I'm getting a little frustrated as the days until Christmas tick lower and lower. We want to do more experiences and less stuff this year but I feel like the best deals (and sometimes only option) doesn't open up until closer to Christmas. And until I know how much I am going to spend on experiences, I'm not sure how much I have left in the budget for the stuff. That's just the kids. My moms side of the family is in a bit of turmoil right now, I never know what to get for my dads side and I'm waiting until we go visit the inlaws in the next couple of weeks to figure out what to get them. I feel like I am definitely not going to make my goal of being done by December .
