You can easily pay $100 or more for a Christmas tree. Or, you can save big and do it yourself. No -- not grow it yourself -- cut it yourself. Cutting your own tree is a guarantee that you will save money, get a fresh, safe tree and enjoy a family outing all at the same time. Where you live might have a lot to do with how much you will pay. Folks in suburban communities can count on spending about $30. And you don't need a truck. Most Christmas tree farms will package and load your selection for you. Remember: get your tree into water within two hours after cutting. And that's the On The House tip for today.
