Well November has come in with a roar! There is much to do for this cheap mom. Today begins National Blog Posting Month and I am participating so expect to see a post every day this month..
And I even have two themes for the month: Frugal Christmas tips and Gratitude. Since I am a thankful mom who is cheaper than cheap you will get to read the best of both. I may even sprinkle in some of Roo’s antidotes( when you are solo parenting a child with special needs you never know where life might take you).
So on to Christmas Tip#3:
If you already haven’t figure out your holiday budget..there is nothing worse then going in debt to show some love…so plan ahead.
Here is my holiday budget:
Christmas Baking: $20
Gifts for Roo:$175 ( $100 of this amount comes from her dad and gram who send cash and I buy gifts from them)
Gift for Mom:$25
Gifts for others: $30
Roo and I are busy planning what we are making this year and I am sure than will come up in a tip to come.
When the fall comes it really does get you in a thankful mood as the holidays come along. Today I am thankful that I am a mom. It is the best job in the whole world. I love the fringe benefits of mommyhood the hugs and cuddles.
Well time to go pack up the candy that is still out…
