Christmas Budget

Like it? Pin it! 

Christmas is right around the corner, which means if you haven’t already, it is time to start stocking up on gifts. My goal is to have a Free Christmas, and I have racked up some credits, and paypal cash to start me off. But, this also means, that I will be on a tight budget. Here are some of my tips and tricks to help stretch your Christmas Budget!

How to Stretch Your Christmas Budget

  1. Make a list! It works for Santa right? I like to use Google Docs, to create a spreadsheet of everyone I need to shop for, and how much I have allocated towards their gift. By using Google Docs, I am able to access the list from my computer, or phone. Even the DH can access it when he is out and about. Once I find a gift for someone on the list, I can mark them off, and I annotate what the gift is. This helps to prevent over shopping.
  2. Shop early! It is never to early to start shopping for gifts, start combing the clearance isles for great gift items.
  3. Use coupons to grab high end health care items and makeup for cheap and free, group them together in a cute gift basket for a personalized gift.
  4. Scope out Daily Deal sites, you can usually grab great gift certificates for that hard to shop for person on your list (everyone has one), for over half off! Groupon, 1SaleADay, and Living Social are my top favorites!
  5. Homemade Gifts! Homemade gifts are both personal, and inexpensive. Doing a simple search of homemade gifts will provide you with hundreds of ideas, and you don’t have to be a DIY God to do them.
  6. Freebies! Yes, you can get great gifts for free, or just the cost of shipping. Be sure to follow us on Facebook so you are notified when these awesome freebies are available.

  1. Thanks for the tips! I really like giving homemade bath products as gifts, as it’s a nice little indulgence and can be packaged really nicely.
