You can create a new holiday look this year using your old decorations in new ways or even finding new, budget friendly ones.
Angie Hicks, the creator of Angie's List, suggests getting a group of friends together and holding a decoration swap. You can give your home a completely different look, while giving away your unwanted items.
Hicks also suggests working with an interior designer.
"A lot of times there are holiday decorators you can have come in not to do the decorating, but to actually consult with you," Hicks said. "You pay them to have them there for an hour. It's not as expensive, but a great way to get a fresh eye."
If you want help with your lights there are companies out their such as landscapers, roofers and handymen that will come and hang your lights, take them down and store them for you. Hicks says to make sure the company has insurance, in case a worker gets hurt on your property. Also, pay them in two steps: before the installation and after the removal. If you pay in full up front, you don't have any leverage if they forget to come back.
