Not another Christmas Tree

This is the first Christmas season where I have been a ‘Minimalist-in-training’ and it’s been conflicting to say the least.

I love the joy of the holiday seasons, even materialistic things like all the beautiful decorations BUUUT I do struggle with the consumerism of it all and the amount of money and waste spent on things used for only a few weeks. Don’t even get me started on the storage side of it…

We do have a “normal” Christmas tree, and to be honest we probably will for the next few years while he boys are young. But I did see some great alternatives to trees on Pinterest that I have saved for future reference. Most of these could be made from either recycled items or things you already have at home!

Do you have your own version of a Minimalist Christmas?
