How to NOT spend money

With Christmas coming up, we have to pinch pennies any way that we can. After all, we want to have  the money for that perfect gift. I have come up with a few ideas on "How to not spend money" so that you can save for Christmas or  just to be saving in general. I hope you find my list helpful.

1) Read a good book


2) Do some much needed deep cleaning

3) Attend a church service or a play

4) Invite a friend over for a cup of coffee

5) Bake something for yourself or give it as a gift

6) Do some decorating


7) Go visit someone that you haven't seen in a while

8) If you have children, schedule a play date for them

9) Drive around looking at Christmas lights

10) Watch as many Christmas movies as you can :)

11) Work on a DIY project 

12) Invite someone over for dinner


*Some of these may involve using gas for your vehicle but that's about it.

 I've been trying to save money for Christmas, so I have been doing all of these to keep from spending money and from going stir crazy. I hope this list gives you some ideas. It's so easy to get caught up in spending money on everyday things that we normally don't pay attention to. Buying a coffee every morning adds up as well as many other items that we think are cheap. A dollar here and a dollar there adds up in the long run!

What are some ideas that you have on saving money?
