Merry Corpmas everybody!!!

Hold on to your money, It is only Christmas if you have little kids, I wouldn't want to be a Grinch for the little ones, But I would love to see the corporations with nothing but a lump of coal

6. You may be pleased to know I am spending almost $5,000 to support the local economy this Christmas.

Our heating system went out a few days ago.
Luckily we do nave a competent local source to install a new one next week.
So HIS family will have a nice Christmas!

2. This Christmas, all gifts I give will be handmade by

craft workers. They're all purchased directly from the makers, through Etsy and other websites, or from local craft workers in my area.

Anyone can go that route if they choose.

9. I make jewelry and pottery and sell on etsy...and I thank you!

 

And I also buy all handmade gifts, except for things like t-shirts, etc., for my young adult kids. If I could find locally made t-shirts, socks, etc., that are good for their work, I'd buy them, too.

10. I hope you have a good holiday season.

A lot of people give lip service to supporting local and artisanal products, but don't actually buy them. I decided this year to only buy such gifts. It has worked out beautifully.

4. Meh. Have a great holiday, however you do it!

 

My family isn't huge into expensive gifts, but I will be damned if I am gonna feel bad about getting gifts for friends and loved ones.

Happy Holidays to all!

5. I cut down this year. Normally spend around 5 grand. This year I am not even at 3 grand yet.

 

I think stores will have a hard year this season. The workers hopefully will survive any lay offs.
