christmas blog challenge_ day 4

hope everyone had a wonderful thanksgiving!

i think this may have been the first year ever i didn’t eat too much.

(well i ate too much dessert)

next up, christmas! can’t wait for more family time 🙂

it’s day 4 of the christmas blog challenge….. & today’s topic is:

tips/tricks to a budget friendly holiday season.

well, first, the holiday is more about family time but what you get.

but presents are inevitable it seems, so a few tips:

shop around.

make your presents. this year i’m making some of my cousins stocking stuffers & also my mom’s present (i drew her name this year).

take advantage of free shipping when shopping online.

don’t get sucked into all those giveaways while shopping. if you don’t need to spend $75 then don’t, the free whatever isn’t really worth it.


**it’s black friday (eek!), i think everyone knows that & like i said before, i don’t do black friday.

but, at 12am today i was at the mall for 50% off gap.

mom & i went to the mall wednesday & found a ton of cute basics at gap & found out we could put them on hold & come back between midnight & 10am on black friday for 50% off.

we went to a few other stores but by 2am i was more than ready to get out of there.

now, it’s time for a nap.

    I am a sucker for the “spend 50.00 and receive a free gift.” It gets me EVERY.SINGLE.TIME! Ugh!

    I’m going to get better at making homemade gifts this year!! 🙂 I can’t wait!
