Simple Times- crafts for poor people by Amy Sedaris

But why go to the trouble of giving a handmade gift?  Is it the fact that it’s much cheaper than buying something that a person actually wants?  No, probably not.  Does it have something then to do with the fact that making a gift is a good way to get rid of the odds and ends you don’t have the energy to toss out?  For argument’s sake, let’s say no.  How about the idea that crafting a gift gives the illusion that you are “artsy” or doesn’t require you to leave the house to shop, or is a good opportunity to practice doing something you are hoping one day you will be good enough at to turn a profit on? (p. 191)
