Day Three Blog Party Question is Brought to you by:

DAY THREE QUESTION:
Have you started your Christmas shopping yet? Do you budget for the holidays? Do you always stick to your budget? Share with us any budgeting tips you may have!

I haven't started my holiday shopping yet.... I've been browsing the sales papers, watching the news, and checking my list(s) and checking them twice, heck maybe thrice to see if it is something I "have" to get right now or if it can actually wait.

Our new tradition is that we are buying and gifting after Christmas. To me this makes much more sense due to the fact that I'm not about to be waiting in lines that go about 5 miles back for a specific item. If the economy is this bad, things will be even cheaper after holiday due to stores having to get rid of the stuff no matter what the cost. Am I right?

I have went out and bought some of those shatterproof christmas ornaments because last year when I was trying to find these it was almost impossible. So I've got the tree, got the ornaments (still looking for some extra special ones), I have the lights, I still need to find my Christmas cards.. thinking about going personalized this year, saves time and money, especially when all my friends and family want new pictures! :)

So I'll let you know if I "slip-up" and buy something before Christmas... it had to have been an awesome deal for me really to do so though! :)


Smiles,

~Kristinia/Loving Heart Mommy~

that is a clever idea!

Great idea! With visiting family, the day is so hectic anyways, it'd be nice to wait and celebrate after the rush of the season.

I babysat for a family that gave gifts after Christmas because they celebrated an orthodox holiday that was after. They hit all the after Christmas sales.
