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.

    1. It’s a great book; I hope you get a chance to read it yourself, sometime! Our countdown to Christmas…let’s just say that this year is making me so crazy, I would like to drop off the face of the planet for a bit. Which is exactly what I’m doing next month – no blog stuff (except social media, for fun) for the month of January, and no writing in February (rebranding, so lots of behind the scenes work, but no post writing). I need a break.

  2. It makes me so sad when I hear how much people think they need to spend on Christmas and how long it take stop pay that amount off. I don’t think that going into debt is what any holiday is supposed to be about. I hope that this book finds its way into the hands of those that need it most.

    1. I completely agree. Debt is a terrible thing under any circumstances, but it’s downright tragic when it’s acquired for gifts, at the expense of the overall financial well-being of a family. #sad
