Free Printables That Will Make Your Life Easier (and Cheaper) This Christmas

Christmas can be expensive. These days the Elf on the Shelf visits and brings gifts, presents are expected to be expertly wrapped and it is expected that you give everyone from the dog walker to the garbage man a gift.

Well, here are a few free...yes I said free...printables that will give your wallet a bit of a break.

Elf on the Shelf Help:

Whether you have an Elf on the Shelf or not, it is always good to have a fall back plan to keep the kidlets busy.
