It's just a matter of time before the big toy catalogs come to my home, where my children will spend precious hours peering through the pages, carefully considering which toys are their favorite, and letting me know about them at every opportunity. As adults, we often put aside this "gift planning" in lieu of reality -- times are tough, and we usually put our own wants and desires on the backburner. While this aspect of being responsible (and charitable) should not be diminished, it's also not a bad idea to have some frugal gift ideas in mind -- you know -- in case someone asks?
What is one frugal gift that you would really appreciate this year? I could really use a potato peeler that actually peels (and works just as well for my left-handed daughter as it does for myself). Do you have a gift need that comes in well under the $20 mark?
If you share your answer, you'll be entered to win a $20 Amazon Gift Card! (And yes, that means that if you win, you can buy your own gift if necessary.)
