Frugal footnotes:

Here are some frugal tips for Christmas lights.

- Try and always use LED lights.  They use a lot less electricity.
- If a light goes out on your strand, try a replacement bulb.  If that doesn't work, you can use the strand, but keep a bulb in the socket that doesn't work.
- When buy lights at a thrift store for or at a garage sale, always find a plug and check
them out before you purchase them.
