Next time you have a birthday party to go to, consider homemade gifts! I love to knit and crochet gifts for people.
However, you don’t have to be crafty to do it and you can get your kids in on the gift making as well. For example, make a batch of homemade cookies and have the kids decorate a brown paper lunch bag to put them in! Voila!
Seriously… Spending can get way out of hand when it comes to gift giving. I really enjoy giving and getting gifts! But there has to be some boundaries where money is concerned.
Portions of this post come from my friend Alysia (she doesn’t know about it though 😉 ). You can get more fabulous money saving tips from her from the folks at Good to Be Crazy.
How will you save money this week?
