πŸŽ„HOW TO: FEEL FESTIVE ON A BUDGET

Christmas is in less than one week!  'Tis the season of cookie baking, hot cocoa drinking, and present wrapping!  With all of that this time of the year, it can be difficult when you are trying to be on a budget.  I know I definitely have been trying to tighten my wallet (as I am trying to save up for a new car!) . But being on a budget does NOT mean that you have to forego all of the holiday festivities!  I want to give you some tips on how to feel festive on a budget.

1. Holiday Movie Night
Hulu and Netflix have so many holiday movies right now - so why not invite over some friends and pop some popcorn and have a fun movie night in.  So easy and easy on the budget!

2. Baking + Cookie Decorating
One of my favorite things to do during the holidays is bake some festive holiday treats (especially cookies!) . You can get some cheap cookie cutters at @Target or use a knife to cut your own shapes.  There are so many cool recipes on Pinterest - that is where I get a lot of my cookie-inspiration.  

3. Visit a Local Light Show
I do this EVERY year.  There are several really cool light shows that people put on around where I live, so we love to just go hop in the car and drive around looking at the lights.  This makes me feel SO festive.

4. Make Hot Cocoa
This is also a really simple thing to do but it really adds to the festiveness.  It's super easy to make hot cocoa with your own touch: marshmallows, add peppermint, use a candy cane to mix.  Pair it with a cookie that you made and voilΓ‘!

5. Host a Holiday Spa Night
This is one of my personal favorites as I am a huge lover of spa nights!  Find some inexpensive face masks, holiday-scented lotions, and festive nail polish/decals.  Here are some ideas for you spa night:
