Some months are filled with birthdays of friends and family members.
This can get very expensive if one goes out and buys gifts for all the birthday "kids."
Plus, this is trick-or-treat month and that means buying candies for the little goblins.
Who wants to begrudge kids that little bit of spooky happiness? Not me.
Living on a limited budget helps a person get creative.
For one of several recent birthdays, good ol' chocolate chip cookies came to the rescue.
I packed them in a nice little tin, picked up for pennies at a yard sale.
Then, a $10 gift card to a favorite coffee place completed the gift.
Not a major budget breaker, by any means, but, like this blog, it was a gift "from the heart."
Today we are joining Thrifty Things Friday on Diann's blog, The Thrifty Groove.
Her co-host is Linda at A La Carte. Thanks for hosting, girls!
