How will you be paying for Christmas this year?

Do you put money away each month to help with holiday expenses?  Or will you be using credit cards or paying for it some other way?  Do you use layaway?

I've bought some stuff throughout the year. I haven't figured out what else to get but when I do, cash.

This year, she has christmas with her dad.  We talked for a couple min yesterday and I was able to tell him that I plan on him doing the christmas thing this year.  And I'll do a lil' something with her when she comes back (around January 3rd).  I  just plan to have a couple presents and maybe one of them being from santa.  Nothing major.  He's going to keep me updated on what he gets for her (he's a spend-a-holic).

I buy things throughout the year as the go on sale. I just need to get ds pj's for Christmas Eve and stocking stuffers. Then I need a few more small things for my mom and brother and a gift for my ex. Then I'm done.

I'm broke and no way to pay for Christmas, so I'm thinking of asking my parents for a small loan and pay them back with tax returns.
