You can’t step in a store without being assaulted by Christmas lights and music. It bothers me that breaking out the Christmas decor and ads and sales has started before Halloween this year.
It just drags the commercialism on and on.
I’ve been following a conversation on Christmas Presents on a Tight Budget at the Twin Cities Family Community, and there are some great ideas for those of you are working on a plan for a frugal Christmas – something that is going to be critical as we have a few extra weeks of marketing crammed down our throats. I recommend stopping by and adding your thoughts to the conversation.
I’ll be sharing some additional money-saving ideas for the holidays starting later this week, so stay tuned.Disclosure: Even though I’m being paid for my role as a community leader in the Twin Cities Family Community, I’d still encourage you to stop by and participate. We’ve got a great group of more than 300 people who talk about everything from what’s for dinner to parenting issues.
