Put the Word Affordable in Holiday Gift Giving

Put the Word Affordable in Holiday Gift Giving

If you look forward to spending the holidays with friends and family but secretly
dread coming up with the funds to buy gifts this season, you can stop sweating
and start saving. Thankfully there are ways to gift loved ones with presents they
will adore without spending a ton of money. You may feel obligated or pressured
to give them a better gift, but the only pressure you’re receiving is most likely the
pressure you’re giving yourself. They certainly will understand if you’re trying to
save up for something that’s important (such as paying off debt, moving, or a
home) and should appreciate what you can afford to give. Be creative and focus
on spending time with loved ones, not spending money on them.

Thrift Shopping for Home D├ęcor and More –
Maybe you have a family member who is need of new furniture in their home but
don’t have time to figure out what they’d like. Instead of buying them a Christmas
gift, offer to be their personal shopper. This will especially be ideal if you enjoy
decorating and have some experience in the interior design realm. They might
be trying to save money themselves and if this is the case ask if you can go
shopping at interior design thrift stores too – you never know what beautiful
treasures, such as a trendy and cheap sofa you may come across for them!

Gift of Time, Not Money –
If you usually do a gift exchange every year with a group of friends, be candid
and explain to them that you’d love to get together, but you can’t afford to give
gifts this year. They’ll definitely understand and perhaps will mention the same
thing to the rest of the group, which will give everyone a break from finding gifts
for one another. In a way you’ll be helping your other friends save money as well!
Plus you’ll be able to enjoy one another’s company without rushing around last
minute trying to figure out what gifts to purchase. It’s now time to relax and enjoy
one another’s company without exchanging gifts, which is just is nice.

Handmade is Closer to the Heart –
Often times it is a lot nicer receiving a handmade gift as opposed to another
top or piece of jewelry that will be left unworn. Think outside the box and create
a memory box out of a shoe box filled with favorite photos, a crocheted scarf,
or a personalized gift basket that are all affordable and personalized gifts. A
handmade gift will definitely be more memorable and not to mention more
affordable to make!

Sierra is a freelance writer who runs her own business called Paige One. She
enjoys making handmade gifts for loved ones and is trying to save her money
this holiday.

Little Pim ~ French

Little Pim is a great online learning tool to help younger children under the age of 6 learn another language.

Children from birth to 6 years old are sponges and are able to learn more between those ages. Scientific research shows that learning a foreign language comes naturally for children when they start at an early age. Little Pim is the brainchild of Julia Pimsleur Levine, an award-winning documentary filmmaker and mother. Julia was inspired by her own bilingual childhood; she learned French fluently by age six and is the daughter of Dr. Paul Pimsleur, who created the Pimsleur Method, the popular language learning program for adults. The Entertainment Immersion Method® integrates the latest scientific research regarding kids’ language learning and brain development. Pimsleur Levine developed the series with leading neuroscientist Dr. April Benasich, director of the Rutgers Infancy Studies Lab.
Each of our educational DVDs has a unique, child-friendly theme, such as eating, playtime and feelings. The method teaches 360 words and phrases, providing the essential building blocks for language learning. A child only needs 500 words to be considered “conversational” in a language. Babies, toddlers and kids respond enthusiastically to Little Pim’s format, which combines animated and live-action videos.
At Little Pim, we understand how children learn, so our videos are segmented into 5-minute episodes to accommodate a young child’s attention span. Simple sentences are broken down into easy-to-understand parts and reinforced through repetition by native speakers.
Little Pim has some great DEALS check out the WEBSITE for more info!!

I received the Little Pim French~ disc 1 Eating and Drinking CD for review.
I thought it would be great for my daughter since she is currently taking french in school and can use all the help she can

She has watched the DVD many times already and has already picked up some new words in french to share with her class when she gets back to to school. 
She says its fun to follow along and learn with Little Pim.

In this French DVD for toddlers, babies, and preschoolers see Little Pim and friends making and eating food while having a great time discovering new tastes. DVD 1 introduces more than 60 French words and phrases for meal times.
For more info on Little Pim and the more than 10 languages you can choose from to learn check out

This program is AWESOME for those who cant pay the
full balance of a HUGE bill all at one time and by the due date every month!

I joined this program almost a year ago and think its so awesome!
I don't have to worry about a due dates, bills, or even disconnect notices every month! 
With Power to Go, I sign into my account (when i get an email or a Text alert) and add to my balance!
I can also check online and see how much electric I have used. and how many days of electric I  have remaining. 
If I see the daily balance is down to 7 days or less I add funds to my account.

There is now, no reason you should ever have your electric service disconnected. 
With the Power To Go plan you know exactly how many days your balance will give you of electricity:)
I give this electric service plan a 5 out of 5.

Direct Energy's customer service is awesome. 
They answered all my questions very clear and in a way I could understood.when I first signed up :)
You can add a balance to your account online, over the phone or at a pay station. If you pay over the phone or at a pay station there is a $1 fee to add money to your account.

If you do get the power turned off cuz you go negative balance, make a payment and the service is back on with in 2 hours of payment.

Since i have been a member I have saved MORE THAN $300 A MONTH in energy costs! 
I like that i can check the amount of electric I have used and I know what it costs for me to wash clothes or run the vacs thru the house. 

I am using $1.88 to $4 a day for electric!
I was paying $400 to $500 a month before the power2go!

There is no charge to change electric companies in Texas.

If you live in Texas and want to save more on your electric service I recommend Direct energy and the Power to go plan!

disclosure~ I am a member of direct energys power to go program and i know lots of Texans who could use the lower rate, the savings and great sign up bonus!!

Kylie Minogue's The Abbey Road Sessions

The Abbey Road Sessions is an orchestral album by Australian recording artist Kylie Minogue, released on 24 October 2012 by Parlophone. The album features sixteen tracks, all radically reworked, spanning Minogue's 25 years in the music industry, as well as a new song titled "Flower", which was released as a single to support the album. The album was recorded at London's Abbey Road Studios with Minogue's band and a full orchestra during November 2011
Kylie Ann Minogue, known simply as Kylie, is an Australian singer, recording artist, songwriter, showgirl, and actress. After beginning her career as a child actress on Australian television, she achieved recognition through her role in the television soap opera Neighbours, before commencing her career as a recording artist in 1987. Her first single, "The Loco-Motion", spent seven weeks at number one on the Australian singles chart and became the highest-selling single of the decade. This led to a contract with songwriters and producers Stock, Aitken & Waterman. Her debut album, Kylie (1988), and the single "I Should Be So Lucky", both performed well on international charts, particularly in Australia and the United Kingdom.

For the U.S. promotion of the album, Minogue will perform on Dancing with the Stars on 13 November 2012 and The Tonight Show with Jay Leno on 14 November 2012.

I like the CD is upbeat and peppy.
