Buying for people unnecessarily
Eliminate people from your Christmas gift list. This may sound harsh, but do you really need to buy a gift for your husband when you share the same bank account. Talk to those extra family members and friends about putting a pause on gift exchanging, you may find they are happy to save the money too.Be sure you are not spending too much money on your kids.
