“…outside is frightful, but the fire is so delightful.”
Yesterday was the first official snow of the season in upstate New York. Ick. That’s about all I have to say about that…just ick. Anyway, it forced me to think about the upcoming holidays and how I should start planning for them. Mostly, I need to start planning gifts and spending.
This is always ridiculously stressful for me because I want to put something for everyone but, don’t want to spend a ridiculous amount of money. I always end up buying (and spending) more than I intend of gifts for people. This year, I’m going to try my hardest not to do that.
I was wondering if anyone had some tips or tricks, though. How do you avoid overspending on gifts? Do you make a plan or set aside a certain amount of money and just stick with it? I need some help here because when it comes to giving gifts, I’m a spending machine.
