Living on a Budget; How to Afford Christmas: A Yearlong Process

I know it may seem strange or overwhelming to talk about Christmas this early in the year, however, if we have to live on a budget throughout the year, how can we possibly afford all the extras at Christmas time? 

My solution: Think Christmas throughout the year!!

Here are some of the things I do in order to be able to afford Christmas and four Birthdays in December:

  • Survey Money: Any money or gift cards I earn from survey sites, I put directly into my little Christmas fund box.  At the end of the year, it's a little extra cash for presents, and with gift cards, I either gift them or use them to buy presents.
  • Sweepstakes and Giveaways: Throughout the year I enter sweepstakes and blog giveaways, and any toys I win I keep hidden for Christmas or Birthdays.  This year so far, I've collected a Scooby Doo blanket from a blog giveaway and two Hotwheels Stealth cars ($50 value).
  • Reward Sites:  I collect Pampers Points, My Coke Reward Points, and more throughout the year, and when I see a reward that could be used as a present I redeem it.  Recently, on Pampers rewards I had enough to points to redeem for a Razor Scooter, which will be used for my youngest boy's birthday.
  • Swagbuck: On swagbucks, you can earn points just by searching the web through their site, there are other easy ways to earn points, then you can redeem them for prizes. I redeem my points for $5 amazon.com gift codes, and just collect in my amazon account, until I need to buy presents.
  • Shop Clearance:  Starting in January, shop the clearance aisles!  Every time you see items on clearance, think whether it could be a present for someone on your list.  For example: Target clearances their toys out twice a year up to 75% sometimes 90%.  Toys go on clearance in January for their Christmas toys, and at the end of Summer.
All these methods don't pay for all my Christmas expenses, but they definitely help with my Christmas budget so we don't end up in debt.  Plus, it actually makes it a lot less stressful during Holiday times when I already have most the presents I need.

BabyBond Review and Giveaway

Sponsored by Tomoson.com
Baby Bond logo

The BabyBond for nursing could not have come at a better time.  My daughter was born in April, and I have been able to fully enjoy the benefits of it.

view videoThe BabyBond is a wonderful invention for breastfeeding moms.  It helps cover yourself while nursing, but does not cover your baby.  I hate having to put a big blanket over my baby's head, and not being able to see what I'm doing, or if the baby is breathing.  It also defeats the purpose of bonding with your baby while nursing.
I love the BabyBond, because I get to be fully covered, but I can also see my daughter, and talk to others if I need to. 

BabyBond comes in three models, the Original, the Flex and the Couture.  I tired the Couture, because it allows you to feed your baby from the top or the bottom.  It's adjustable creating a custom fit as your body changes after baby arrives.  When worn like a sash, it functions like a nursing top. When worn like a belt, it functions like a belly band.  You can also pick your size, and color.

The Original is worn like a sash, functioning like a nursing top. Nurse from the top of your shirt. Separate the layers of fabric to achieve latch on. Double panel keeps breast covered above & below. Belly & back remain covered with your own shirt.

The Flex is worn like a sash, functioning like a nursing top. Nurse from the top of your shirt. Separate the layers of fabric to achieve latch on. Double panel keeps breast covered above & below. Belly & back remain covered with your own shirt. Removable 9 x 12″ double layer terry velour burp cloth. Able to attach any cloth or wear without cloth attached.
They have nice useful videos on their website to show you how to use any on the models.

You can buy the BabyBond for the $35, use Coupon Code: KAD at checkout and save an additional 25%.

BabyBond has very generously offered one of Kids and Deals' readers their own BabyBond of their choice!!
