121 Fun Sayings for Simple Gifts




Christmas is getting more expensive every year.  I used to be such a good neighbor when it came to giving little things to my neighbors for Christmas, but as time went on and money got tight, I just couldn't afford to be a good neighbor anymore.

My friend, and neighbor, Mary Ann Barclay, shared this list with me a few years ago.  It helped me finds some great ideas that were simple and affordable for my family to give to our great friends and neighbors.  It made it easier to give something to everyone on our list, so I thought I might share it with you.  

This list comes from a website called Budget101.com.  It's a great little sight that has budget friendly ideas for every holiday and gift giving situation.  Here's a link a printable version of the list on their site.

Some of my favorite ideas are:
    1. A plate of cookies with a tag that says, "Merry Christmas from your "Crummy" neighbors.
    2. A little bag of Hersey Kisses and a wire whisk with a tag that says, "We Whisk You a Merry Kiss-Mas"
    3. A little jar of jam with a tag that says, "Hoping your Christmas is "Jam"-packed with with cheer this year"
    4. A bag or jar of soup mix with a recipe and tag that says, "We think you are Souper! - Merry Christmas from the..."

Another cute idea came from HowDoesShe.com.  We have recently been acquainted with one of their founders.  Their site has so many fun things to offer, but this was and idea my daughter loved.  It's a bottle of hand soup that has a tag that says, "We WASH you a Merry Christmas!"...so cute.  Here's link to a blog that How Does She had on their site with more cute ideas.


I hope as you catch the spirit of the holiday season, you find simple and wonderful ways to make memories and enjoy the people who mean the most to you!

Your Shopping List

Ya, ya, I know what you are thinkin, "why do I need to read about a shopping list?"  Because you want to spend LESS time in the grocery store, LESS energy, have LESS stress, and spend LESS money.  Am I right?  Using a shopping list will help you get in and out of the store faster and spend less money because you are NOT making spontaneous purchases, but rather buying what your family actually needs.
