I love shopping. Really, I do. But I also love to find ways to save while shopping. I consistently look on deal websites, Facebook and Twitter updates, and follow deal bloggers so I can get my family quality items and put away nice things for Christmas and birthday presents. These hard working people do all the work for me. It is wonderful! I could never find the deals on my own without their help.
Do you do this too? Which blogs do you especially find helpful?
I also keep a gift bin — a large plastic bin in our garage that I put gifts in. Inside the large bin I place gifts for specific people, but I also put back up gifts in the bin just in case we get invited to a last minute birthday party or an unexpected guest arrives for Christmas. With this back up gift bin I know that I will always have something when I need it.
Do you have a gift bin or gift closet that you store gifts in?
I want to share a few things that we do here in our home while shopping.
