  1. I buy after holiday sales. Walmart, Target (Phillips brand), Walgreens, Lowes Home Depot. I have blue icicle lights from Walmart on their 5th year on the house. Strobes I've bought from CDI.

  2. I've used http://www.creativedisplays.com/ and have not had a problem with a single string. (The yearly sale is going on now) I'v also heard that http://www.holiday-light-express.com/ is good, but have not used them. (A yearly sale is also gong on now here too) Built my own mega tree: http://forums.lightorama.com/index.php?/topic/23186-anyone-else-building-a-frame-for-a-12-ribbon-ccr-tree/ The rest come from sales near or after Christmas. I've also had a wire frame deer wander up to my front porch for adoption.

  6. Thank you everybody. Y'all are absolutely correct. I am already planning for 4 more controllers for next year. Hopefully I will have some money when the sale comes around next year. I am still working on some songs and I put up a new one every few days. Up to 7 songs now and 2 smaller animation tracks.

That made it all worth it.
