MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) – For those counting down, Christmas is now less than two months away.

People either love to see the holiday decorations up before the pumpkins are carved, or they fret it.

It seems to come earlier and earlier every year. However, the Deal Diva explains why shopping for the holidays as early as October may be the best deal yet.

From snowmen to Christmas pine trees, from fancy reindeer to Santa himself, when one steps inside Carolina Pottery, there's no shortage of the holiday spirit.

Owner Sarah Fleming said the demand to bring in Christmas decor comes well in advance.

“We actually start getting phone calls in May; ‘have you put Christmas out yet? Have you put Christmas out?’” Fleming said.

She found customers like to start holiday shopping early because it helps them keep their budget in check.

An added bonus is early shoppers get dibs on the best deals. Fleming said they have ornaments that start at 99 cents.

That’s not all.

“Red bows, red bows, red bows! We probably make over 5,000 red bows,” Fleming said, adding that red bow wreaths go for $14.99.

Carolina Pottery is not alone. Stores like Costco and Target have already cranked out early holiday deals.

Fleming said people really don't have to spend a lot money to have an enjoyable holiday season.

“With a $3.99 boat of ribbon, $7.99 roll of mesh and some $1.99 ornaments, you’re under about $50, depending on how many ornaments you choose to do,” Fleming said. “Put your bows as your tree topper, your mesh as your filler, put a few ornaments around and you have a beautiful tree to enjoy with your family for the holiday season.”
