Welcome to the 206th Edition of the Festival of Frugality – Homemade Christmas Gifts Edition!
Posts to the Festival stopped coming in right around 8pm on Friday night. Either y’all were too stuffed from Thanksgiving Dinner, everyone was too busy out on Black Friday or shopping online Cyber Monday, or something’s up with the Festival of Frugality email. So this week’s edition will be short and sweet.
Interspersed amongst the few posts from the early birds, I am going to share some links to sites that show how to make homemade Christmas gifts!
