Gone are the days when one had to wait for the winter season, or until Thanksgiving, to purchase a Christmas tree. As more people start to see the advantages of having an artificial tree, stores are beginning to offer these prized products all year round.

The best time to shop for an artificial holiday tree is during the post-Christmas tree sale period, which runs from the day after Christmas until January. Aside from finding the best deals, this will get you ready for the next holiday. You may stock up on holiday ornaments and décor sold for a fraction of their regular price.

If this is your first time to buy an artificial Christmas tree, take note of these important reminders.

Measure the Space of Your Tree

Determine the space that your tree will fill in. Measure the distance from your ceiling to the floor and get the area’s square footage as well. Make sure to include some space allowance so your display doesn’t look stuffed.
