The holiday hustle and bustle will soon be upon us. It can be a stressful time, but it’s important to keep it in perspective and remember why we go to all the effort. Author Donald E. Westlake said, “As we struggle with shopping lists and invitations, compounded by December’s bad weather, it is good to be reminded that there are people in our lives who are worth this aggravation, and people to whom we are worth the same.”
With that in mind, here are 10 tips for budgeting for gifts and events for those we care about.

My husband and I just moved to Holladay and are excited for all the things our new area has to offer! I started doing some research for free or inexpensive things to do around here, so I thought I’d share some of my findings! I’m always tempted to spend money on fun stuff all summer long, but there are lots of things that don’t require much or any money! I found most of these things after a few minutes on Google. So, if you don’t live near Salt Lake, jump on Google and find some fun things to do near you. Let me know what you find!
