A Christmas Challenge

Are you having trouble making ends meet this year? Is the Christmas budget lean? Are you overwhelmed at the thought of "being Santa?"

Never fear, my friends, I have a challenge for you...

Can you...Would you...Could you...

*live off of your stockpile in December and use your grocery budget for gifts?

*have two meatless meals a week in December and use the leftover cash for stuffing stockings?

*make a monthly meal plan that utilizes staples from your pantry (things you already have) and slash your grocery bill?

*freezer cook in advance (this month) using items on sale in November (turkey, baking products, etc) to have ready-made meals in December?

If you are up to the challenge, think about how wonderful it will feel to have a cash-only Christmas!!!

Stay tuned to see some of the ways that I am slashing the budget for the holiday season.
