I love gift giving & searching for the perfect fit (for the recipient as well as my budget), but here’s your reminder/permission that #holiday gift giving shouldn’t come with stress or credit card interest.
I try to give a combination of the items equally wanted and needed, while sticking to an extremely tight budget. Also, shopping second hand helps me know my purchases are helping others help themselves.
Yesterday at Sunday school we had a refresher on the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King’s writing on #materialism . It was a timely reminder that I needed too, because w/4 kids and 1 more a week away, I too feel that overwhelming pressure to give them everything. But if that means working more & time away from them, what’s the point?! Honestly, it’s just stuff they’ll quickly grow out of and end up tossing into the trash can.
So if you can afford tickets or memberships, give the gift of family experiences ❤️ Otherwise share your talents, your cooking, your time, your love. You really are enough. #reducereuserecycle#consignment#christmasgifts#christmas#financialfreedom#financialliteracy
