I just heard a poll on the Dave Ramsey show last week, asking how much you are spending on Christmas.

Over half were estimating to spend between $700-$1000 or more. That's alot a mooooola! Especially for those of us that are unemployed.

I understand some of us have big families and buy lots of presents but what's the true meaning of Christmas?

This year, we will have more presents to give away, however, most of those will be something simple and handmade. Much more time and effort into it than just running out to the store to pick something up just to be done with the shopping.

Everything happens for a reason!

Hard core strategies? You bet! But desperate times call for desperate measures!

Tim Allen was crowned the ultimate Scrooge in the 2004 film Christmas with the Kranks when he proposed to skip Christmas altogether. His co-star Jamie Lee Curtis initially balked, but when he began adding up how much they could save--and spend on a tropical vacation instead--she began listening. So how much money could you save by skipping Christmas this year? And what could you do with it instead? Let's take a look.
