Planning a Frugal Christmas

Are you planning a Frugal Christmas?  As you know I stockpile for the Holiday’s so Christmas is not too expensive for me.  However, this year I am trying to spend even less than I ever have before.  We are really trying to utilize our stockpile and think outside of the box when it comes to spending.  I decided to post some ideas for ways to be frugal for Christmas this week for Frugal Friday.

1.  Gift Gift from your stockpile:  Put together a “Snack Attack” Gift Basket or a “Cleaning Supplies” gift basket with items from your stockpile.

2.  Gift Giving by hosting a Direct Sales Party:  I hosted a 31 Gifts Party during Hostess Hop Up and earned hundred’s of dollars of free product!

3.  Give a homemade gift – check out our recipes section.  Peanut Butter Fudge, Cookies and Peanut Butter Balls are some of our favorites.

4.  Give a craft item made by your children – I love creating a project using my son’s hand print or foot print.  You can also use projects they build at Lowes or Home Depot!

5.  Give a Magazine Subscription.  Right now you can order All You for only $.83 an issue.  There are also many more great deals available!

I would love to hear some ideas that you have!

    I canned a lot during the summer, so teachers, close friends, neighbors and the mailman will all get some form of jam. I have shopped well the past month on freebies and GWP for stocking stuffers. And I shop all year long for everybody so it doesn’t hit our bottom line so much by Dec.

    I buy even gifts and toss them in my stockpile … if I catch a loss leader price on a toy or a DVD it gets picked up and placed in the attic … there is always someone it can go to on my gifting list (and worst case toys are then donated to Toys for Tots)
