The Generous Wife tip - Build a Collection

Let Lori's tip today spark some ideas for an activity with your husband. Read on:

My family and I made the trek to our storage unit today (we're just about done emptying it out) and took another load home.  In and among all the odds and ends, we came across the boxes of PEZ (candy dispensers) that we've collected over the years.  They are such a hoot.  :)
     I'm not big on spending major bucks for things we don't need, but having a collection has opened the door to some great moments of quality time together as we searched for new additions (and made gift giving easy at times).
     I encourage y'all to start a collection with your husband.  It doesn't have to be expensive.  You can collect movie ticket stubs (they make interesting collages), salt and pepper shakers, or spoons.  You can collect over a common hobby or interest (like collecting books about hymns or old lighthouses).  Just open the door to some fun times looking for something new for your collection.

     Often the search proves more profitable than the goal.  E.L. Konigsburg

Think generous!  Lori <><
