Christmas and pay day

December 17th, 2016 at 02:36 pm

So far I've managed to decorate our home for the holidays with things I have; no extra purchases for home decor. So far, I estimate that Christmas will cost less than $400. I sent my Mom $50, hubby and I decided not to exchange and save our money for our annual Spring break vacation. My son's will each get a $100 gift cards, pajamas, underwear (this is an area they always seem to neglect)and a few candy bars and gum for the stocking. I spent about $75 on other gift for my niece and nephews.

We've made nice progress with our savings as we have been very careful about spending these days. I'm taking another "NO SPEND" Challenge in January from another blogger I follow (frugalwoods.com). I hope to be at a certain amount of savings by July, 2017.

Five more days and I'm off until the new year. /

    I'm also doing the frugalwoods no spend challenge! I'm a little nervous about it, but plan to do my best.

    That's good you are making progress with your savings.

    I'm not sure if I could do a no spend month or not. I am going to have to think about that.

    I don't think I could do the no spend month, at least not in January because that is when I often shop for next year's Christmas as far as items.
