Last post on Spending Less:) I LOVE the ideas below and hope that we have given you some ideas of awesome ways to spend less this year!

We set a budget and divide it among those we will buy for. One idea we have tried to adopt and practice is to spend as much for Jesus (through church and other ministries) as we do on any one person. We stick to our budget and buy things on sale and with coupons. For work, I usually make baked goods / candies to share.
One of my daughters makes cute earrings which I love and have requested another pair this year. My daughter in law knits lovely, warm scarves and I have requested one of those this year. Our grandkids have made and painted magnets, coasters, etc. for us.
In my large extended family we usually draw names and set a very small limit . You have to know the person and be creative and shop early and carefully. :)
