This year I am a little bit behind on my Christmas shopping. I’ve come up with a list of the people I’d like to buy for, so that’s a start. Thankfully I have today off so I’ll be able to hopefully get some shopping done. But truth be told, I don’t want to go shopping. I don’t want to spend money on items for people because I feel I have an obligation to. It’s not that I don’t want to bless others, it’s just that I feel like my family is so blessed that we don’t really need anything. Mr. Money and I aren’t planning on going out and buying each other gifts. That’s just the norm for us.
Part of me wants to go out and buy each of us gifts so we have something to open on Christmas morning. Chances are we’ll be at our house for Christmas because Mr. Money will have to work the next day, so we won’t be able to spend Christmas with our family. The other part of me has no clue what to buy because we don’t want to bring any extra clutter into the house. I am thinking about getting us a Netflix subscription so we can enjoy movies at our house. Other than that, we’ve asked for practical gifts like under shirts, undies and socks.
I think I’m going to stop stressing about it and do my best to enjoy a simple Christmas. There’s nothing worse than worrying about stupid things!
Are you planning on a simple Christmas this year?
