Payday Pretty | Oh Deer!

Payday Pretty Challengers:  December is the month for my Target themed giveaway.  I’ll be announcing the details soon.  Be sure to like me on Facebook to be the first to know!  In the meantime, take the Payday Pretty challenge with me and other women who are squeezing $20 out of the weekly budget to do something pretty for yourself. 

This week’s Payday Pretty….

My two daughters and I are decorating the house for Christmas today.  This is our Black Friday tradition.  Even though I’m a bargain hunter, I’ve never shopped on Black Friday.  I never plan to either.  Fighting crowds and getting up early (or staying up late) for a deal have never appealed much to me.  Not knocking anyone who does it, though.  You’re much braver than I!  My hubby and son did it last year and scored some great buys.

Last evening as I was taking inventory of the Christmas decorations, I realized that it’s time to replace some of our old favorites.  A few of our decorations have been around since hubby’s and my first Christmas together – 15 years ago.  While they are great for nostalgia, their time for display has long gone.  I try to replace a little each year, to keep things fresh and slowly rebuild what we have.  This weekend, I’ll be heading out to Target, HomeGoods and Ross (once the crowds are gone!) to pick up a few new decorations.

Deer and stag themes are really big this year and I’d love to pick up at least one deer themed item for myself or my home.  They are popping up on everything from sweaters and jewelry to pillows and prints.  I love this trend  – it’s an understated and chic way of adding a little holiday spirit to your personal style and home decor.

This week’s Payday Pretty features deer themed pieces for you and your home.  As always, I dug around to bring you some $20 and under inspiration.  I’ll be challenging myself to spend my $20 Payday Pretty money to spruce up our nest this week.  What will you spend yours on?


I’m thrilled to announce that I’m teaming up with the VERY talented Amy at Paper Finch Design (check out her Etsy shop, it’s awesome!) to host a fun deer themed giveaway this week! Amy is a graphic designer who creates custom invitations, home decor and more.  One lucky reader will be getting this cute reindeer graphic print – just in time for the holidays!
