A Step Inside bio picture
  • Welcome!…

    to “A Step Inside”… our personal family blog, documenting the craziness of our every day life.. Sit back, enjoy, laugh, and share in the road we travel..

    I'm Bridget.. A SAHM (stay at home mom), mother of 3, and a follower of Christ. I'm also a photographer, and passionate about life.. I hope to share that w/ you too! Life isn't always perfect, but it's perfectly created in His plan. I'm beyond thankful for God's grace and His many blessings!

Stock up on Gifts!

I read recently about an idea that I really enjoyed..   If you have school aged children, then chances are they are invited to birthday parties of their friends, classmates, etc.  Often times when you add up the $10-$20 spent on gifts for each of those parties, it adds up, and fast!  A solution to still giving the great gifts that our kiddos love, is to watch the sales & stock up!  I look for age appropriate games and crafts that I know Kaylor would love, which means her friends should enjoy too. Then when the time comes for a party, I can pull out my “stock of kid gifts” for her to choose from, and done!  This doubles for coming in handy so you’re not rushing at the last minute to go gift shopping.

After holidays is a great time to do this.  For example, right now Amazon.com has toys up to 70% off!  I did so today, and bought four gifts w/ retail prices totaling $62.96  for just $21.96.  Four gifts, done!

Let me know if you try this out too…  This can obviously be done for others too, not just kids.. I’d love to hear what great deals you find 🙂

I do this when shopping in the stores. I already have a Christmas gift for next year! 🙂 However, I haven't bought anything online in advance. I will have to look around for some deals! Thanks for the tip!
