How to Reuse

When you shop, look for items that can be reused. Rechargeable
batteries are a perfect example.
Even though the initial purchase may be more than nonrechargeable
batteries, there is a definite saving over a long
period.

Another way to save lots of money on batteries is to buy them
online from here.
Another option would be to purchase a nice artificial Christmas
tree. Many of the current artificial trees look amazingly real and
with the right lights and ornaments, you can change the look from
year to year.
We actually purchased one of these trees this year and the kids
absolutely loved it and now we can use it every year without any
further expense.
