Christmas Challenge! Extra Giveaways, Entries, and More

For some of you it may seem early to start thinking about Christmas. Those of you who have been saving money for a long time might be expecting this!

Christmas is a lot more fun when you don’t have to worry as much about where you are going to come up with the funds. It is also a lot more fun to give people gifts so cutting that out has never been an option for me. Here is where the Budget Christmas Challenge comes in!

  1. I will be posting “super” deals as we get closer to Christmas. There will be gifts suitable for all ages and genders at very low prices.
  2. I will be posting ways to earn some extra cash and gift cards, which you can turn around and use for gift money.
  3. Those of you who put the Christmas Challenge Button on your own site/blog will get an extra entry into EVERY giveaway between now and Christmas (starting with this weeks giveaway for an Amber necklace!) If you do not have a site or blog then you can get the extra entries for putting “I joined the Budget Christmas Challenge” in a signature line for a forum you frequent.
  4. There will be more giveaways! I always end up with a few items I do not use. This year I will be giving those to you. You can keep them for yourself or use it as a Christmas gift!
  5. There will be special WAHM features and sales posted once a month that you can take advantage of.
  6. I will be telling you about the items I purchase and my budget so you can see how much money this can save you!

This was a hit last year. Let’s see how much money we can save!
