Whats your christmas decoration budget for 2012?

I always tell the missus every year that i dont need any more decorations after christmas is over but i love to buy decorations so this year is no different,im setting aside £250($380) for this year,most of that will be spent on santa and snowman decorations(standing up & shelf ones),i just felt that the living rooms can be more fuller this year with the extra santas and snowmen to give a more warmer feel and my oldest son jayden(7yrs) complained that his bedroom wasnt decorated enough last year so that will have to be sorted too,so i cant wait to start buying come october time,so what are other mmc members spending this year or have some people got more than enough?.

I don't plan to spend anything on Christmas decor this year. We barely have room to store the totes of stuff we have now.

New decorations are not in my budget this year ~ I will check out the Mission store when they put out their Christmas items, though. I snagged some good stuff last year

I know every year, that going into the Christmas season means that new/ different decorations will be coming out and I know I'll buy something. I have my eye on a couple of new outdoor blowmolds that will be coming out and I want to get a German Christmas Pyramid (like in Christmas vacation). Typically, I would say between 100.00 - 250.00 dollars is average.

But, like for me this year we will be spending just a bit more, we have to get a new Christmas Tree this year (last years tree is falling apart - it's about 12 years old and fake needles get all over the carpet) in addition to anything else we want.

Outdoor decorations can look very nice,it's probably a step too much for me thou as a lot of time is needed and preparation so that's why I do alittle extra inside.
