Budget For This Year's Gifts Now

Set a budget TODAY for your gift giving this year. By setting a limit and sticking to it, I've saved a ton of $. So often, don't we all just pick up a little extra and a little extra over and over? Be sure to include cards and postage. I buy blank cards with pretty pictures and include a note for most that I send.

Hey Laura, this has been on my mind so much lately. Glad I saw your post. I just wrote out my 'rest of year and Christmas' gift giving ideas. We'll see how that goes. Good ideas. OH and I live in Amelia! My hubby's mom is in Mason. How cool is that?! Take care.

I decided at the beginning of the year to make all my cards. I have done birthday, thank you, Valentine's, Easter, Mother's Day and Father's Day so far. I use card stock in various colors and stickers plus alot of other craft items. I know it has saved me money and has been a fun art project as well.
