Gazelle Intensity - Thanks

October 7th, 2017 at 07:31 pm

I love this site. I feel like I can share things that I can't share with family and friends when it comes to my finances.

Everyone here has something to offer whether you've always gotten it right or trying to get it right when it comes to finances, you all offer sound advice without judging and I love it.

Earlier today I posted about not spending $80 that I'd budgeted for a bill I had already paid. Well Credit Card Free reminded me that I need to be gazelle intense while tackling baby step 1, so I added the $80 to EF account. SNAFU suggested that I review my gifting for the holiday season last year so I'll be taking a look at what and who received gifts last year and making some adjustments.

Honestly, I'd really like to stay away from the gift exchange at the office. I'm going to review my zero balance budget for the next period to see if I can start earlier (wish I'd started earlier) socking away for Christmas. I think $500 should cover everyone. Maybe less, we will see.

Thanks everyone, I really appreciate all your help.

    I so know you can do Dave's plan! Good job adding that $80 to the EF.

    If you still feel you have to participate in the office gift exchange, maybe you can suggest cheaper alternatives such as home made gifts. Or a White Elephant gift exchange where people draw numbers. One year I suggested instead of buying gifts for the exchange, we donated the money to the local homeless shelter.

    At my previous employer, for the last 2-3 years, we bought toys and donated them to Toys For Tots.

    At my current employer, we employees do nothing for Christmas, which does NOT hurt my feelings. We do pool our money to buy the boss a gift card.
