Did you know that Christmas is less than 4 months away? 121 days, to be exact.
That might sound like a lot of time, but it's probably not if you only get paid twice a month. Right now, you might be just 6 to 8 paychecks away from Christmas. If you're like me, you've probably started planning accordingly and intend to buy a couple things each month until the big day arrives.
Now, before we go any further, yes, I get that Jesus (or whatever/whoever you believe in) is the reason for the season. Christmas is about presence, not presents - but I still want to buy my kids some gifts. I plan to get their teachers and bus drivers some presents too, plus I'll probably pick up some stuff for friends and family members.
