The one statement every one makes as they walk in my apartment makes is "Wow, you can tell a bachelor lives here." They call the walls bare of any decoration, I call it spartan and manly. Well all that's about to change! (with your help)

I'm going to decorate for Christmas, I've never done this before so I need your help! Is there any advice you can give me? I'm going to get a real live (not plastic) Christmas tree. Call it nostaglia as my favorite childhood memories was having a real tree. Call it practical because I have no where to store a fake tree. Call it a cleaning nightmare b/c of the needles and sap that will be everywhere.

What else can I do (on a limited budget ... daddy needs his pizza rolls!!!)
