How to do Christmas on a (very) tight budget, 2011 edition


Last year I did a series on doing Christmas on a tight budget. Considering I now have new followers, I thought it would be worth it to tweak the series a bit and rerun it.

A year ago, I had just started a new job after spending almost 11 months unemployed. We were in no position to go all out for Christmas. This year, after working full time for a year, I am now only working part time. Though we are in a much better position financially than we were a year ago, we are still in no position to go crazy, nor do we want to. Whether your budget is tight by choice (you just want to save money) or by need (you’re unemployed, or only working part time), the holidays are the time of year where you can either go overboard, or remain in control. I choose to remain in control.
