This weekend i broke out the fall decor. I decided to skip halloween and just decorate for fall, because it would save us money and as much money as i can save for christmas decorations the better :)
I started with the outside, I bought some mums for our front porch and after comparing prices i found a pretty good deal.
The first place i checked was Bi-Lo they had 8'' mums for 4.50 each.
Home Depot had smaller mums i think they were 6'' for 2.50 each, and 8'' mums for almost $7
Walmart had 8'' mum for $3.33!!! Best price so far!!
So here is what i left with.
3-8'' mums from Walmart for a little under $10.50
2-6'' mums from Home Depot for $5.50
Here are my 6'' mums in my hanging baskets
And the 8'' mums i planted in pots.
The pots i got from Hobby Lobby of course :) The pot was $2.99 + 50% off so they came out to $1.50, plus the hubs discount took off the tax! Total $4.50
The trays were $1.27 also 50% off so they came to about .65 cents! That's a total of $1.95
Total for the pots were $6.50
I also grabbed some potting soil from Home Depot for $2 i bougth Scotts topsoil.
So my total for outside fall mums was $24.50! Not to shabby considering you can plant the mums in the ground at the end of the season and they will grow again next year!
