The other day I shared this Christmas Challenge we’re taking as a family to not spend one dollar on Christmas presents. Weird, I know. You can read more here.
This is not a challenge so we can brag about it. The presents won’t be perfect, but there will be a lot of love and thought going into them.
For example, last February I thrifted a crib dust ruffle. I took it yesterday and made 2 ruffled aprons out of it. One for my niece and one for my daughter. It took just a few minutes and some old thrifted bias tape and two presents were done.
I’ve thought of a few other gifts I’ll be giving this year. I’ll share them with you as I take pictures. It doesn’t need to be crafty to be great. Read some of the comments here and get some ideas.
In the meantime I’ve heard a lot from all of you that you’d like to take on a family challenge yourselves. If you’re in for spending less or any of the ideas discussed here or others, take a button and share on the bottom of your posts! Let me know you did in the comments here and I can do a roundup of challenge ideas over the next few weeks. If you don’t have a blog (which I know many of you do not) share on facebook or pinterest and let others know “you’re in”!
Remember, less is more & what matters is eternity, not the amount of money spent.
What is 1 way that you’re challenging your family this Christmas?
why not share?
