33: Stop Putting Christmas on Credit
The first Christmas that we really took our debt problem serious I knew that I needed to significantly scale back our Christmas spending. I was already on such a tight budget that even spending anything was a problem. It wasn’t that we made no money, it was that we had SO MANY PAYMENTS.
credit card payments
school loan payments
hockey registration payments (this is a real thing in Minnesota)
life insurance payments
health insurance payments
The list goes on…
Can you relate?
So I committed fiercely to stop the madness. Mike and I skipped presents for each other, we bought the oldest child (who was tween at the time) new presents because we didn’t want him feeling like he was living in the poor house and we bought the infant nothing and we bought the preschooler presents from the Goodwill. I think I actually wrapped some toys around the house for the infant that she wouldn’t know was something we already owned.
Do you know how sad this was for me? And humbling? In the grand scheme this was total first world problems, I get that. I also worked Christmas that year at the hospital and we opened presents a different day so I could get double time that day.
