Countdown to Christmas!

Like we did for Thanksgiving, we are going to have another countdown to Christmas!  The price of everything has gone way up- gasoline, groceries- you name it. We’re all feeling the pinch! So here at Home Ec 101, we’ll be giving you guys some great ideas for handmade gifts, make-it-from-scratch cookies and candy, Christmas decorating advice, and more!

Let us know if you’d like any advice on anything specific. If we can do it, we’ll show you how. One note: Neither of us are particularly good knitters, so don’t ask about knitting. 😉 But I do have a post in the works about crocheting a simple scarf!

    Just pondering today: both sides of my extended family asked for Christmas lists from my family. Do I give the same list to both sides and just hope that they don’t duplicate? My lists are not long, nor are they extremely detailed. . .advice, please, for these extended family giftings!

    I’d love some home made ornament ideas, i’ve got a gift exchange coming up.
