    Love all of these. I am a plan early person. I try to get it all done by Thanksgiving, do some Black Friday shopping for myself, and then call it done!

    I avoided buyer’s remorse by spending about $50 on DIY gift supplies. I spent the extended Thanksgiving weekend working on the gifts and managed to make 6 gifts from $50 in supplies! YAY :)

    Hi, I just found your blog through Pinterest. I’m avoiding buyers remorse this year buy not spending any money on gifts. I’ve been steadily working on pressies at home since September and drastically cut back what people will get. It is hard to NOT buy gifts but at the same time it is wonderful to not have to worry and stress about finances.

    BTW, these tips are amazing for any time of the year :)

    I’ve found some really great gifts this year on Groupon. Free shipping on already discounted goods? I’ll take it!

    I sit down every July and come up with my Christmas budget. Then I back into how much I need to put away each month. I generally start shopping in late October. I can’t start too early or I end up giving presents too early. I’m a sucka like that. .

      Such a great idea to make your list in July and plan for the costs. You’re smart Taynia!
