Guest Post: How to Save on Last Minute Gifts!

Today’s Guest Post was written by Amber of Jade Louise Designs. She has some GREAT advice for managing all the kid birthday parties, and preventing it from becoming a serious expense!

 

We’ve all been there before; your child gets a last minute call asking them to attend a birthday party! It’s late, the party is the next day, and you’re too busy to make a quick dash to the store for a birthday present! What do you do; just not let your child go to the party? Or do you send your child to the party without a gift feeling like you are sending your child to mooch off the party fun without a present in return? Not to worry, we have a way to help you never have that last minute panic again! It’s what I like to call,

“The Birthday Party Present Stash!”
The way the birthday party present stash works is by scouring the sales for great birthday presents, and stock piling them in your closest or other small and hidden space for those birthday parties your children will be invited for. It’s not an “IF” situation, it’s a “WHEN”. You kids will be invited, and this way you can be prepared and save money at the same time!

FIRST:
After every major holiday and various other times throughout the year, always check out the clearance sections. I always make a point of visiting the clearance toys or games section after every holiday or event like Christmas, Valentine’s day and usually once a month just in case. You will be amazed at what great presents you can find here at a fraction of the price! I’ve found $25 two way radios for only $5! I’ve found a $40 remote control car for only $10! I’ve found an adorable $30 Stuffed Bear for only $3! I’ve found various other fun toys for a fraction of the price.We’ve all been there before; your child gets a last minute call asking them to attend a birthday party!

    This is a great idea! My son is 14 now so this is more tricky since I can’t buy just a toy. ButI can put up a few “cool” t-shirts, sweatshirts & things like that.
