Some Gifts on the Frugal...

Recently we needed a "thank you/appreciation gift" of sorts. 
In keeping on-the-frugal, Swagbucks was able to assist me once again!

Search & Win
In case you haven't heard about Swagbucks, it's just a simple toolbar that you download. Not unlike Google or Bing or any of the others. You can use it as your main search engine/toolbar or if will show up underneath your main toolbar.

Once it's downloaded and installed, you simply do your internet searches through it. Occasionally, you will win Swagbucks. These Swagbucks can be used to purchase Amazon gift cards, Paypal gift cards, and so much more!
There are also several other ways to earn by watching advertisements, surveys, and more.

(The above is a referral link and in the event you decide to use it- I'm oh-so-grateful!)

With Amazon credits, I've recently been able to buy a book that was a gift as well as use a trial membership on Amazon, a coupon, and gift cards to score another gift for a sweet little baby.

On another note- I also recently needed to put another gift together and needed a pretty basket.
(I purchased some unique jars and made jams to place inside.)
This time it was Hobby Lobby to my rescue!
Hobby Lobby continues to offer their 40% off coupons (it's like Christmas in August!) on their website.
So- a $10 basket can be picked up for $6!

Now I'm looking for another frugal gift for a teen girl.
I'm sure I will think up something clever....and frugal ;-)
Where there's a will, there's certainly a way!
***
There is such blessing in giving, even if it's only on a small scale.
Acts 20:35  ...remember the words of the Lord Jesus, how he said, It is more blessed to give than to receive.

Donna, thrift stores are a great place to find baskets as well! Ours are usually .50 to $1 each!

I should mention that dd and her best friend just made presents for their other friend's birthday. They made her a necklace, bookmarks, a friendship bracelet, and a t-shirt (they decorated an inexpensive t-shirt with sharpies).

Thanks for the tips Brandy!

SwagBucks is a very recommended get-paid-to website.
