I’ve come up with some fun, cheap and SIMPLE ideas for you! One of the bloggers at HomeTalk came up with an adorable Thanksgiving Table Runner. I loved the idea so much that I purchased paints and a runner so we can make our own!

    I simplify Christmas by staying home I’m shopping online not fighting the crowds of the Christmas holiday

    Lists! They simplify everything so well, especially in such a busy season with traveling, shopping, occasionally taking care of chores at home, etc. I wonder why I don’t make them more often!

    Instead of running around looking for a gift for the children’s teachers the school suggested parents donate to a college fund set up for low income children. Great idea !

    I simplify Christmas by buying gifts throughout the year, as I see items on sale. Next year we do plan to cut the number of gifts back for our three kids, quality more than quantity.

    For several years we have drawn names among our siblings. This cuts down on a lot of shopping.
