How many of you are being very, very frugal this holiday shopping season?

I am naturally frugal. I only purchased items that are practical and things that have been specifically asked for. Something in my gut tells me are going to be hit harder than ever before. I just don't want to pay for holiday gifts in July. What are your plans for shopping?

  • I started before Halloween....I only buy with cash..we dont have credit cards...I have no plans on really buying for anyone but my children and my husband. Just need a few more things for my middle child and candy for the stockings!

  • We are always frugal, even at holiday times. I shop early & on sale whenever possible & we don't go overboard with gift giving. We also don't exchange gifts between adults, only providing gifts for the children.

  • We don't believe in over indulging. We get practical gifts. Last year my husband gave me a beautiful handmade blanket and that's it. Best gift ever. I like filling stockings though, but again with practical gifts like a new toothbrush or books!
