The holidays are quickly approaching, and the store shelves with orange and black are quickly being being replaced by red and green (and blue and silver!)
Andy and I have really been making a conscious effort to save money this year. Trips to the gym instead of the bars, making budget-friendly meals whenever possible.
So this year, we are starting the High Five Holiday. We will only give gifts that cost $5.00 and under, with encouragement to others to do the same.
Some ideas for gifts might be:
- Books! Goodwill often has books for $1 or less (some are new!). OR, you could be even savvier and dust off a book or two from your own shelf!
- A collection of inspiring recipes from food magazines. Slap on some sheet protectors and put in a binder (on clearance at Target now!) and you’ve just made your own custom cookbook!
- Make a list of movies to rent from the library (or queue on Netflix) and include favorite candies in movie-sized versions.
- Nothing beats something personal and from-the-heart. Write a poem or a collection of memories for your gift recipient.
Get creative, and have fun saving money this holiday season!
