2011 aka The Year of $$$

Not only am I getting married this year, which also includes an expensive honeymoon, but this is the year that me and most of my friends turn 30. The big 3-0. One of the few birthdays other than 21 that requires a big celebration of sorts. Thanks society. Some of my friends are doing their own big things, some of my friends are doing nothing at all, and some will just have a dinner or house party to celebrate. At any rate, most of these celebrations will require funds.

On top of this, quite a few of my friends are having babies this year. Some are also getting married. Bridal showers, bachelorette parties, weddings, baby showers. All of these things require a level of spending.

Don't get me wrong, I am beyond excited for these milestones in all of our lives. I am also very blessed to have all of these people in my life to share in these joyous times. However, my budget is not excited for all of this excess spending.

Any thoughts on how to save money while still getting worthwhile gifts for my fabulous friends?

Since your Money Tree keeps sprouting fresh branches, I'm choosing to believe that it's The Year of $$$ for more positive reasons. ;)
