Christmas is an expensive time of year for most. For my family, we set a strict budget for Christmas and try not to go over. This year though is the first year I came out under budget!
We set a $900 budget for all Christmas gift purchases. Since I don't work and my husband has had a kind of crappy sales year, we needed to have a strict budget to not overextend ourselves.
For a few years, I've been using some money making apps to earn a little extra cash for Christmas and birthday gifts. This year it's really paid off! I was able to use $150 from these apps to put toward Christmas! Using rewards from stores has saved me a good chunk of cash as well!
Want to know exactly how I saved so much money?
Kohls: I love taking advantage of Kohl's because they have great deals, and they give you kohls cash for purchases you make. This year I did some shopping at Kohl's and ended up within Kohl's cash. So I was able to use that toward a few gifts for my extended family, and another gift for my hubby.
