Spend? That Grinch was on to something

On SALE! BUY now! They will love you even more if you buy them this diamond/phone/computer. This is no time to save money. Spend.

It never stops.

You know what I’m saying. The constant barrage of ads screaming that you must spend spend spend to make everyone happy.

It doesn’t have to be that way, let me explain.

First of all, I recently had a birthday. As a result, I started to think about life and my journey. So, I took some time to go through a box where I save all my special and sentimental treasures, you know the kind I mean. I’ll bet you have one too. Mine is getting full after all these years, and as I looked through the cards, letters, photos and trinkets and jewellery, I thought about how much they meant to me. That made  think about what I could do with them, rather than just collect dust. I wondered if some of my younger family members would appreciate them as much as I have all these years.

So, I had an idea … a really great idea.

I took pictures of me holding each of my beloved pieces. Then I wrote a story about what the piece was, where or who it came from and why it was so special to me. Finally carefully and colourfully wrapped each package, included the story. Now it is placed under my tree, with a label for who I think will enjoy it the most.

I can’t wait to see the smiles on faces as they open these gifts and realise I thought of them, with something that had meant so much to me. Call me a softie but I know they will.

What are you saving it for?

Look around your home, go through the treasures that you have saved all these years and think about how you can bring a smile to someone’s face with a gift that comes straight from the heart.

No price tags, just warm, precious thoughts. Most of all, the Grinch had it right after all.
