Yes- the reality of the holidays. It’s a big holiday and for most of us, a huge part of our fall budget. So I want you to spend a little time budgeting what you are going to spend. Here are some areas that you may want to consider:

  • Food
  • Gifts
  • Donations
  • Decorations
  • Clothes
  • Cards
  • Shipping

So many ways for us to spend money. So here is what I want you to do: Help me write this post. Tell me one of your best tips on how you save money this season. One of you brilliant commenters will randomly win a $10 Amazon Gift Card to help with your Christmas shopping.

So tell me your secret strategies for stretching a dollar this season!
