Holiday Spending Update

December 26th, 2006 at 10:49 am

I just added up my holiday spending for this year, and I did ok!

Although I don't stick to a strict budget, I did have a spending limit in mind - both a total limit and per person.

I have to say that I overspent on my two nieces (the two babies of the family - I just couldn't help myself!). But, thanks to a couple of really good sales, I saved quite a bit on gifts for my parents and sister, so I still met my overall spending limit.

Thrifty Ray blogged about Christmas Account 2007... Already?, and I couldn't agree more with him. Having a savings account/fund just for Christmas gifts is a huge stress reliever, so I will be starting mine soon.

How about everyone else? Did you meet or exceed your spending budget? Any tips/thoughts to make next year a better year?

    In total I spent 40$ on Christmas presents for three people. I'm planning to put about a small amount each month for next year Christmas. Again, I'll probably won't give gift to a lot of people.

    I stayed within budget this year. Although, I was hoping that I would come in UNDER budget...oh well. I didn't overspend anywaySmile
