The sales have been a good time to stock up on toys and books for the coming year. We put them in a box and they get used for presents during the year. A good idea for parties.

  • I do the same thing. You can pick up amazing discounts on Xmas stock in the sales which I put away for the kid’s stockings for the following Xmas. This Xmas just gone they got Xmas pens, snow globes, Xmas art and craft sets and plush dolls all which cost a fraction of the original price.


  • We dont have a box for them but we have whole under stair area (was meant to be hubby’s wine celler) full of toys and gifts ready to go. Im a little bit of shopaholic and always stock up when see great deals and sales. Only problem is trying to keep kids out.


  • Yes, I have two boxes – presents for specific people, and a general box.


  • i want to have box like that! good behaviour chart rewards and little “gifts” for people if they drop in at chrissie or last minute birthday ideas!. i just need to GET that organised.

    • Do it! It really is such a life saver at times. :)


  • A great thing for organised people to do! I keep such purchases in a box in our store room. Very easy.

    • It sure is a good thing to do and it lessen stress when you need presents and is good for last minute invites.


  • A great idea. My problem is that I always forget about them!

    • I have a special box labelled in the laundry cupboard for the toys and books. A good idea to find a place for the toys and books that is impossible to forget and we use this cupboard every day.
