Now that your done Christmas shopping and hopefully stayed within your budget, It’s time to Elf Yourself. What do I mean by don’t forget to Elf Yourself? It means that when you’re done shopping for others and have money left over go buy yourself something to reward yourself or just because you deserve it. If you choose not to buy anything for yourself, you can always use the following ideas.
- Put The Extra Money In Your Checking And/Or Savings Account.
- Hide It Somewhere In Your House.
- Give The Excess Money Away.
I remember when I was working I would start my Christmas shopping in January and have it completed by October. Now I start later like July and finish by the middle of December. A Big difference I know. At the end of the post I’m adding a contact form so you can let me know when you start your Christmas shopping and finish it. You can leave it in the comment section too.
Happy Christmas shopping and don’t forget to Elf yourself.

Links Used In My Research:
For Day 3 of Merry Blogmas I have decided to do Christmas Childhood Memories. One of my first childhood memories is of a silver artificial Christmas that my 2 younger sisters and I would help put up but that wasn’t the cool part. The cool part was this color wheel with the colors of blues, yellows, greens and red. The color wheel we set up was shined on the silver Christmas tree. So when the wheel stopped on a certain color that’s what color the tree looked like. It was really pretty. The best part though was we opened 1 Christmas present on Christmas Eve and opened the rest on Christmas.
My 2nd childhood memory as a kid was when my Dad’s place of work went on strike and my grandfather helped mom get Santa’s gifts out of the attic. This particular Christmas Santa’s gifts were dolls that were as tall as my sisters and I if not taller. The dolls fell down the attic steps. We had a noisy Santa Clause that year.
My 3rd childhood memory was when my sisters and I were older I put a red Santa’s hat on my Grandfather’s head and then I took a picture as did someone else because I have that picture of him in the Santa’s hat with Grandma in the background framed. I look at it every morning.
These are the three childhood memories that stand out. I have plenty more memories but feel it in the best interest of time, I’m not listing them.
