Have you s tarted your Christmas shopping yet? Do you budget for the holidays? Do you always stick to your budget? Share with us any budgeting tips you may have!

No, I haven't started my shopping yet, I usually don't do it until December because my husband's family picks gift exchange names on Thanksgiving. Also, we usually don't have the money for shopping until December when my husband gets his Christmas bonus from work.

I always try to budget, try being the operative word here. I am good at budgeting for other family members, but when it comes to my daughter, I am a moosh! I never have gone completely overboard though. Well, there was her first Christmas...

My budgeting tips are look at clearance racks first, go to discount stores & never pay full price unless you absolutely have to!

I have bought one Christmas present so far. I never budget, therefore I never have to worry about going over one. I just worry about paying down my credit card over the coming year, in time for next Christmas.
