Our friends over at Sears held an fabulous budget friendly event, perfectly titled “Home for the Holidays – On a Budget” at Tribeca Skyline Studios. Editors and bloggers were invited to get an hands-on, first look at money saving tips for the upcoming holiday season. Sears Holdings Corporation (SHC) Chief Home Design Officer, Theresa Strickland and special guest Jaclyn Smith talked about stunningly affordable decorating and entertaining ideas. Recessionista and author Julie Edelman (“The Accidental Housewife”) provided useful, “do it yourself” time saving tips on creating a welcoming home. We were also treated to a cooking demo by celebrity chef Art Smith, who also walked us through Kenmore‘s fantastic kitchen products!
