Gift Giving

The festive season is here again The buying has in earnest begun Bargains, bargains I look for In the morning rush towards the door I enter the race of giving gifts To climb the social ladder swift Then on to buy some old stuff Dressed in rich festive puff For nephews and nieces Some colourful pieces With decorative labels Though bought cheap under the table For Uncles and Aunts I visit some notorious haunts To buy budget deals Though horrible I feel

Hey, don't feel bad, dearie. I am so cheap, the day after Xmas I take money I get from hubbie for xmas and I buy the cheapest sales I can find to give my family and friends for NEXT christmas. Kind of my "after Xmas tradition" I LOVE bargains. Luv, Andrea

Those gifts are not easy to come by...It is hard to find something that won't break the budget and yet be an acceptable gift..My husband's grandmother use to start in January to buy her Christmas gifts..She would purchase then hide away toys for all the grandchildren.."Twins In Name Only"was hard to come up with but once I had a whisper of which way to go then the Limerick came easily..Thanks for visiting and getting a chuckle..Sara
