Behold, for I bring you
tidings of great joy. A merry Christmas doesn't have to mean spending
beyond your means and starting a new year broke. This year, give the
holidays a reality check against your checkbook, and you’ll experience
the many relaxing pleasures of a downsized December.
Call me arrogant, but quietly snickering to myself while others gripe
about credit card debt or fighting crowds at a packed mall is a large
component of my holiday comfort and joy, comfort and joy. I escaped my
enslavement to the holiday beast, and I'll show you how you can too.
