Budgeting & Thrifty

The Present Hoard

Today I’ve added another goodie to the present hoard. I love my little present store! It’s an easy way to spread the cost of gift buying, grab things when they’re on offer and ensure I’m organised and prepared!

Little Man’s first birthday is in September and Boo’s is October, and presents for both are sorted. It does help that as they’re so young I can pretty much buy them anything I think they’ll enjoy, without the worry that they’ll beg for something completely different a week before their birthdays!

My latest addition to the hoard was a Nosey Norman book for Little Man. Boo has got Ernie the Eye Monster, of the same series, which he loves and giggles at every time we read it, so when I saw Norman in The Works for £2.99, I grabbed it (I do love the bargains in The Works, and my first job was actually for them, so I do like them :-)).

As well as things for the children, I buy for other kids throughout the year, so if I see a 50% ELC sale on, chances are I’ll pick something up for someone! Even better, I can shop there via Kidstart – my bargain hunter nature gets very excitable at this prospect!

Obviously, I always have cards and gift wrap in, too! That’d clearly be something I’d recommend bulk buying, too – cheaper that way and you’d be well prepared.. 😉

So what about you? Do you have a present storage area?
