Spending More Or Less On Christmas Gifts This Year?
Posted 02 December 2012 - 04:04 PM
As I love to cook and bake I usually make food gifts such as flavoured vinegars, oils, finishing salts, preserves, etc. We also want to help out at the local shelter this Christmas. My husband and I are blessed with so much for which I am extremely grateful. As I type thisI find myself wondering why I do not help out at the shelter more than I do.
What say you? Are you spending more or less this year? No judgements - just curious to see what trends are in your area. Do you spend out of obligation? I must admit sometimes we do (i.e. gifts for husband's workplace).
When our lives are squeezed by pressure and pain, what comes out is what is inside.

If the traffic we saw yesterday while grocery shopping during some inclement weather was any indication, the economy is trying to pick up a bit.

I taught my last class of the semester yesterday, and I gave my freshmen a pen in the uni's color, and a note pad with the three reasons why they were special (three different reasons for each student). I also often give out baked goods, so...

Canola, almonds, soy = evil.
