Be Frugal with ID Tag Gifts *Works for me Wednesday*



This Works for me Wednesday is the Frugal Edition, so I wanted to share a fun idea to do with your significant other to celebrate an anniversary, Valentine's Day, or another holiday without spending money: Create pet ID tags to use as key chains.

A couple of years ago, my husband and I had a date night ALONE on New Year's. We thought of this out of the blue and silly idea to go to Wal-Mart and make pet ID tags for each of us to use as key chains. We inscribed the same wording on each of ours but chose different tags. Our key chains read:

" Chris and Lisa
Always and Forever
New Years 2007"

Everytime I see either of them my heart smiles because I am so grateful for our relationship and it is enjoyable to look back on that night. It was extremely inexpensive but a fun idea! You can inscribe whatever sentiment fits your occasion.


It gives extra satisfaction as the tag falls down the dispenser when it's finished. It feels like your own little work of art that you were able to engrave and create in seconds...using ANY words you desire!

I haven't thought about this in awhile but I totally made one of those heart tags with me and my bf's names back in high school.
