sell your bodyI know the title of this post probably has you questioning my sanity and/or my integrity, but bear with me for a minute.

christmas costsIt's no secret that Christmas can get expensive in a hurry. When calculating Christmas costs most people consider the gifts they gave, but they often forget to account for things like Christmas decorations, extra food, supplies for baking, Christmas cards and postage, and other miscellaneous costs to get in the Christmas spirit.

In the past I've tried to cut Christmas costs by setting a budget for my gift-giving but I never even considered all of the other costs associated with my family's Christmas celebration.

However this year is different, I've got a plan to help cut all of my Christmas costs. The only hang up I had was seeming like a Scrooge. Fortunately, I've found 4 ways to cut Christmas costs and avoid the Scrooge factor.
