Hip2Save This Holiday Guest Post Submitted By Reader Salina…

Here’s an easy Christmas gift for people who have everything, or for family flying back home! My grandmother came up with “money bags” a few years ago since most of my family flies in for the holidays and can’t take big items home on the plane. Instead of just putting money in a card, she places rolled bills tied with festive ribbons in a ziploc bag adorned with some sort of Christmas cut-out. The notes on top vary, which is fun because you can be as creative as you want. The one pictured above was for my little cousin Sam and reads:

Gingerbread men with yummy icing, are oh so good and extremely enticing.
I set out to make you a dozen or two, but time ran out so now what to do?
SO instead of cookies I tied with a bow, your own personal serving of holiday dough!

It’s a super cheap, super easy idea and brings a smile to everyone’s face… plus, who doesn’t love money?
