5 Days to Grow an Attitude of Gratitude | Day 5

Thanksgiving Devotional: Day 5 One way we help our budget is by shopping at thrift stores, garage sales, Facebook Marketplace, etc. for birthday or Christmas gifts for our kids. We have gotten some great deals on some super fun items. The boys usually get a few gifts and an Amazon gift card to use towards something they are saving up for. We were shopping around for one of our sons and found a really neat 3-D puzzle at a thrift store. He loves those! It was $1 and taped up like items usually are so they don’t lose all the pieces.

I wanted to be that welcoming homemaker who handled visits—scheduled or not— with grace and warmth. The Hostess is the Grossest The entire first week we were in our new home, I made sure to shower every day, reasonably do my hair and makeup, and get dressed in real clothes.
