At least, that's what I believe in my heart.
So, why is it that I get so preoccupied with purchasing gifts?
Not to mention, I always go over budget. Always.
$10 extra here, one more stocking stuffer there...you get the point!
I will admit it is fun to receive gifts but I have told my entire family that (especially) because times are so tough financially, that I really don't want them spending beyond their means on my behalf.
This is also the first year that I have not made homemade gifts for my friends. I miss it but my pocketbook is thankful I haven't made new friends yet. Ha!
I've still only managed to buy one gift so tomorrow is going to be a major day of shopping for me. I think next year I will withdraw cash in the amount of my budget and hope it forces me to be more stringent.
Care to share any money saving tips with me? I could use them.
