Great Idea – Stock Up on Gifts!

After every holiday and at the end of every season there are discount sales on merchandise.  Never, and I mean never, pay full price for anything!  And if you can pick up something that you need, or you know you can use for a gift for someone on clearance, or at the thrift store or a garage sale, do it!

 

Gift Storage Box

 

I keep a box up in my closet.  A cardboard works for me.  When I see something that I know I can use for a birthday, special occasion, Christmas or any event that comes up, I place it in this box and put it up on a shelf in my closet.

Now depending upon the space that you have and the conditions that you have to deal with to store extra items, you may want to get a plastic container to protect your purchases. It is not helpful to purchase something for a great price and have it get ruined.

Some of the things that I gather for this box are containers from the thrift store that I can use to put in homemade bath or food products, note pads, note cards, recipe cards and bath items are always good to pick up because you can make up a bag or basket for someone. I also like to pick up on picture frames, especially ones that I can paint a color that would work for the recipient.

This has saved me many special and ‘expensive’ last minute trips to the mall to get a gift.  I think it is a ‘good idea’!

Thanks for stopping by!

  1. I used to have a stash of gifts on hand like this, but I think I’ve used almost all of them up! I like your list of things to gather. Candles are always good thing to have around too. I should have it better organized like yours. Great idea, especially for those last-minute hostess gifts!
