It doesn't matter if you've been naughty or nice ... if you're a mom, Santa is going to pass you over anyway.
With holiday budgets on a shoestring this year, moms are going to feel the pinch more than anyone else, the New York Times
Because mothers do most of the holiday shopping, they're going to skimp when it comes to buying a little something extra for themselves. Every woman knows that holiday shopping means padding the shopping bag with a new little black dress for yours truly. Women treat themselves to a new pair of jeans when they're at the mall getting Junior his Game Boy. Or when a woman buys her sister a sweater, she throws another one into the bag for herself. But not this year. This year moms will not only forego a sweater for themselves, they probably won't get one for their sister either. The retail industry is bracing itself for a brutal holiday season.
Couples are agreeing to forego gifts for each other so the kids don't miss out on Christmas. And extended families are deciding that gifts are for kids only this year. So what does this mean for mamas? This winter's little black dress comes straight from the back of your closet.What are you doing to save money this holiday season? Comment in the momlogic community.
