~ Mended my daughter's black pants.
~ Let out elastic in my daughter's dance pants
~ I searched until I found a very good quality item I needed for Christmas for a good price. Wish I could share, but someone reads my blog. ~wink~
~ I found a brand new something that another someone is going to love for $4.99 at the thrift store with $29.99 tag still on it! Woo hoo! Right size. Right color. Right on!
~ I purchased some stocking stuffers at the dollar store.
~ I ate at home one night while I was alone instead of going out for fast food.
~ I received a new Bible for review. I'm looking for one with space to write notes during church.
~ My daughter, Emily, made cake balls with a cake mix she received as a gift and things we had on hand.
~ I made a thrifty lunch of potato soup.
~ Altogether, I think I've spent around $125 - $150 for gifts this year for our family of six. It was nearly all tip money, change, and a few odd dollars here and there that I have squirreled away since October. God has blessed me with good sales and a family that doesn't mind second hand.Thank you God.
~ I'll be giving dishcloths as gifts to some friends. I wrapped them all up yesterday with raffia that I had on hand. I purchased it at a garage sale last summer for next to nothing.
I'm almost done with my shopping. I've got a couple more items and some gift wrap to buy. I tend to underestimate how much I'll need each year. Last night my husband told me that he's going to buy some small gifts for the kids, too. Yay!
Well, it's time to get ready for church. My daughters, Emily and Amy, are performing in a Christmas dance today.
Enjoy the moments!
