We are now at Day 3 of Christmas of Dreams hosted by MomDot.com
Bridgette has reminded us that we are only 40 days away from Christmas. Crazy!
Have you started your Christmas shopping yet? Do you budget for the holidays? Do you always stick to your budget? Share with us any budgeting tips you may have!
Started? Heck, I'm almost finished. I started shopping back in the summer. I hit Target for their "end of Summer" sale. We are on quite a tight budget, so I had to start early. This year I've tried "earning" extra $$ for Christmas by selling off some things on Ebay, by doing surveys, working a little overtime, and submitting for rebates.
Right now the only gifts I need to get are for the men in our family as I always find them hard to buy for. So if you have any good ideas for a highly intelligent 10 year old, a 70ish grandpa; I would love to hear your suggestions.
BTW, all gifts are being paid with cash or they are homemade. I can't tell you too much about the homemade gifts in fear that one of my family members might find actually read my blog. HA!
