Christmas Budget

Christmas is around the corner and people are starting to think about what they want to give at Christmas time. At our house we have our Christmas Tree up and our Outside decorations up also. We have been getting Christmas Ads in the mail from companies like Best Buy and Kohls.  We have been getting plenty of emails sent to us about Black Friday sales coming up or pre black Friday sales.

There is so much temptation this time of year to blow our Christmas budget out of the water. We want to buy for everyone and make everyone’s dreams come true, especially the boys. But thank goodness we both are on the same page with our Christmas budget and sticking by it.

If you are single then you don’t have to worry about a spouse at Christmas time and you can go spend what ever you want on who ever you want with in your budget hopefully.

But if you are married it can get tricky if you want to buy them a special gift for Christmas but you don’t want them to know how much you spent on it or what it is. That is a challenge when you are married and both on a Christmas budget.

Remember that you both are grownups and should be able to stick to budgeting goals you have both decided on. If you haven’t yet it would be a good time to sit down and decide on how much you both want to spend for Christmas this year and then break it out for each person you want to spend it on so things don’t get out of line.

Don’t give up on your dreams; don’t let others talk you out of your dreams. Make your dreams happen. Make it happen today.
