So many ways to celebrate this holiday - and so many ways to save. It's such fun (sometimes) to head to the store and purchase gifts - but not so much fun if you overspend when the bills start to come in.

Here are some ways to help you have lots of fun and give gifts that will be appreciated and don't break the bank. Goodies you make for your family are enjoyed just as much when you give them as gifts to others.

After all, the most important gift of all at Christmas time is the gift of love and giving.
