Do It Yourself Christmas Decor

 

 

Fun Treats & Activities, Green Living, Christmas, Our Planet Since I was a little girl, I enjoyed making my own Christmas gifts and decorations. At school, the students would be asked to make our own Christmas crafts. Do It Yourself Christmas projects were everywhere. One of my most memorable Do It Yourself Christmas décor projects was the year that our family had to move into a small basement while waiting to move into our new home. My mother said that we could not put up our huge Christmas tree as there was not enough space. The ceiling of the basement was just not tall enough. I was so disappointed. My mother was a very creative person. She quickly looked around for some green construction paper. Folding and cutting, she made a paper Christmas tree and stuck it to a wall in the living room. Then, I remembered I was cutting up small circles to be the ornaments on our Do It Yourself Christmas Tree. We also cut up a lot of paper snowflakes to decorate the place. Even as an adult, I enjoyed making my own Christmas decorations. The best part of making these decorations was spending some quality time …

When Grandpa Dies – 4 Thoughtful Sympathy Gifts : One Thing

One of the most thoughtful sympathy gifts, when Grandpa dies, is a comfort candle. The one pictured has a beautiful saying about family and memories to treasure. It doesn’t matter how long he lived: it’s hard to say good-bye when Grandpa dies. Most of these sympathy gifts cost nothing but time. Here’s another beautiful sympathy gift, which I found on a website about cremation urns: “Last Father’s Day, as always, my mother and I went to Grandpa’s grave and put flowers on his headstone,” writes a fellow in Remembering Grandpa. “When we got up to the gravesite, my mom surprised me with a gift. She had a beautiful cremation urn made for me from bamboo that had a photo in the center of it of Grandpa and me. It was the best gift I ever received. Inside, there were Grandpa’s war medals, photos of his restaurant with him in the kitchen, a Pavarotti CD and Grandpa’s medical ID bracelet. Now, I don’t have to worry about forgetting Grandpa or not saying goodbye because I will always have him with me.” Here are a few more sympathy gift ideas for grandpa’s death

10 Things to Start Doing Right Now to Save on Christmas Gifts

10 Things to Start Doing Right Now to Save on Christmas Gifts

Wasn’t it just yesterday that I took down the Christmas decorations from our house?

Well, juuust in case you missed it, it’s almost the end of September. Are you ready to spend a lot of money on gifts?READ MORE How to Save $3K By Christmas Day

If you don’t want to go broke buying gifts and presents, you need to start preparing right now. And we are here to help you. There are 10 things you should do right now to save on Christmas gifts.

10. Make a list of gifts and giftees NOW.

This is the oldest trick in the book. By this time, you should have a list of your giftees and your gift ideas for each of them. You may have more than one gift idea for each person (I personally have 3 choices for each giftee), which is ideal to give yourself a bigger elbow room when shopping.

9. Know exactly how much you’ re willing to spend on each gift.

Your Christmas list should have three columns: your giftees, your gift ideas, and your budget for each gift. This is very important in helping you understand how much you will be spending for Christmas shopping. Never be caught unprepared! Also, feel free to adjust your budget to prevent yourself from spending beyond your means.

8. Do your research. Look for upcoming sales, bazaars, and garage sales.

You don’t have to do your shopping in the mall! Unless there’s a sale (and make sure it’s a really good sale!), you can hunt for gifts somewhere else. There are a lot of places where you can pick up awesome gifts such as bazaars and pop-up markets. Also, keep your eyes peeled for yard sales in the neighborhood. You’ ll never know what treasures you will find!

6. Collect discount cards and coupons.

This is the perfect time to start collecting discount cards and coupons for stores that you’ re planning to visit this Christmas. You don’t have to shell out money for these discounts and you can use them to further reduce your expenses, so it’s a win-win situation.

5. Check if your credit card has special deals for Christmas.

Many banks and credit card companies have special deals and promos just for Christmas. They may offer discounts in selected stores or rebates. But remember: never use your credit card unless you can pay for the same item with cash. Never forget that a credit card is just a tool for transaction, not a genie!

4. Check your existing shopping cards to see how many points you have accumulated.

Oh, and if you have shopping cards, which grants you points every time you buy stuff from their stores, you need to call customer service now and ask how many points you  have accumulated. You may have accumulated enough points to buy 1 or 2 gifts for free!

3. If you want to make gifting more special, start watching recipe and craft tutorials.

The best gifts are often handmade, but not all of us are naturally creative. Don’t lose hope. If you want to give your loved ones baked goodies or personalized handicrafts, now is the best time to start reading Christmas recipes, watching tutorials and practicing. If you wait until the last minute, you’ ll probably give up and just end up buying gifts — not good for the budget, I tell you.

2. Use Saving Made Simple, an app that helps you save money more easily.

For short-term and long-term saving, I use this app to help me determine how much I should save per day, per week, every 2 weeks, or per month to achieve the goal. It’s called  Saving Made Simple&nbsp, and is available for Android (not sure when it will be available for iOS sorry!).

1. Go on a spending diet.

I know there are still 93 long days before Christmas and, surely, there will be days when you will feel like shopping. But don’t do it. Be strong. Of course, you should go ahead and buy stuff that you need, but  stop buying unnecessary stuff, at least until Christmas. Instead of shelling out cash on unnecessaries, keep them instead.

Drooling over the new shade of MAC lipstick? Take out the exact amount of money you would have spent for that lipstick and drop it into your savings jar or envelope (or whatever). Instead of spending on stuff you and your family don’t need, increase your Christmas shopping fund and see your goal fulfilled in no time. Not only that, you will also be learning the delicate art of delayed gratification. *wink*
