Make your own gifts instead of buying them from the store

I did this!
Tip #57 - February 6, 2015

When a friend or family member’s birthday comes around, consider making them something – a card, a dozen cookies, or soap – that will make your gift much more memorable. Gifts that are made at home can cost less and may help keep the recipient from accumulating things that they may not use. If you can, also include a hand-written card or note with the gift. This will make it even more special than anything you could possibly buy at the mall, plus it saves you money.
