Celebrating The Holidays On A Budget: HuffPost Readers, We Need Your Advice

Times are tough for a lot of people this year, and Thanksgiving is once again upon us.

In the spirit of sharing, will you tell us how you're celebrating the things that matter most this year?

We are especially interested in hearing about ways to make the holiday special while staying on a budget. We are all looking for ways to save a little money when we can, and this community of readers has many creative people with insight on keeping the months ahead merry and bright.

Send us your thoughts and advice at firsthand@huffingtonpost.com. We will publish some of our favorite reader responses later this week.
