Or if I can, just to plan ahead..

I would have a christmas jar and put a 10 out of every paycheck each year into it so that if we ever hit a rough patch my babies would have Christmas. As much "we can't afford christmas" posts I see, Im going to begin a christmas jar. And for those that are having a hard time this year, when you get back on your feet you should start one too. (:

We've done that. We did 10,20 or 40 each check thru the year. They also make bank accounts (at mine anyways) that you can deposit money and get it December 1st

 I will never go into debt over Christmas or any other holiday.

I will this year. Our situation went from good money to no money really quickly. And now my kids will do without because of me.

Thats a good idea, although some people who can't afford Christmas also can't afford to take $10 out of every paycheck.

I'd sell things before Ruining Christmas for my Kid's, there is always a way.

Actually that is a really good idea.
