Counting down

So the other day I mentioned 100 Days till Christmas. I love countdowns, not sure why, but I do. Over the last few years I have created something like 100 Days till Christmas suggests. A holiday binder/book of sorts. Some things have worked out great, others have not. So I'm a little excited to see where this one will steer me. In about another month I will be receiving a Christmas Club check. I've been putting away $40 a week since last October, you usually works out to be about $2000 and it's really great. In the past we have gone over that amount. But this year, I really have to work at staying at this amount. As we all know everything is expensive so we need to save where we can. I'm thinking some homemade items this year. I'll have to see what I can come up with.

I didn't know they still did Christmas clubs! Good for you--that check will be great.

Great idea with the savings club.

I think that a simple, homemade Christmas is the BEST! Christmas is a special and magical time of year, stress does not enhance that!! And spending lots of money that we don't have doesn't help either! YIKES.

My friend has a blog http://www.happybirdscraftinghaven.com/ . She always has WONDERFUL, inexpensive, caring project ideas for gifts. You might want to check her out often! :)

Good luck with Christmas this year. I am sure I will be checking back as I am doing this challenge also! :)
