With the economy squeezing all of our budgets this year, I thought I'd pass on what my family is doing this year. In order to save money, and be "green" we are having a recycled Christmas. This requires us to buy gifts that have been used. That means shopping on e-bay, pawn shops and second hand stores. It also means buying re-built i-pods. We are also making gifts. I am coping family home video from the past 20 years for members of my family. My wife is transferring her parents' favorite old recores onto cd's and even on i-pods. We are actually having so much fun doing this, and we are saving a lot of money.
It is something to think about if you need to save some money this year.
