    When going through boxes of Easter items yesterday I found 3 Nivea lip balms that are now in my "gift closet" box! :) Will make nice stocking stuffers!

    I hit Target post Valentine clearance too but it was pretty picked over. Got a little gold tin mailbox for DS's Easter basket - I'll fill it with funny notes, jokes, etc. and a package of gift tags. They were $0.10 each! :)

    Back from the mall. Got some boxer and sleep shorts for DH. I got make up sponges and eyebrow brush for DD for in her stocking. I also got lovely body wash for 1/2 price at the store. The gift boxes are starting to look ok. Still a ways to go but not too bad for February.

    Woo Hoo, I was able to finish up with 2 of the 4 grandchildren for this year, including Christmas. It was so funny. I showed up for dinner yesterday at my middle sons house (parents to the oldest and youngest grandchildren) and both kids had their lists at the ready. I have twelve people to buy for and their are 12 months in the year so I've divided it up to take care of one person each month. I buy this persons birthday, Easter, and Christmas gifts during that month to include stocking stuffers.

    I was also able to finish the gift buying for the year with both of my parents. Parents are sooooo hard to buy for. I refuse to gift them money because they end up giving it to my youngest brother who refuses to be a productive member of society. They needed new flooring in one room as well as new tires on their Jeep so I bought both. I installed the new wood laminate floors and all of the baseboards and moldings this past week. I ordered the new tires and will bring their Jeep in tomorrow to have the new tires installed, rotated, balanced and aligned. I also had the air conditioner fixed in the Jeep since it went out a few weeks ago. I told them Happy Mothers & Fathers Day, Happy Anniversary, Happy Birthday Mom & Dad and most importantly Merry Christmas.

    DH took a browse in my "She Cave" this morning and opened a nice large cabinet that he was thinking of using to store his hunting stuff in and I turned on him like a rabid animal and told him that "THIS IS MY GIFT CABINET". He quickly found another place to store his hunting stuff.

    4 Down and 8 to go.....................I'm on a roll.

    News travels fast and the other two grandchildren had their Mom promptly send me their wish lists, complete with pictures and where the best deals were to be found on said items. LOL I finished with grandson #2 and almost finished with granddaughter. Wow, I'll beat my old record of finishing up by June 1st last year. I've put my non perishable and non food holiday prepping on hold to get this done while it's still fresh. I'll move those to June, July & August.

Pizza slices and you put sitckers on them that dress your pizza toppings and they are cards with envelopes and got some cupcake ones and then tonight at Dollar Tree I got some scarfs. Flowers on some and then stripes on others. 2 older nieces and beauty shop ladies will get some.
