Thinking about Christmas gifts sparked a new idea. Money is tighter and one benefit is the realization many have for the true value of things.

One way to stretch our budget is to only spend money on the postage. When we live far from loved ones, that cost can surpass the actual gift price! Try this idea…it could be special to share things we already have in our house. How many of us are surrounded by possessions? Too many? See if your family is agreeable to doing a treasure hunt in each home to find something that another would appreciate. Piles of sentimental pictures and a note explaining the circumstances and details would delight the family historian. The beautiful untouched journal on the shelf would find a good home with the deep thinker. Great Auntie’s earrings are back in vogue for the teens. Books or magazines have life after one read! A fun tradition might just be waiting to emerge…
