Christmas is coming! Crazy right? I keep looking at the calendar and wondering how on earth it's almost July!
We usually rush around somewhat last minute and try to get everything done. This year though our Christmas is at Thanksgiving, then I'm off to Vegas the week after and P's birthday is in December too so lots to think about!
With all these things happening at once it's important to budget, prioritize and get organized, especially if we're going to be making things ourselves. My goal is to have a ZERO dollar Christmas - freeing up cash for other things (like my trip to Vegas. Alone!) That means that everything will be paid for using Amazon gift cards earned through various reward sites like Swagbucks and Opinion Outpost and/or with cash earned from doing surveys. I've already started squirreling away credit and am excited to see where we end up!
Amazon credit - $38.35
$20 Amazon credit from Valued Opinions
$50 Target Gift Card from E-rewards
$20 check from Toluna
TOTAL so far - 129.35!
Wow! That's not bad. Not bad at all! Imagine where we will be in a few months if I keep this up!
Do you buy your gifts in advance? Or make them? Or are you one of those who runs around last minute trying to pull it all together? Will you join me in this challenge?
