I know I've said several times through the summer that I picked up great
Christmas gifts on the cheap by garage sale hunting, and now that
Christmas is past and I won't ruin any surprises, I can share the gifts
I know the idea of yard-sale gifts for Christmas doesn't sit well with some, but I think Michelle Duggar says it best with the motto "Buy used, save the difference!" We embraced this philosophy this Christmas as much as possible by buying gifts used, or making them ourselves. And you know what? Our families got WAY better gifts that way. We had a very small budget this year ($5 per person, we have a lot of people to buy for!) and instead of getting them one little cheapy gift from the store, we were able to get them much more! Here are a few of the gifts we picked up for the people on our list....
Gramps - two books (1), two belts (free with rebate!) Total $1
Grammy - Mexican Train game (3), kitchen shears set (1) Total $4
Papa - Camping dishes set Total $5
Auntie B - teapot & cups (1!!!!), two shirts (1.15) - Total $2.15!
