When we were in the mountain town last weekend, my SIL pointed out several items in a gift shop she would like.
I went back over and got two things.
Will take care of her b-day and Christmas!
I struggle getting stuff for her so this is a win!

I got three small heat/cold packs for stocking stuffers and some sort of flashlight/tool for DH.

And some Lysol wipes for DS and DDIL's Stay Healthy basket.

Are you eating ice cream out of a tub over Summer?. Ones with lids? Maybe recycle those tubs and store the Lego sets in them for gifting.
Would be no cost and a way to reuse items. Win/Win.
As a former Kindergarten teacher, love, love, love recycling plastic tubs. Keep in mind that you can always cover it with an cost-effective and age-appropriate contact paper, to make it fun for the kiddos, or nice for a teen, or even to match your decor for pantry storage.

This is a good reminder to stock up on things like this before the Winter hits. Tissues (kleenex) have been in short supply over the Southern Winter.

Found that DH has already bought it for himself:(

Got some cool air fresheners for a friend's husband; I have a scrabble ornament for her.

Did you buy the Scrabble ornament at Hallmark? I’ve been collecting that Family Game Night series.

I picked up three toys for my grandkids recently. I ordered a couple things from Target on Amazon day and then I picked up a couple toys on clearance when I was driving through Wyoming. Seems that not only does Target do a sale this time of year, but Wal-mart does as well to clear things out before the Christmas stuff comes in. I know what one of my granddaughters really wants so I may buy that early as well and have her out of the way.

Slowly filling up my stocking boxes. Went to a glove and sock outlet today, was able to pick up a pair of leather work gloves for my son-in-law, wool socks for my daughter’s stocking, and a cute little winter hat for my grandson’s stocking.

I found some lovely ginger cordial yesterday that will go well in a pack of goodies that I am doing for Mum.
