5 Ways to Save Money This Holiday Season - EPL

I've always been a huge fan of the library and now I'm a huge fan of their newsletter. It's got so much great information, recommended books and interviews with your local librarian. Great job Edmonton Public library!

This month they've given 5 ways you can cut your holiday spending:

1. Make your own egg nog at home. And cookies. And gingerbread houses. Pick up the how-to guides free at your local library.

2. Make your own decorations and Christmas cards at home instead of buying them at the store.

3. Give loved ones a Library card for Christmas - at only $12/year for adults, you'll be helping them to save money all year. Pick up a gift card at your local branch.

4. Don't rent - borrow. Music, movies, video games and of course books. EPL carries everything you care about, so avoid the high rental fees by picking up fun for free.

5.5. Avoid the high-priced enterainment options - and the cold - by staying home. Pick up a sing-along video game from EPL and find out if the next Justin Bieber is in your living room!

What great practical ideas! I'm going to make a vat of eggnog- I forgot how addictive that stuff is.
