Christmas is Right Around the Corner

With Christmas right around the corner now is the time to start planning if you haven't already. I like to sit down with a pen and paper and make a budget.
This year we are doing a family gift (about $350) and then an additional $200 per child.
This is far less than we have spent in the past, but I am certain with all of the great deals out there that with a little creativity and work on my part, my kiddos will have a great Christmas.
We have also decided that this year, we aren't buying Christmas gift for people outside of our immediate family.
In addition to the Christmas boxes at church our family tries to adopt a family or help some of the foster families in our church with Christmas.
