Don’t get me wrong, I love the holiday season as much as the next gal—the parties, the gifts, the excuse to spike any beverage over 160 degrees… But you know what I don’t love? Waking up on January 1st, ready to kick off that very first day of the New Year, and realizing my bank account is experiencing a bit of a post-holiday deficit. If any of this sounds familiar to you, fear not, Wildfang! Because this year, I’ve come up with what I call the Super Handy, Ridiculously Awesome Broke Girl’s Guide to Gifting! With just $200, you can score rad gifts for everyone on your list and still have enough money leftover to pay your rent.

  1. I don’t think the author really knows what being broke really means. Spending $200 with money “left over” for rent is not being broke. Being broke is closer to not having the last $200 needed to pay rent. I like the products Wildfang makes…or, I like to look at them. It’s a shame that very few things on this website are really affordable.
