Resourceful Living

I can see you now looking around your house thinking, wow, what do I get the kids this year, they have everything. Christmas is a time when our already full houses seem to get even “fuller”. I get it, watching your child unwrap on Christmas Day and their happiness cannot be measured. Though there are many things you can do to limit your “stuff” but still have a magical Christmas.

I have organised into ages, some ideas you can do to limit just buying toys for the sake of buying toys.
