Happy Holidays from us to you folks.
One of the things I have advocated this season was to try and NOT spend your hard earned finances at big box retailers. If you’re going to buy, then try and buy better from a local store, a quality outlet that cares. Lower prices many times means lower quality and lower wages. Everyday lower prices as they say is the epitome of this.
Instead, I advocate making your own gifts. This is an ideal way of showing those you care for that it’s worth your time to make it. If you can’t make it or don’t have time. Try and find it made by people near you. These small steps speak very loudly.
Now, if you’re going to eat out, and you’re going to say an italian restaurant, do you really think the Olive Garden is the best you’re going to get? Probably not, If you’re going to spend a good amount on something, why not spend just a little more and get something superb for your money?
One thing I’ve learned over the years, not always does it have to cost a lot, but it tends to be a LOT better if its just a little more.
Hope this proves to be the case for you, Buy local buy from quality companies and try to remember, it’s the giving, not the buying that counts.
Best wishes for the season.
