It's almost December....

and I'm about halfway done with my Christmas shopping....and no debt. I did not go shopping on Black Friday, but I did find a deal at Apple online for a gift I'm purchasing. (By the way, they engrave for free when you order directly through Apple.)

Thank you for all your encouragement for the scariest time of year for me, although I'm not out of the woods yet. I hope to be finished with everything by the 15th of December (wrapped and sent to out of towners, and wrapped and hidden for my family). Then, just maybe then, I'll be able to enjoy the season.

My goals for December are:

No shopping for gifts after the 15th.
Stick to budget.
Do not "second think" gifts purchased and go out and buy more.
Sunday's during December will be for COMPLETE shopping, cooking, cleaning, etc. (I'll have to rejuvenate sometime)
Give generously.

Happy belated Thanksgiving to all of you! Hope you had a wonderful holiday!

I love....

no shopping after the 15th.
Do not second think gifts purchased and go out and buy more.

If both you and I can do those 2 things.. that's success!

Excellent List!!
