Have A Merrier Christmas Without Being A Grinch

I know what you're saying, it's way too early for Christmas! Although I agree in principle, the reality is we are 8 weeks out and 3 paychecks away from the big day.  So here are some practical ideas on how to have a merrier Christmas without break the bank!

  • Instead of giving $20 each to a dozen relatives, why not get together with other relatives to do one special thing? If someone is in nursing care, and you all gather around them with a big screen for the home, that's a big deal. Sharing the burden can bring a soldier relative home for the holidays.
  • Giving time and money to a local charity – especially time – and making that the heart of a heartfelt Christmas letter teaches your kids a valuable lesson and can keep spirits high no matter how bad your year was.
  • Secret Santa is designed to be a money-saver. But instead of buying a lot of small gifts get together with your family on one great gift for one special person. You'll save money and probably get something you really like in return.
  • Shop year-round. When you find a great bargain, something you can't personally use, buy it. Put it away and when it's time to do your Christmas list, wrap it up for someone special. It's the "reverse lay-away."
  • Try high-end yard sales. Sites like EstatesSales.Net and EstateSales.Org offer listings and e-mails. Some folks even pre-shop the sales and send out e-mails with pictures of the best stuff. Christmas lets you turn your hobby into something almost profitable.
