My Frugal Holidays

November 17th, 2010 at 01:36 pm

So I'm almost finished with my holiday shopping! **dances** And I was able to utilize my ever-improving frugal skills to do it for ridiculously little! **dances more** Here is what I've got:

- Gifts for Parents: Each gets a wedding photo album from Shutterfly. I got both for free and only paid shipping.
- Gifts for niece & nephew: Purchased off Amazon.com using swagbucks gift cards and free shipping from Amazon Student.
- Gift for DH's cousin: Purchased from ULTA during a sale using a coupon and got a free bag (which will probably become part of another gift).
- Gift for DH's brother: Amazon.com gift card part of which will be from at least 1 more swagbucks code.
- 2 White Elephant Exchange gifts: Picked up 2 $5 Starbucks gift cards by doing surveys.

Gifts to still get:
- Family Christmas gift exchange: Probably use the gift bag and some free samples to create a bath gift set. Need to find out details of exchange.
- Family Secret Santa: Probably use amazon.com swagbucks. Need to find out details of exchange.

And that's it. DH and I never do gifts for each other, so that covers the holidays.

    Wow very impressive. My kids are all getting $100.00 each, and I will contribute to granddaughter's account, but I also bought her a kitchen set to play with while she and YD are living here (SIL in Afghanistan).
