Here’s what we did to save money this past week:
I bought two beautiful poinsettias marked down to $0.99 each. I gave one to a neighbor and put one on our table.
I sewed some more gifts for the children while my husband watched the children. I used fabric I had on hand, including fabric that was passed down to me from my grandmother and mother-in-law.
I mended holes in two sweaters.
I hemmed a pair of pants.
I picked a lemon from the garden.
I cut rosemary, parsley, and chives from the garden.
I reused old ribbons to tie gift boxes closed.
Winter made herself a Christmas dress using some hand-me-down fabric.
My husband cut one son’s hair.
My husband and I went to a movie for free. My parents gave us two free movie tickets that they received for donating blood.
Directions to the Christmas Tree napkins can be found here.
