Can’t Afford Gifts This Year? – No Worries!

Giving to other makes is uplifting and helps us feel good. But if you can’t afford gifts this year –no worries  my dears. Living simple is one of the best ways to keeping true to who we are.  And preventing credit card debt will help keep you de-stressed during this busy time.  You may want to try one of these cost-effective ideas:

1) Instead of gifts for friends, family or co-workers,  make time to do something simple  that your loved ones and co-workers will enjoy.  Bake some cookies, a bundt cake, or guilt-free blueberry bran muffins.

2) Make home-made Christmas cards with your children.  This is  a creative way to spend time together and make a special statement. 

3) Meet a friend or relative for a walk, then enjoy a nice cup of coffee or hot chocolate afterwards. If  the weather outside is snowy, go mall-walking.

4) Pick up the phone and call a relative you haven’t spoken to in a while. Skype is free and a great way to “see” each other too!

5) Do something nice for others. Volunteer at a soup kitchen or send a small donation to a charity. Even if you can afford only $10, you’ll feel instantly uplifted, while doing something thoughtful for others in need. 

 Enjoy! Louisa
