I’m a pinch of Grinch with a dash of Scrooge when it comes to holiday spending. I’ve never seen the point of breaking the piggy bank for a chubby guy in a red suit. I love the festivities, but I do not love the bills.


Question: Given the current economic climate, are you spending less this holiday? Where are you cutting costs?

Fox’s Answers:

  • I’m spending less. I’m making lots of homemade presents this year. I’m also giving frugal gifts to loved ones.
  • I’m cutting back on holiday foods, gifts, and paper. My little home garden is proving fruitful for homemade preserves and presents. I’m also cutting costs by wrapping gifts without gift wrap.

What are your holiday spending thoughts?
