What are you doing to make extra cash for Christmas??

I've been babysitting every weekend. I've made about $400. Living that part. Hating working all week, then babysitting all weekend. My kids are older now so running most evenings. Desperate for some down time now!!

Only have one more day to babysit. So I will be going through the house looking for some things to sell. I know we have a lot of outgrown clothes and toys.

Anyone else scrambling for the holidays? I'm trying not to have gifts come out of our regular budget.

I've been steadily selling things we haven't been using or outgrown and using those funds.

Also did a semi-no spend last month (no fast food, frivolous unplanned expenses, etc.) That gave me a little to work with too.

I always plan on using any Staple's recycling rewards during these months for extra stocking stuffers too (my kids love markers, pens etc.)

Are things working out for everyone budget wise?

Lol! I did order two stocking stuffers but I think that was on Wednesday. I'm trying to get small but useful things instead of too many sweets.

Was there a good pants sale?

They're mostly around-the-house pants. Gap and gap factory outlet both had 60% off plus an extra 15% and free shipping. I think it's still going today? I got like knit pants. Sweats-ish.
