12 days until Christmas. Most people are excited. I am in shear panic. We are not financially struggling for essentials, rent, food, utilities etc. Christmas always puts us in a panic. The kids are at the age of everything they want is over $40, we normally do not have the extra money saved up. This year everything was going great, until my car got totaled an we had to use christmas money to get our other car running.
We have bough 5 presents total since September. Our next pay day is December 22nd. Thankfully this paycheck will have no bills coming out. Just presents.
Even though christmas is not about gifts, I still believe the kids need something to open.
