Confession #3: I love giving gifts.
Gift giving definitely isn't a bad thing... and it's something I truly gain great joy from doing. But being on a tight budget definitely changes things a little.
It doesn't change the fact that I still love to give gifts. But it does change what and how much I give.
While I love to shop for my friends and family... picking out things that remind me of them or things I know they will love... I've learned that it's not always about what I give, but rather how they are thought of. This can mean... a handwritten note instead of a cute handbag... a favorite photo instead of an expensive picture frame... a handmade birthday card instead of a store bought one...
Little by little... changing how I give.
For the month of October I'm doing a 31-day series on "change." Go here to see the full line-up of "change" posts.
