A great Christmas is still possible, even when you have a tiny budget for Christmas gifts! These are all free gifts you can make from items you have around the house and that anyone would be thrilled to receive!
Christmas is a wonderful time, gifts are exchanged between loved ones, good food is made and eaten, and the twinkle of Christmas lights gives everything a warm, cheery glow.
But when you're broke, it can also be a little stressful... And who wants to be stressed at Christmas?
A zero money Christmas doesn't sound like too much fun, but that's where we are this year. Money is tight now that I'm staying home, so we had to get a little creative!
But we didn't want our friends and family to feel like we didn't care, or that we didn't put in any effort.... Fortunately, these handmade gifts are sure to thrill anyone who is lucky enough to receive one on my list or yours!
Maybe you're in the same situation? If so then you're in the right place! I put out a series of posts on how to have a ZERO MONEY Christmas after scouring the web to find these fabulous gifts that cost nothing to make using things you already have around the house!
And I made sure they were things people would really want to get and would enjoy using. Now I'm sharing them all here in one place so you don't miss anything!
