Christmas of Dreams- Day 3

Day Three Blog Party Question is brought to you by Appledonia, Hippos Toes and My Bag

Have you started your Christmas shopping yet?

Not my Christmas shopping, but my Christmas stockpiling. I have been saving prizes, etc that I win for my kids. Every one has one or two things stashed in my room that will get wrapped and put under the tree or in a stocking. I will write out what they have and then shop from there.

My biggest thing will be Yule this year. It is the biggest holiday for our family and we all make homemade gifts. Last year I made everyone pillows with scented dried herbs and essential oils. They were all made depending on the person and what kind of year I thought they needed. It all worked out amazingly well. This year… baked goods!

Do you budget for the holidays?

Yes, I do, I won’t spend too much per person.

Do you always stick to your budget?

Yes, I only have so much!

Share with us any budgeting tips you may have!

Sometimes simple is better. My girls always need razors, hair dye, makeup, etc. Those are great stocking stuffers! Cologne for my son and EVERYONE gets a new pair of socks. There are simple inexpensive ways to fill their hearts; they don’t always need the high end items.
