that allows you to get bang for your buck. If you only want a couple of tasteful ornaments, spend a little more to make them count. 

"For decor, I'm in favour of going to places like Pier 1 Imports, and even Dollorama. You can get really fun stuff and it doesn't look cheap," says Silcoff. "You can use any kind of decorative object. At this time of year, all these stores are full of gold ornaments, silver ornaments, hickory, different candles..."

Christmas isn't Christmas without flickery lighting, so Silcoff has a suggestion: "You can also use church candles, they're really beautiful thick natural beeswax. It's usually cheaper than buying them in a store."
