Suzanne, thanks so much for posting this!
Every year our family (three kids 17, 14, and 11, plus
dh & me) adopt a family from the sa tree at the mall and
spend money out of our christmas budget – which is
smaller and smaller each year! – to buy the gifts. this is
money that we would normally spend on each other.
as it’s gotten harder and harder to stretch our dollars
to cover a family this way, i’ve searched for other,
equally satisfying options. i believe your idea is it!
cindy in ks – makin’ those pennies squeal 😉
