I don’t know about you, but for my family, in spite of the economy appearing to have turned a corner, we’re struggling to make ends meet! From grocery bills, to the added cost of school activities, to trying to #payoffdebt that resulted from a job loss, we’re STILL trying to get back on our feet.

pack of dollsSo before you start getting mad that it’s not even Halloween yet, hear me out. When it comes to holiday gifts, we tend to overspend. Sad, but true.
