I've got skills. This year I'm committed to sharing them with you.
I'd like to help you figure out how to provide The Best Christmas EVER for your kids - infused with meaning, fun and joy - without going over budget.

Start now. I already have several toys stashed away for both of my kids.
Enter the Bloggy Giveaways next week to stock up on gifts for everyone you love.
Look - if you think you can't make it through a holiday without whipping out your credit card or saving up $500. . .
