Christmas--with no debt, less stress, and more joy!
Christmas may be the most wonderful time of the year, but it's also one of the most stressful--and most expensive.

But you don't have to overspend or go into debt to have a fabulous holiday.

With Mary's guidance, you'll discover what caused you to overspend in the past and how to approach this Christmas with a plan. It just might be the best gift you can give yourself and your family.

Story starts out with how the author got into debt one year and it followed them even after the holiday. I've always been one to make things and hope this book would be one of those do it yourself kind of books.
I am always willing to learn how to make decorations in a different way.
Discussions on how the credit card make it possible to always have a nice holiday and pay for it later....
The holiday is so commercialized now we have gotten away from the true meaning of the holiday.
Preparing and planning and other ways to cut back are discussed. Each chapter ends with a letter from how one person's Christmas holiday and how they coped with a change.
Liked the sections on bargain shopping and the recipes and listings of books for the holiday season.
Lots of gift ideas and traditions that are easy to make/do that won't break your budget. Very extensive index at the end.
Other works by the author are highlighted at the end of the book.
This prompted me to make personalized Christmas cards for my 93-year old aunt. I even scanned her signature into each card and hand-addressed each envelope. I mailed 30 cards to her in Canada. All she had to do was apply the Canadian postage and drop them in the mail. I don't know who was more thrilled with the gift - my aunt or me. It was the perfect gift.
This book covers not only spending, but family values, relationship and traditions as well. It helped me focus on a more meaningful Christmas. Each gift I gave was a gift of love meant specifically for that individual. A valuable resource.
This book is highly recommended for anyone who wants to break out of the rampant consumerism being foisted on us in the Christmas season!
