For the past few months I have been reading religiously a wonderful blog titled "http://frugalincornwall.blogspot.com/
With retirement looming in the near furture, we needed to really tighten the budget and I am proud to say that this Christmas was completely debt free. If I could not afford it, I did not buy it. I made many of the gifts this year and everyone seemed very pleased. I have already stated keeping notes on items I will create for next year so stay tuned and I will post about them as I make them.
Scarves seem to have made a comeback so I made this one for my daughter and I added some heat set jewels. No padding required since we have not had a bad cold spell yet.
What about you dear reader, how did you stay within your Christmas budget?
