Podcast #24- Click here to listen to this week’s podcast- Christmas Collectibles!

This week we try our first “remote” podcast.  Remote meaning that we are recording without both being in the studio.  The results aren’t our usual quality recording but it’s still great.  We begin our collections and collectibles week with our discussion.  Natalie and I discuss our introductory searches into the world of Christmas collectibles.  This included ornaments, figurines, displays, plates, and creches.  Hummel, Coca-Cola, Precious Moments, Avon, Swarovski, and Hallmark Keepsakes are part of our talk.  We plan to get more into the fine differences between collecting regular Christmas things and buying things marketed as collectors’ items.  Stay tuned this week for more details about our quest.

Bills, Boxes, and Blues – Click to hear this week’s Podcast

This week our discussion focuses on holiday bills, boxing up your Christmas wears, and the post holiday blues.  We share thoughts on our own 2011 holiday budgets and plans for saving.  Storage ideas for containers and labeling come up, as well as where to put it all.  We begin our sharing of ideas for dealing with that long time from Christmas to spring (Ordinary Time seems like the best descriptor I can come up with, although it’s not my creation).  As always we want to hear your ideas and thoughts on the topics too.  Drop us an email or post a comment here.  You can also check us out on Twitter and Facebook and share there.  Get your snowmen all lined up for next week!
