Yes, we're all cutting back on our holiday shopping budget... or at least I am. All of my adult children will just have to understand that we can no longer afford the big extravagant Christmas's of the past. But I'm sure we're in the same boat with a lot of other families. My husband was laid off this year and took a paycut in his new job but at least he's working! I found a new job that I love but it doesn't pay too well either!
It will be a family fun chaotic time with many memories but fewer presents to open. So this year we're concentrating on the gift of "Family-Time Together". If all goes as hoped, our family will be together this year with all 3 of our adult kids and their families coming to our house. I'm delaying my holiday shopping until later this month to see if the big sales will help S-T-R-E-T-C-H the budget a little.
I'm still creating lots of budget friendly items for holiday shoppers in my Etsy shop. With Earrings $12.50 and under, Bracelets $22 and under, and reasonably priced Necklaces too. I decided to keep cost under control and pass the savings along to those that like to purchase unique handmade jewelry for gifts.
So let the holiday shopping begin!
