When it comes to Valentine’s Day, you can’t forget your favorite munchkins! Show your love with these adorable Valentine Gifts for kids…sure to get a smile!
It was a quiet, cold February 13th evening a few years ago. The kids were snoozing, and I was up contemplating, as usual, whether I had done enough to make the holiday special for them. I already had a small box of $1 chocolates for each of them.
Now I’m not the type of Mom who believes that every event needs to be over the top. Celebrating in simple ways works out best for my family.
The more you give to kids, the less they appreciate what they have. It overwhelms their little systems.
So I decided that I’d give them just one more small gift. Something I could put together at home for free. Something that would be a small bit of “icing on the cake”. (more…)
Grab some of these small cheap Christmas gifts this year. Perfect for coworkers, teachers, or that person you didn’t know was coming! (Whoops!)
Have you ever been to a Yankee Swap party? (You might call it a White Elephant exchange or Dirty Santa.) You show up with a gift and wind up with a random gift from someone else.
There always seems to be one gift that is fought over. The gift that appeals to everyone. It’s fun to be the winner who brings home the coveted gift. But it’s also fun to be the one who brought the gift that’s sought after.
Truthfully, having a list of cheap gift ideas that appeal to a wide variety of people is handy for a lot of reasons. Teachers, coworkers, coaches, and whoever else you’d like to show appreciation to (without breaking the bank).
Being in debt puts a damper on a lot of things. But the holidays can seem especially hard!
Between feeling obligated to participate in every tradition, event, and gift giving opportunity and the fact that most of your friends seem to take part in every one of those things, it can make the season feel depressing.
Time to reframe that attitude!
The holiday season is the best time to put on your attitude of gratitude! Christmas should be about so much more than just spending money!
And if you can raise yourself up this time of year, imagine the great things you are setting yourself up for! A fresh new year with less debt (especially if you have a habit of financing gifts on the old credit card).
And, if you can beat that debt, your future Christmases can be times of less stress.
I'm Jamie, and I believe that you can build your savings, even when life is frustrating. Learn more.
