So, most of what filled Alex's Easter Basket this year, will be saved and re-used for next year. Including the grass.
No, we won't be re-gifting the books and flash cards over again. But, I am saving the plastic eggs that I filled with Junior Mints, as well as the cheapo toys that came filled with jelly beans and sour candies. We have lots of grass being that both Mike and I, as well as my parents gave Alex a basket. I imagine that some of the grass will get used throughout the year to stuff gift boxes, too.
But, rest assured... I will be hitting up the drug stores for their clearance items. Because yes, I am addicted to Holiday clearance sections.
I'm a 26 year old wife and mother. My husband works INCREDIBLY hard as a Restaurant/Bar manager to provide for our family. In addition to that, I work 2 days a week. Our son is 18 months old and we would love to have more children but must wait until I am able to be at home full time. We also just purchased our first home. Here is where I write about the various ways I help our family save money. Comments are always welcomed!
