Help 7 Weddings this year
 
And I'm on mat leave. I can borrow dresses from my sister (thankfully I'm not in any of the parties) but my husband is a groomsman in one, one wedding is out west and how do I afford gifts?

make them. etched last name on pyrex dishes(google there are good tutorials). i usually do 1-2 of those and some unpaper towels, sometimes a kitchen wetbag also. everyone always raves about them.

January is traditionally a great month to get linens and great clearance items. I have 2 pizza stones all set for the next weddings we get invitations too. Otherwise, I tend to be really cheap I get them thank you notes and stamps.

Host a pampered chef party. I only had 3, maybe 4 people, at my party (well it was a "catalog party" so they just ordered at home! even easier) and I got in my rewards for it somewhere around $300 of merchandise for $49, plus two free cookbooks, and all of that was holiday gifts for 5 people!

Use the Bed, Bath & Beyond coupons. A lot of folks register there and you can use more than one in a visit as long as there is the equivalent of 1 item per coupon. Oh yeah, and they tale expired ones too. Good luck!

This! Pyrex dishes are on clearance at TJMaxx right now, $2! I can cut the etching stencils for you, or you can buy stencil kits. Cheap. Easy. Awesome. They don't even have to be Pyrex, just glass - think drinkware, dessert plates, picture frame glass, etc. I did a bunch of stencils for my SIL that she used to etch votive candle holders for thrifty Christmas gifts. They turned out awesome, for 50 cents a piece plus the etching cream!
