Day 4: Tips/Tricks for a Budget-Friendly Holiday

This is honestly the hardest post of this blog challenge for me. I'm not really a budget-shopper. And I don't mean that in a snobby way. I've just never been great at saving money or sticking to a budget.

Brian and I have a lot of family members to buy for at Christmas. I've come from the amazing Christmas mornings that my parents provided, so that's in my blood. I want to go overboard but as a social worker, that's not always the thing I can do. Last year, I made some gifts. I made some Gingerbread Cookie Mix. I also made some Brown Sugar Body Scrub from the Domino Sugar website. Domino is a great resource for homemade gifts.

I'm looking forward to reading different tips for a budget friendly holiday! I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving!
