Every day now we’re getting a little closer to Christmas. A store in my neighborhood put up holiday decorations a week or two ago. I walk my dog by there every day and stop and look with delight that the holiday season is here.
Is someone you know newly frugal? When you’ve turned a new leaf on your finances and become frugal, it’s amazing in both good and bad ways. You’re excited about all the money you’re saving, but you might be disappointed at all the things you can’t buy in order to save that money. That’s why Christmas is a great time to support a newly frugal friend.
Christmas is a little more than two months away. Can you believe it? For some people, the thought of Christmas coming so soon brings anxiety. In a perfect world, we’d save all year round to cover Christmas expenses. But that’s not realistic for most people, including me. The last thing you need on top of work deadlines, family visits, and Christmas shopping is debt from the expenses of the season.
Every year, the Christmas shopping season creeps up earlier and earlier. Just the other day, I heard that JCPenny will open at 2 PM on Thanksgiving Day and their online sales prices will start four days before that. Kmart will open at 6 AM on Thanksgiving Day and remain until 10 PM that night.Where has Thanksgiving gone?
