2009 Christmas Challenge.
I know I know, Christmas 2008 isn't even here yet. BUT, I'm done shopping. Done wrapping all that's left is putting up the tree.
So I'm moving forward to 2009.
I want to do ALOT of home made items next year. We don't know what the future holds with the economy, won't know if dh job is secure for the whole year. This takes some careful planning to make it work so it doesn't come off as tacky. But a beautful, well thought out holiday gift giving.
I'm also putting money aside every pay to pay for the holidays again. My balance didn't grow much this year as I bought as I went using those funds for gifts, which is what they are there for. So it worked. My goal is $1200, whether I spend that much or way less, as I have a whole lot of supplies here in my home for home made gifts.
