Frugal footnotes:

Here are some more frugal tips to save money with homemade gifts.

 

- Everyone has something that they can make that can be turned into a gift.  A plate of
chocolate cookies, with the recipe, is a gift.  Or you could put the ingredients into a jar with the recipe.
 
- If you have skills and talents, look patterns and types of items you can make.  Whether your skill is woodworking or quilting, there are small items to make that can be appreciated as gifts.
 
- Barter for gifts.  Exchange babysitting for handmade items.
 
- Give coupons for services as gifts.  You can give and exchange everything from babysitting, to meals and lessons.
