The holidays are ALWAYS budget busters. It's hard because I love giving gifts so it really tugs at my heart strings when I am out shopping and want to buy up everything for all of my friends and family!! I have stop myself because it can easily get out of hand. Presents aren't the only budget busters during the holidays. Groceries and decorations can be an easy way to get carried away as well. Since this was our first holiday season as a married couple with our own tree and own place it felt like we were buying a ton of "stuff" even thought we were also trying to be simplistic about our purchases.
So as the holidays rolled around I racked my brain and searched across pinterest for cheap and easy things we could use/create and could even possibly be tossed at the end of the season.
