Happy Holidays can be even Happier by cutting down Holiday spending to save Green and be more Green too!  You'll find there are items you thought you needed to buy, but you really don't have too. You'd be surprised what supplies you already have to create it. Gifts and decorations that are created in an eco-friendly fashion tend to last longer. Plus, the Sentimental Value of creating them yourself for others makes it Priceless.  A Holiday Cheer 1THING your whole family can get into! 

Holiday Items You Don't Need to Buy:
