If you find yourself dreading Christmas (or any of the holidays) because of money or obligations you can’t seem to escape, read this book by Mary Hunt. Packed with money-smart tips and chapters full of wallet-savvy gift ideas, not to mention Mary’s trade-mark humor, Debt-Proof Your Christmas will help you find your way through this “most wonderful time of the year” without feeling like you’re having to take out a 3rd mortgage on the house, or move to Bermuda to get away from disappointed relatives.Broken into 18 chapters that each address a different issue, this book will help you sort out what is really important to you about Christmas, and how to achieve it without breaking the bank or losing your sanity.
My favorite advice from this book was to find ways to make the season enjoyable for all, while not allowing perceived obligations and expectations to destroy your own joy. I also loved the section on gifts-in-a-jar and gift baskets!
Mary Hunt is the author of the money management website, Dept-Proof Living, and the personal blog, Mary Hunt’s Everyday Cheapskate, along with several other books including Can I Pay My Credit Card Bill With A Credit Card? and Financially Confident Woman.
