christmas on a dime

We all know how much stress Christmas can put on our family budget. And how desperate we can start to feel if there's not a lot of money to spend at this time of year. I believe it's possible to have a satisfying holiday without spending much money (in fact, I've done an entire Christmas on less than $100 when circumstances required it).
