  8. My favorite tip is to plan ahead. Use coupons and make sure to budget your spending. Even make homemade items!! They seem to mean more to people and it is normally cheaper:) Please enter me in your giveaway. Thanks!!

  9. My favorite memory was having a quiet get-together one year. We didn’t have anyone else over and it was so nice. Not that we don’t like friends but it was really nice:)

    I would say schedule and organize. Plan meals ahead, and use things you have on hand. When I go shopping without planning I have a tendency to buy more than I need and to spend more on items I don’t really need.

    One of my money saving tips is to clip coupons out of the Sunday paper and go online for coupons when grocery shopping.

    My favorite holiday memory is from my childhood. Every year my favorite uncle and aunt came for the whole day and didn’t leave until we kids had gone to bed. They’ve now passed and I miss them.

    I stockpile baking supplies for months before the holidays so baking homemade goodies to share won’t break my budget.

    My mom and I make a menu and compare pantry and fridge ingredients to reduce buying duplicate items needed for holiday dinners.

    My favorite holiday memory was when I was in my early teens and my mom let me make gingersnap cookies all on my own. I forgot to add sugar and my parents were so nice. They didn’t complain and just suggested we frost them, heavily.


  32. Jamie says:

    My favorite Christmas memory was riding in a local Christmas parade two years ago with my dad, my family, and Santa and Mrs. Claus!

  33. Jacquleyn says:

    I try to have all my shopping done by December. If you get toys on clearance in the summer they are a fractions of the great deals you can find now. Also no crowds. For food I use a lot of coupons and sales. We go to different grocery stores and get the sale of the week stuff at each one.

    Right now, my favorite memory is a current one. This is my son’s second christmas and his first real interaction with a Christmas tree. He keeps on taking ornaments off and then putting them back on the tree. After he puts them back on the tree, he claps for himself. It’s cute.

  51. Abby says:
    not sure why my tweet isn’t showing up in your comments so i’m trying again…

  52. You have to shop the ads. If there is something you want, chances are it is on sale somewhere. Start early so you have the best chance of finding it.

  53. On Christmas morning in 2006, I was at the beach for Christmas. my husband and I enjoyed an early morning beach walk together and it was wonderful.

    My favorite Christmas memory is from 18 years ago. It was the first Christmas in our home and was going to be my parents and husband because he had to work. At the last minute my brothers with their families showed up along with my sister and her boyfriend, my husbands grandfather and another couple. We had a hodge podge of dishes as the snow piled up. The power went out and we ate by candlelight made snowmen and had a huge snowball fight. It was amazing. It didn’t matter that it was not a fancy meal or perfect table setting.

  62. Each person in the family brings one item it’s wonderful we get a little bit of grandma’s potatoes and Aunt Judy’s mac-n-cheese. Furthermore none of us have to go out and spend loads of money!!

  63. Three Holiday seasons ago we got to go to Toy R Us and fill up a UHAUL with all kinds of toys for children in need. It was the best moment ever to just imagine some child having their first Christmas. Really made you remember the real meaning. Still makes me cry! I love the Holidays!!

    My holiday money saving tips: shop both before and after the holidays to buy holiday-related foods that will keep for awhile until the next holiday (like Valentine’s Day or Easter). I’ve gotten brand-name cranberry sauce during the summer for 33 cents a can!

  74. Nancy says:

    A holiday memory: Growing up I remember many members of our family crowded in my grandmother’s small house, celebrating holiday meals together. I remember the “kid’s table” and the “grown up” table and my grandmother’s wonderful cornbread dressing!
