Can you believe it is September 16? Half of the month is over, which means I need to start planning our Christmas spending. Each year I try to balance out our spending for gift giving.
How do I do that you ask?
Well, I find it is much easier to stay within budget if I plan ahead and ONLY spend what I gain from selling items from our home we no longer use. I find it a challenge and WHO doesn't love a challenge?
I love to be able to "clear out" storage areas and bring in a little cash in the process. The boys love to help too, which is a HUGE plus!
My goal this week - gather 10 - 20 items to sell that we have not used in the past year. Post them on either Facebook Selling Sites, Craigslist, or Ebay.
What do you do to prepare for Christmas expense?
