‘Tis the season to be jolly and ’tis the season to start trimming your budget! The average American spends about $990 on Christmas gifts alone. I am totally guilty of overspending during Christmas so I have done some research on ways to save some money during this time of year. Lucky for you (and me) I found a bunch of great tips. By using these tips and spending wisely, your holiday season doesn’t have to be a total budget-killer. Cheers to that!
For the second day of Blogmas, I wanted to do a Christmas season bucket list! There are so many things I love doing during this time of year and I thought it would be fun to make a sort of check list out of those things. Hopefully this bucket list gives you guys some fun ideas! And if you have things you want to do (or usually do) during the season that I didn’t include, make sure to leave it in the comments below! I love hearing what other people do!
MERRY MERRY MERRY BLOGMAS!!!! Welcome to my first Blogmas post!! Who is excited?! I know I am. I’m also a little nervous…but let’s look past that. For my first post, I wanted to write about something I look forward to every Christmas season…advent calendars! I’m 23 years old and I still get excited each day to open the flaps of my advent calendar and see what’s inside. I love any kind of calendar…chocolate ones, beauty ones, perfume ones, candy ones…the list could go on and on. Since it’s the first day of blogmas I thought what better (and sensible) way to start blogmas than with the best of the best advent calendar roundup!
I have decided to do Blogmas this year and I’m kind of terrified. Don’t get me wrong, I love Christmas and writing about all things Christmassy…it’s just the idea of blogging every single day that terrifies me. If I can’t even remember to wash my face every night before bed, how am I going to put out a good quality blog post every single day?! But I decided to put my silly fears aside and give Blogmas a shot. If you’re anything like me, you might be wondering how on earth you’re going to come up with 25 (or more) different Christmas topics to write about. Well don’t worry…I’ve got you. I’ve done some brainstorming and also did some research and came up with 30 fun Blogmas post ideas. These post ideas range from short and sweet list posts to longer more in-depth posts. I’m planning on starting Blogmas on December 1st and ending it on the 25th. And since December 1st is less than a month away let’s all buckle down, grab our favorite spiked eggnog and Christmas cookie, and get to work!
