Countdown to Christmas: Will you join me?

The links in the post below may be affiliate links. Read the full disclosure.

Christmas is officially less than 100 days away. Can you believe it?

Unfortunately the “most wonderful time of the year” can sometimes turn into the most “stressful”, “crazy”, and “hectic” time of the year for many. My hope is that this year we can work together to hold each other accountable to spending just a little time each week to help make the holiday season more enjoyable. By taking these steps now, once the month of December rolls around we should all be able to relax and enjoy the time with family and friends.

So that is my challenge to you…join me on this “Countdown to Christmas” journey and let’s have some fun in the proces! Instead of waiting until the last minute to blow through a mile long to-do list, lets start now and do it together little-by-little.

If you would like to take me up on this challenge just leave a comment telling me you’re ready to go! If there are any holiday time to-do items on your list that you want to make sure we cover make sure to mention them in your comment too!

    I take heart that it is only 465 days until Christmas 2011. I am trying to be ready for THAT day!

    Thanks for the reminder. Let’s hope there are some good bargains this year to be found.

  2. Jennifer says

    I’m in. I’d love to get my shopping done by the end of November. Deals on kid’s toys and such and ideas for making gifts for family members would be great.

  3. JoAnn says

    I hope that this will help me be more organized this holiday season. I want to make homemade gifts for my friends and neighbors this year, send out Christmas cards this year, and organize my Christmas supplies.

  4. Rachelle R says

    i started couponing this year and it has helped me to save in gift giving as well. my husband and i come from large families with lots of little kids so my gift list is ridiculous! i’m definitely ready for any help this holiday season and i know tackling it a week or maybe even a day at a time will make my dollar go a long way.

  5. Kristin London says

    Me too!!
    I’m already trying to put some things aside that I’ve gotten a good deal on and I’d LOVE anything else that can help me.

  6. Danelle says

    I am willing to try anything to try and keep this Christmas stress free even if it is something little that works I will be a happy camper. So count me in.

  7. says

    Count me in! I Christmas shop year round and already have quite a few gifts stashed away for the kids in our family. In my business I encourage people to shop early, shop online and shop through me so they don’t have to fight the crowds.

  8. April says

    Sounds good to me. My main goal is to get my shopping done early. Plus, not to mention, we will be moving in January, so trying to decide how to handle the Christmas decorating this year.

  9. Rani says

    I am new to this couponing thing, but i just went yesterday to go Christmas looking to get some ideas, but would love some advice on the best way to enjoy Christmas without the stress…
    thanks, Rani

    I love christmas and celebrating the reason for the season. These days it is so easy to get caught up in the chaos of the season and lose focus on the real reason. I’m ready to save, stay on budget and celebrate!

  11. says

    Only 100 days? Yikes! I’ve put some toys away for the kids, but would love to find some good bargains for the rest of the family. Also, I would love to have some meals frozen ahead of time to make that week less stressful.

  12. AMY says

    I’m in too! Thanks to Bargain Blessings I already have some gifts bought! The one thing I haven’t done in years is mail my Xmas cards.

  13. Jeanne says

    Hi Friends, Count me in too. This is my first Christmas since I started “couponing”, so hopefully I’ll be able to use some of my bargain finds for gifts. I can’t wait to hear and share some great ideas. God bless you all!

  14. hannah says

    wow less than 100 days already, sheesh!
    I’ve already been thinking about Christmas gifts. Getting married makes the Christmas list double, or in my case, triple!!

  15. Megan S says

    It is funny how every year I tell myself that I am going to start getting ready for Christmas sooner than the last and it never seems to work out. Maybe with a little help from my “friends” we can all do it together! I am with you!
