What I'm Reading - Debt-Proof Your Christmas

My Thoughts

This book from Mary Hunt is about more than just budgeting your money over the holidays. It is chock full of gift ideas that are budget friendly. I especially loved the chapters about making gifts in the kitchen for others and the gifts in a jar. She not only talks about giving gifts, but the heart behind giving.

About the Book

Christmas may be the most wonderful time of the year, but it's also one of the most stressful--and most expensive. Expectations run high and it's tempting to whip out the credit cards to create the perfect Christmas for your family, with lavish meals, new decorations, and the latest, greatest gadgets and fashions for everyone on your Christmas gift list. But you don't have to overspend or go into debt to have a fabulous holiday.

Financial expert Mary Hunt shows readers how. She helps readers assess their financial situation, commit to no new debt, and think creatively about their gift list. With Mary's guidance, readers will identify what has caused them to overspend in the past and approach this Christmas with a plan and a new attitude toward holiday spending. This just might be the best gift you can give yourself and your family.
