Hey Friends! How is your holiday season going? Are you still full from Thanksgiving or are you charging full speed ahead to Christmas? Remember last month’s post sharing tips for how to keep Christmas meaningful within your means? Well, now that we are almost two weeks into December I wanted to check in and see how you are all doing? Did your checkbook survive Black Friday? Are you Spreading the Light to those in your community? Check out these 30 ways to Spread the Light this season if you are ready to start! I’d love to hear how everything is going!
As for me, I am definitely taking full advantage of the Holiday Budget Sheet. Before Black Friday struck I made a list of who we would like to give to this Christmas and set our spending budget for friends, family, and Christmas activities. I feel pretty good about our budget so far, but we still have two weeks to go! I’ve also read through this Holiday Planning Guide. SunTrust has provided great tips for online shopping, travel, and meal planning during the holiday season. One stat that stood out ot me was that FedEx would deliver 290 MILLION packages between Black Friday and Christmas Day. Talk about some awesome workers who we could SPREAD THE LIGHT to will a small gift card or thank you note! What do you say? Will you all join me in thanking those who brave the cold and traffic to deliver our packages so we can stay warm inside?
We are also working our way through this list of FREE family activities for the Christmas season. We made hand and footprint reindeer, Christmas trees, snowmen, and Santas just the other day that I hope to turn into gift tags…you can find those here on the blog!
So, let me know what you have been up too? I’d love to hear any stories you have about SPREADING the LIGHT & any other tips your have to being meaningful within your means this Christmas season!
