a penny saved is a penny earned...

I found out a couple years ago that you can get free gift boxes at the Capital Mall. A good friend from church told me about this...

If you purchase $50 worth of merchandise in one day at the Capital Mall, you can take your receipts to the Customer Service desk and they will give you a red gift box, complete with ribbon and tissue paper. Now $50 is a lot of money, BUT, if you're Christmas shopping or school shopping, it can add up fast. Also, if you buy anything at Best Buy or at a jewelry store, or a pair of shoes, it's likely to be over $50, and, you can combine receipts...in other words, $10.00 at one store, $5.00 at another.

It's a small thing...but every penny helps!

Another GREAT idea is buying gift bags from the dollar store..They always have a great selection and they are usually 2 for a dollar around christmas time. Same with cards 4 for a dollar and they are good quality rather then spending 4$ on a card and let's say walmart or hallmark.:)
