Works for Me Wednesday 12/30

Birthday Party Gifts
I don't know about you, but one of the most frustrating parts of all the birthday parties my children get invited to is finding time to get a gift. In my hectic scheudule I end up forgetting about the gift until the last minute and I have to make a quick trip to Walmart on the way to the party and just get whatever is on the shelves and I usually spend way more than I would like.

Several years ago, I created a birthday gift box. As I see cool possible birthday gift on sale I pick it up and add it to the box. After Christmas sales are the best times to stock up. After a trip to JoAnn's and Walmart yesterday I came home with 2 craft kits and a bubble bath/lotion gift set for under $5.00 each. I am all set for the next 3 birthday parties. Works for me!


  1. Cool! I do this too! Makes for even better gifts. People like stuff that looks like it took some creative thinking!

  2. I need to start doing this! Great tip.
