Gift Giving

Here are some tips for frugal gift giving:

~Set a budget for each gift; whether it is for birthdays, Christmas, weddings, baby showers ect, think about a set amount that you don't want to go over. Keep track of your spending if you are buying more than one item for a person.

~If it is a specific big ticket item ask others if they would like to split the cost.

~Shop around: shop at different stores and look for bargains. Don't leave out thrift stores. I have found some great things with the tags still on especially when it goes to the Goodwill discount store As Is. 

~Look for coupons for stores that you typically find great deals at for extra savings.

~Think ahead: if you find something that is a rock bottom price buy it and tuck it away for future gift giving.

~It shouldn't cost a small fortune to give a great gift and getting out a credit card to pay is not a good or frugal idea. I have learned that there is no reason to go into debt to give a gift from the heart.

Do you have any gift giving tips?

Samples of my recent great finds. The top pick I found the Diesel scarf new with tags for .99 cents (it had a tag that said it was $59) and the baby washcloth lollipops for about .59 cents each both from Goodwill As Is.

The bottom picture is a baby girl Michigan hat on sale for $3 at Meijer. I think the original price was around $20 and the Jacket is from Peebles on sale for about $13 dollars (the original price was $44)

Frugal gift giving is fun, creative and thoughtful and is being a good steward of your money.
