Artificial vs Real
Doodle and I are locked in the classic battle of getting an artificial tree versus a real tree this year. We went and looked at artificial trees this weekend and everything looked, well, artificial. Add to that, I want a flocked tree, he does not, and we just gave up in disgust and went home.
Why is it so difficult to find a nice, reasonably priced artificial tree? On the other hand, why are real trees so expensive also? You cannot get a decent tree for under $80.00. For a tree that you will recycle in three weeks!
How do you handle this dilemma? Do you just spend the money on a real tree each year and enjoy or have you found that perfect artificial tree?
