I've been around. It seems I'm consumed with getting the Christmas shopping done as soon as possible! I've shopped primarily online, but did get out here and there the last few weeks. I skipped Black Friday, except for picking up a pedicure gift certificate. I'm not done, but getting much closer.

It's been fun making use of cash on hand, rewards earned from MyPoints, money earned from ebay and surveys, as well as rewards earned from our debit card over the past year. I think all of those things have help to cover the cost of at least half my Christmas list!

I really want to do a better job next year of saving for Christmas with rewards and surveys. I might have to make it a challenge for myself on my blog! So stay tuned. Smile

    Great idea. Every year I say I'll do better preparing for Christmas spending. Well I am not there yet...Maybe next year? Smile

    I think that's a very creative way to cover Christmas expenses.

    Try www dot mrrebates dot com to find coupons, shipping discounts, and rebates any time of year. It's very cool. I saved a ton myself just today and I wasn't shopping for Christmas, just stuff that I need.

    I will definitely join you in that challenge!
