When I was considering the topic of this blog post I thought of the idea I had read of recently about making a christmas bucketlist. With the numerous events going on in December it may become overwhelming. It may be less stressful if you sit down with your family and consider which things you really want to do and limit yourself so you are not overbooked.
Then I saw that Jessica from LifeasMom.com had written a post on different ideas to counting down to the holidays.
There may be many events in your community that are free or low cost to help your holiday budget go further.
