Last year, Mr. M and I set a Christmas gifting limit of $100 for each other. We hadn’t done so before, but since we we’re both traditionally big gifters and were saving every last penny for our house down payment, we thought it would be a good way to quell our urges.
This year, we hadn’t approached the topic yet, but on Saturday, Mr. M initiated the idea again and I followed along. It means dreams of snowboards and blue-ray players jump out the window, but it also makes you be a bit more creative with your budget as well. We kept the $100 limit, but I asked that an additional $25 “stocking” fund be appropriated as well.
So time to narrow the list down, and find a way to be picky and creative at the same time while making Mr. M’s heart leap with joy! :)
Have you set any holiday limits this year?
