Feeling the pinch this holiday season? Here is a gift suggestion for or from the cash-strapped consumer who still has his sense of humor intact: The Broke is Beautiful gift basket.
This easy to assemble kit has everything for the person who has nothing! First: get a basket from Freecycle. Decorate with a ribbon from one of last year's gifts. And fill with:
1. Autographed copy of Broke is Beautiful by Laura Lee. The book that celebrates the resourcefulness and creativity that the cash-strapped develop in spades. A welcome mat for the wealthless that reminds each reader that there are still lots of reasons to celebrate life and to feel like a proud, useful being no matter what your income level.
2. Ramen noodles 20c per pack
3. Generic brand boxed macaroni and cheese 79c per box
4. Optional extra: for those of legal drinking age: A king can of budget friendly beer. (I got the one in the picture for $1.58)
The whole thing is just $16.58. ($19.58 if you have the book shipped and need to add postage.)
