I haven't participated in WFMW in such a long time I had to scrape the dust off the WFMW header in my photo file.
My tip for today is a quick and easy one. I like to keep a "gift box" in my closet and try to add to it throughout the year. This box is designated as the place to find future gifts, gifts for unexpected kindnesses bestowed, or that inevitable birthday party invitation that could catch the mama off guard if the "gift box" did not exist.
Some great places to add to your "gift box":
TJ Maxx (great toy and book clearances)
Bath and Body Works (just "cleaned" up last month on a killer sale.)
Dollar Tree, or the Target Dollar Spot (especially when they are doing seasonal clearance and the $ stuff goes to 50 cents or a quarter) ***Update -- just heard Target is doing away with their Dollar Spot (boo, hiss) : )
Any toy store clearance table
So, I would encourage y'all to keep a "gift box" hidden in your closet, too. I say hidden because my kids never know when something from the "gift box" may show up as a special treat for one of them!
Have a super-de-duper day and check out more tips with Shannon at Rocks in My Dryer.
