Quick and Frugal Kindness
That basket and goodies cost me just under $7. The basket was from the Goodwill and the goodies and fruit were from the store.
I have a thing for baskets, maybe its from a past life or something, but I would fill my house with baskets if I had no self-control. Hmmmmmm, I have self-control with buying baskets but not liquor. Something to explore with a therapist, I guess.
Anyways, Anna's best friend, who we consider a part of our family, Grandfather passed away. Anna had spent quite a bit of time with him. And they were buddies.
As ya know, I'm from da Chicagoland area and in these parts, people don't send over food when someone passes. I think that is a sad thing but its just not the way it is around here. People just give money or flowers. Down south, you will have food in every nook and cranny of your house if someone passes. I've seen it and it was wonderful and a bit scary.
Anywho, the point is it doesn't take a lot of money to let someone know that you care. Make a basket, write a note or give someone a cup of tea and listen. I think being creative more than covers the lack of funds.
Wow, this was way too mushy for me. I'll have to link to porn or something on the next post. Maybe sex baskets?
What is your frugal hack to show da love?
