staying Frugal in the corporate world

August 9th, 2007 at 04:30 am

My assignment: put a basket together as a gift for a job well done. Budget $250


So...I spent $225 on the hotel and meal...and had $25 left for the presentation...

Went to goodwill and bought a basket $1.99, candlestick holders (2 X .49= .98) and 2 pretty wine glasses = 2X.79 (1.58)...then, off to walmard for a 2 pack of 'on-sale' cream linen napkins (2.50) two pillar canlesticks .40= .80 and a couple pieces of tropical fruit = $3...a nice bottle of wine on sale...$7.49 ...I had a clear plastic gift bag and some tissue on hand....(hand washed the glasses and candlesticks..and used pledge on the gift basket).....so well within budget, I was able to maximize the budget and present a gorgeous, expensive looking gift. and it will be our little secret that Goodwill and Walmart were the key suppliers of the extras on a nice corporate gift!!!! Wink

The recipient was so proud of the gift that she refused to open the wrapper until she got home so her husband could see!!!!
