To be honest–and why would I be anything else–it's hard to share these links; in so doing, it lessens my chances of winning :).  That being said, if it can't "be me", why, OF COURSE I want YOU, my darling readers to win!

Many of the elevenmoms are asking for your best holiday "green", decorating, or money-saving tip, and in a nutshell, mine is simply this: 

Re-purpose and use what you already have!
(it falls into all the above contest categories.)

We all re-use gift bags & bows, some of us even re-use wrapping paper!  Since I don't own Christmas china, I use my wedding china whenever occasion arises.  It alwaysALWAYS makes me sad for those friends who tell me theirs is still in boxes in the attic.  My philosophy?  I'd rather break a piece than never use it…and I have my mother-in-law to thank for modeling this for me :).  I challenge you to use your fine china when you'd rather use paper; a) it reduces land-fill waste, and b) it'll add "special" to every occasion, c) washing dishes with family or friends is actually enjoyable, d) it's just wise stewardship of what you already have!

I'd love to know your favorite tip for going green, decorating or saving money during the holidays…chime in with a comment!
