Welcome to the frugal Christmas challenge, with the economy struggling and people cutting back on spending this year I thought this would be a great challenge and hopefully fun too.
Here's your first challenge...do you have a gift budget? If not sit down today with your spouse and figure out exactly how much you want to spend this year on gifts, decorations, food, cards, ect. Your second part is to plan and make at least one homemade gift. Leave me a comment for me to see your great ideas!
Our Christmas budget is $200-$250 for everything. My homemade gifts are bread, cookie basket, calender, and gift baskets.
