Are you wondering how to pay for Christmas this year?
Is it time to reduce your holiday spending?
We’re offering you the inside scoop on our own frugal family traditions.
(It’s FREE on Amazon Prime!)
Of all the holidays, Christmas is the one that is the most magical for children…and often the most stressful for adults. It seems like every year, the wish lists get longer and more expensive, the food prices go up, and the traditions get more extravagant.
Meanwhile, even when it’s not holiday time, our paychecks must stretch further. Some of us have suffered job losses, unexpected expenses, and a higher cost of living.
The holiday season shouldn’t feel like a burden, but for many families, it brings almost as much anxiety as it does joy.

Set a reasonable budget.
Figure out what you can really afford to spend this Christmas and stick to it. I’ll share some tips for getting the family on board (even if you have teenagers) by letting them know what to expect.
Focus on traditions.
This Christmas, instead of going broke and focusing on the number of extravagant packages under the tree, focus on experiences and the things that you can’t buy in a store.
Embrace creativity and simplicity.
Decorations and gifts don’t have to cost a fortune. In fact, some of the best ones can be had without spending a penny. Find more than 100 free or frugal ideas.
