Frugal New Year's Eve With the Kids

Looking for some ways to ring in the New Year with out spending a fortune. Here are some links to make crafts and decorations. I plan to celebrate at home with my family and want to make it as festive as possible with as little money as possible.

Here are some recipes for mock champagne:
equal parts of white grape juice and sprite or 7-Up
equal parts of purple grape juice and sprite or 7-Up
equal parts of white or purple grape juice and ginger ale
2/3 part purple grape juice to 1/3 part sprite or 7-Up

We will watch the ball go down on TV and may even make confetti and put it in balloons we can pop when the clock strikes midnight.

Christmas Stockings and Merry Christmas

I want to wish everyone a Merry Christmas. My mother-in-law has been in the hospital since right after Thanksgiving and is now in rehab for congestive heart failure and that is why I haven't had time to post. I hope the Christmas posts I have done has helped some of you be able to provide a Christmas for your children. If you are still working on Christmas and don't have stockings, here is a webpage that shows you how to make them out of a paperbag. Fill them with some of the printables from my posts, candy, or even homemade cookies. Stay tuned for money saving and grocery lowering ideas soon.
