Last year I signed up for a credit card to get both of my parents something really nice for Christmas. I was really excited and it felt good. Then I soon realized..... how stupid I had been. Thinking I was going to just pay it off and move on. Let's just say I just got done paying that sucker off. I am telling myself I will never sign up for one again. PS... that wasn't my only one. I am down to one card now and the goal is to have it payed off by Christmas. Therefore I don't have money to be spending on Christmas presents which is kinda sad but in the long run it will be the best thing for me.
This means I will be doing the dreaded making the Christmas presents gig but with the help of little to no cash. I am not dreading it by any means because I love making things. I'm just nervous about the reaction my family will give me.
My plan is to paint everyone a picture based on the colors of their rooms and what I think they would like. So we will see how this turns out. Deep down I feel like maybe I should have a back up plan but for some reason I'm just not doing that. It is kind of a way to force myself to be as creative as I can which is actually exciting!
So what are you doing for presents? Are you finished shopping yet?
