The holiday season can be an awesome time of year, however, with the economy as it is and the high unemployment rate, are families starting to opt for frugal holidays? Is society in general still using credit cards to finance the holidays
. . . going into more debt?
As an active frugalogist, I wonder how everyone else treats the holiday gift-giving tradition. What I've done in the past is give handmade items, like my Oreo chocolate chip cheesecake. Shouldn't it be the thought that counts? Don't spend money you don't have?
For me, you can never be too frugal if that is what your life circumstances calls for. Sometimes it is a matter of survival . . . sometimes the practicality of future goals?
