Christmas 2010 Savings Plan
This year, I've decided to start saving earlier so that I can have a bigger budget for Christmas in 2010. In 2009, I saved $250 but ended up over budget by about $200 (fortunately, my husband agreed to use an anniversary present we received to cover the shortfall). This year, I plan to save $500. Since my housekeeper quit, that's a $85 savings already for next year (unless I get another one), so surely I'll be able to come in under budget. I've already added a new savings goal at Smarty Pig and the first $46 will be coming out of my bank account tomorrow. I can't wait to buy everyone I love fabulous presents next year! Anyone else beginning to save now?
