I was sitting down to do my budget this month and was almost shocked to realize it was NOVEMBER! Even though I have watched the days, weeks, and months pass by, I am still wondering to myself, where has this year gone. Christmas is right around the corner and Thanksgiving is almost here. We have decided that this year for Christmas we are doing the 4 gifts idea.
Each kid is going to get:
- Something they WANT
- Something they NEED
- Something to WEAR
- Something to READ
I’m pretty excited for Christmas this year. For once, I am not stressed about Christmas, our budget, or bank account and I know I don’t have to go into debt just to fund one holiday. Now that Izzie has a birthday just two days before Christmas it’s more important to me than ever to limit our Christmas spending. I have been extra diligent since our lives have been forever changed by her to make sure that Christmas doesn’t overshadow her birthday, which is no easy task.
Speaking of Christmas and gifts, I have an awesome deal for you on Canvas’ and Throw Pillows. Either of these are perfect gifts for ANYONE, even that really annoying relative (or three) that literally has EVERYTHING!! Sale good through 11/12/16 so hurry and pick up yours before time runs out. Every size canvas is on sale but only a few select sizes are 80% off.
