It’s time to focus on family values and remember what’s important at Christmas.
I, like nearly everyone, I assume, spend too much at Christmas. Things that seem hugely important and a must have, before the day, pale into insignificance afterwards and I usually start wishing I hadn’t spent so much.
I’m on a mission this year to spend as little as possible, while still having a wonderful time with my husband and children.
When I was looking for things to do for our 2 week activity plan in the summer, I realised how much money had been wasted last Christmas.
I bought the kids loads of presents because I remember the feeling, when I was a child, of opening the door and seeing the huge pile. I want them to feel the same every year but instead of buying expensive presents that get forgotten about and left in the toy box for the rest of the year, I’m going to buy lots of cheap presents that need us to help/play with them so they get a huge pile and we get to spend some lovely time together 🙂
I’m also going to be looking for the perfect home made gift for family members, that looks professional and costs as little as possible!
If you have any ideas, please feel free to share 🙂
