The holiday season might be the most wonderful time of the year for many but it can also be the most stressful, especially when it comes to decorating.
Now, one mum has shared her hack to take some of the stress out of putting up your Christmas tree, and let's just say that the internet is obsessed.
The mum, like a lot of other kind souls, took to TikTok to share the brilliant hack, using the app's voiceover function to state: "Watch until the end best Christmas hack [sic]."
The video itself features a man looking at a Christmas tree in wonder, with the woman asking him - how much does he think she paid for the big ornaments?
The man then speculated that they cost around $12.99 each, but she then reveals that they were, in fact, almost free.
She then goes up to the tree, which they both agreed was beautiful, and reveals that the large ornaments are actually some pretty lovely balloons.
"Now y'all go get your balloons," she says, before advising, "but make sure you get chrome balloons. It looks more real."
As you can imagine, this incredible hack - which really is a must-know during the cost of living crisis - went far from unnoticed on the social media app.
At the time of writing, the video has been viewed almost 2K times it was posted last week, and we can only imagine that this hack is going to grow in popularity.
Taking to the comments section to praise the genius behind the balloon baubles, one TikToker wrote: "You extra creative for this one!! I might do it too!! Thanks for the idea!! This is gold!!!!! Haha saving me coins!!! [sic]"
"Sooo I guess this how I'm decorating my tree! Thanks lol [sic]," added a second while a third remarked: "wow this is actually so smart [sic]."
"I can't wait til my ornaments come in," shared a fourth. "So excited [and] I got some extra gold [and] silver birthday balloons. All I need is red."
"Absolutely brilliant," praised a fifth viewer.
However, this is far from the only hack that could save you some money this Christmas, as another TikToker revealed how working retail taught her how to make any tree look fuller and happier.
The social media user, who posted under the name @taylor19898, explained that there is a right and a wrong way to position the branches.
So, what exactly does this look like? We hear you ask. Well, here it is, as reposted by another TikTok account, @lifeinmy30s.
She said: "One thing I learnt working in retail: put your Christmas tree branches two out, one up, two out, one up."
"It will make your tree look bigger and fuller," she concluded.
