Christmas Giveaway: Debt-Proof the Holidays

If ever there was a time for Americans to start pinching pennies, this would be it. I am so thankful that the Lord gave us a wake-up call a few years ago. It is so freeing.

Though we have done much to cut expenses and adopt frugal ways, there is always room for improvement. And as Christmas approaches? It’s hard not to want to overdo.

I’m so pleased that there are books like Mary Hunt’s Debt-Proof the Holidays. This book is a great resource for charting a course for your celebrations as well as for your holiday spending. Mary Hunt speaks from experience as a former shop-aholic who had racked up debt with a lot of zeros on the end. She paid every penny back, but not before she learned a lot about money and budget living. This book, while addressing all the holidays, hones in on Christmas, since it can be such a budget buster. This book is a great resource to get you ready to fight off the gimmes this holiday season.

And the people at Debt-Proof Living have graciously donated three copies to LifeasMOM readers! Yeah!

For a chance to win, please leave a comment with your name and one way that you will endeavor to be frugal this year. Contest will be open until Saturday night at 8 pm PST. Winners will be chosen at random.

  1. Well our money is not very great these days…bills are rolling in and it is getting overwhelming. Its looking like christmas is going to be very little.

Thanks so much for participating in this conversation about "a mom's life."

This is a place where moms can be themselves. Remember that each mother's path looks a little different. Please keep your comments respectful and kind. Reasonable minds will disagree in a nice way.

So let's talk about it, using "our big girl words."
