Used presents>? Where do you stand?

Hello everyone
Welcome to my blog!
Its getting nearer and nearer to Christmas and most of us more than ever, are feeling the pinch.
Whilst chatting to DIL 2 we got on to the subject of Secondhand/used items being used as gifts.  I haven't really considered this before.  Instead I have struggled and got in to debt (which takes a year to pay off) to but what ever it was my children have wanted to open on Christmas day.  NO MORE!!!  As part of my drive to save money and spend less I am prepared to give good quality items as presents.

Of course there will be new items as and when i can afford, with the smattering of handmade goodies too!
It doesn't mean I don't care about the person receiving the item. On the contrary.  I wish to give them the best gift I can afford. AFFORD being the word.  I will not get into debt to please other people.  i wont be worrying come January how I'm going to afford to repay.   It is quite acceptable to me and I would gladly and happily accept a present bought from the charity shop.  How do you feel?
bye for now
