Frugal Holidays?

Oct 31, 2010

November marks the beginning of the end, for me. I mean the end of the year, of course – which is actually the start of the holiday season. This year, I want to plan my gift-giving and event coordinating to coincide with my pocketbook contents so that when 2011 rolls around I’m not digging my way out of a hole. Our family has done fairly well in this area for the last few years, but I know I can improve with a little bit more forethought. It is usually the events (like hosting Christmas dinner) that tend to blow my budget….and I shouldn’t be surprised every single year by the same thing each and every time!
