Blog Party Day 3

Over at MomDot, they are having a Christmas of Dreams Blog Party. You can click here to see other participants.

Here is today's question:
Have you started 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!

I will start out by saying I have done a teeny tiny ity bit of Christmas shopping so far. I do sort of budget. It's more of, how much money we are able to spend and then braking it down to see how much we will spend on each gift. This year, we are really tight, so I am in the process of thinking of things I can make people. I have a couple ideas already. I can't say what they are in case the recipients are reading. I think this is going to be a pretty tight year for everyone.
Here is another picture of James from last year:

Great Picture. Love it. I am in the process of thinking of things to make siblings and their spouses. I was thinking something for their home. Do you have any good advice.

Everyone else should just get a picture of James. And then spend the rest of the budget on him! He's too cute not to spoil!

Such a precious picture!
Budgets are SO tight....I always do homemade stuff, but I think this year I'll be baking a lot for Christmas presents, just because it's a cheap option.
