My dh told me a couple of days ago that we needed a new tree stand for next year. What? He's just telling me now!!! All the Christmas stuff has been clearanced out and is gone....or so I thought. I had to run into Walmart today, decided to check the clearance and guess what? An $18 tree stand on clearance for $.50, yep, fifty cents! Yay!!!! I bought 2 more as back up, we apparently are hard on our tree stands.
