Sallie & Perkins' Wish List


Hello all! It's us! Sallie & Perkins! It's been awhile since we have gotten a chance to really say hello and visit the blogworld, so I hope you're as excited to see us as we are to post today. With the holidays quickly approaching, we figured what better time than to share a S&P gift guide. These are the top ten on our list this year, and might just give you an idea for the budget-savy nerd in your life.

1. Tightwad apparel and home decor.
All can be purchased here

Because, what better way to get out of debt than to broadcast to the world how broke you are, right?! Hoodies, tee's, perhaps a nice mug to sit on your desk and give you dirty looks if you even think about getting your debit card out? The possibilities are endless!

2. The Water Pebble
Purchase here

This little guy will sit in your shower/bathtub and will help you conserve water. It will monitor your usage on the first shower and then helps you cut back! You can program this bad boy and according to the website "this pebble incrementally shortens its suggested stop time, training you over weeks to use water wisely."

3. Tickets to see Dave Ramsey live
Buy tickets here
This guy inspires us and has really helped us get on track with our debt. How cool would it be to see him live and maybe even have the chance to let him know how he has impacted our lives??

4. Tube-Wringer
Purchase here

Squeeze out up to 35% more toothpaste with this handy contraption. I hate paying for things like soap, toothpaste, etc because they add up so quickly! So if I can do that less often and save a few extra bucks? You know we're asking for one of these!

5. Date Night goodies

For those date nights at home, you've got to keep it interesting and educational, too! So pick up the complete collection of Bill Nye on DVD, or perhaps a periodic table puzzle?! Date nights can be cheap and fun with these new additions.



6. Office Supplies
Most can be purchased here
The budget-conscious person needs the ability to keep their office/workspace organized. All those bills, payments, receipts.... they have to be kept neat in order to get out of debt! Why not splurge on a leather pocket protector? A StarWars talking bank for those extra coins you find in your desk? StarWars light-saber pens? (In case it isn't obvious--Perkins LOVES Star Wars!) Fun items like these make GREAT stocking stuffers.
7. A motivational book

How about the hit e-book "How to buy seemingly worthless knick-knacks at yard sales and sell them on Ebay to get filthy rich" or even an autographed copy of "Who Moved My Cheese"? These can be tough finds, so if you can snag a copy for us, or someone on your list, you'll be the hero of Christmas!



8. Giant Piggy Bank

We gotta' start a college fund for our future children, so why not have somewhere fun to store it??


9. and 10. Something personal
Think about what that nerd in your life realllllly wants. For Sallie it would definitely be a new fanny-pack, possibly with sequins this year. And Perkins, ohhhh he's been dying to get a pair of first-edition vintage Hulk hands. Those gifts make us so excited we just can't help but do a Christmas jig!

I hope this original Sallie & Perkins gift guide will help you buy for the nerd in your life this year.

  8. I'd be afraid to put that water pebble in my shower because I know it would say we're using too much water. But since we live in a condo, and pay a monthly fee that includes our water, I'm good to go for now!

    I actually use to have one of those big crayon banks. I've filled it up a time or two, it was fun!

  13. Ho. Lee. Poop. The pictures and gif in this post are my favorite of all time!! I also love the idea of the Waterpebble -- though I know it would tell me my showers are 31408 minutes too long, it'd be cool to see if we could cut back on our usage some!

  26. I might need one of those toothpaste squeezer things! I know I throw away so much toothpaste because I get frustrated trying to squeeze it out! Also, I am digging your Snoopy shirt, I have a green Santa Snoopy shirt myself. Gotta keep it festive. The Christmas jig will quickly become the new craze to dance! I just know it!
