This article is a guest post by Kelly Hancock- read the full article HERE - you know you want to it’s really good.

  1. Make a Plan. Set up a gift-giving and holiday meal/party budget with a detailed list.
  2. Shop Black Friday. The deals are really out there, not just on Black Friday, but all weekend through Cyber Monday.
  3. Make Homemade Gifts. Shopping isn’t everything. In fact, the real value isn’t in the gift but in the heart behind it.
  4. Coupons, Coupons, Coupons! When it comes to cooking for Christmas, I coordinate our holiday meal—meats, sides and desserts—with what’s on sale at the grocery store.
  5. Hit the Clearance Racks. Shop the clearance sections at major retailers before you ever spend time looking at anything else.
  6. Shop Year Round. Timing is everything.

Yes we are actually prepared for Christmas this year Smile.
