Don’t Spend To Much Over the Holidays on Gifts

Christmas is the season of giving, where we buy each other gifts whether it be for friends, families or co-workers. It is nice to give and receive gifts this time of year but you have to remember that you don’t have to buy these crazy expensive gifts to impress people, especially if you don’t have a lot of money. I remember buying a number of pricey gifts for family when I worked construction and had the ability to do so, but when the bank account is small I realized that making gifts or finding a cleaver, creative gift that doesn’t  cost much that shows I know them will be just as good if not even more special. Christmas has taken on the mass consumerism long before I was born, but I think we need to remember it is a time to spend and celebrate with family, friends and those we care about, gifts are nice but not necessary during the holiday season.
