The big topic in our house is how are we going to save money this holiday season (and into the foreseeable future as well). We want to know what things you are doing in your house to be "thrifty" or just cut back a bit. How does this effect your crafting dollars? Homemade gifts for the family? Tell us what you are making. Share your tips and in return, we'll pick a random post to receive our Little Christmas Cottage stamp set so the winner can get started on their handmade Christmas Cards. (That should save a few dollars!)
While all the trend watchers are trying to predict how our Society will change with the recession, this was quite amusing from the New York Times: "A downturn, then, could result in benefits unmeasured by the market. “If people eat out less, the G.D.P. goes down,” Mr. Conley said, “but nothing in the G.D.P. captures what you gain if you cook and eat in a leisurely way with your kids.”
Post your tip before November 7th and we'll do the random drawing on the 8th.
