  • How did you all do with Christmas?
    Did you stay away from you cc?
    Did you stick to your budget?

    This year was the first time we had money set aside especially for Christmas. It was awesome because we got our shopping done early and we didn't use any cc or dip into our savings! I am so proud of us. We had a great Christmas and aren't having any buyers remorse.

  • We also didn't use CC. We haven't used them in over 3 years, so it's a non-issue for us anymore. We cash-flowed Christmas by starting a savings early. We were able to afford more things for the girls this year because we didn't wait until the last minute, so it was fun to see them enjoy a few more gifts than usual (last year we only bought each girl 3 things).

    Andy and I used some of our Christmas money to buy a new digital camera, so we are enjoying that. Our old one was on the fritz and it was definitely time for something new.

    We had a great Christmas and are looking forward to reaching our DEBT-FREE goal for 2007!!!!!!

  • We did pretty good.We didn't go as far over budget as I was afraid we would. We did put about $100 on the CC's but we are paying them all off in January, so no harm, no foul.
    I am with you Deanna! I can't wait to have those babies paid off and start working on paying off my car!
