It seems like every store is already getting into the Christmas spirit. We're still two months out but the stores are getting prepared, and we thought you should too. We know that buying real Christmas trees can get kind of pricey, so we made a list of stores where you can get the artificial trees that look just as good but aren't as expensive!

    If you live anywhere in the United States, you can't live but a few miles away from a Walmart. Walmart has a variety of trees- from small 3 ft trees to tall 7.5 foot trees, from fat trees to skinny trees. They come in green and white and some are even pre-decorated. They range from $20 up to about $400, so you're bound to find one that fits you at Walmart.

    Here is a map of all of the local Walmart's around East Texas.

    Hobby Lobby

    Hobby Lobby has one of the more unique assortments of trees that you'll find. While they have the typical green Christmas trees, they also have "team spirited' trees! Red and black, silver and blue, gold and black, they have colors of just about any and every professional sports team you can think of! This would definitely make for a memorable tree.

    Lowe's gives you the best of both worlds. You can get artificial trees, but also have the choice of getting a fresh-cut tree! These are your typical green artificial Christmas trees, Lowes keeps it basic. You can probably get a fresh cut one here for cheaper than at a Christmas tree farm. Prices range from about $15-$600.

    Here's a map of the local Lowes' in East Texas.

The price point is from about $18-$430 for the regular Christmas trees, and the animal shaped trees range from $1060-$1500.
