Tis' the Season...

...for busy, over loaded schedules, lots of baking, lots of giving, lots of family time, and even lots of sickness! December is such a blessed month really and I wanted to let everyone know that at the Ward house we take the month to spend as much time doing holiday things as possible. Unfortunately, that also means that I won't be around blog land as much! I do miss you guys when I stop posting so, I will be in and out all month long. More towards posting events and giveaways more then deals and savings tips.

I hope most of you already are done your holiday shopping.
  • IF NOT STOP BUYING until the 2nd week of December. This is when prices are the lowest until after Christmas. 
  • Remember food is a great present for anyone yummy cookies or breads melt anyone's heart. Not to mention this can be made for a fraction of the cost of a store bought present
  •  If your crafty (which I have never claimed to be haha!) Get on Pinterest and find an awesome handmade gift to give this year.
  • Don't forget that family Pictures in a nice frame will make any grandparents Christmas! (Check out shutterfly, tiny prints or other photo processing places for great deals)

Upcoming Events:
  • The Nifty Thrifty Lady Reader Appreciation Giveaway  12/5/13-12/10/13 
  • Get a L.I.F.E. Early Bird Ticket Special ends 12/7/13, there has been a great response to this just remember that seating is limited so grab your tickets (at a steal!) today.
  • If your are in the Chambersburg area there is a great Vendor Event happening this Sunday!

  • On school evenings when there is not much to do our family watches ABC Family's 25 Days of Christmas sometimes with Hot chocolate and popcorn;) Here is the schedule for a quick reference
  • The Hagerstown tree lighting is December 5th with lots of great activities for the little ones and yummy treats! 
  • December 23 Leitersburg Cinemas will be showing Rudloph and Frosty the Classics at 10:00am these are free showings with free hot chocolate, candy canes and ballons!
Lots happening!

Enjoy December!
