With Christmas coming up I thought I’d share this. I have a present cupboard. It is just a little cupboard where I keep spare cards for all occasions as well as presents. Now that we are on one income this has been a great help this year. When I find really good specials throughout the year I buy what I think family members will like and keep them in my little cupboard. I love mid year sales, clearance catalogues and end of year sales. I’ve gotten all sorts of things: jewellery, Swarovski, books, alcohol, tools, perfume and homewares when they are on special. I get perfume at Mother’s Day and put it away from Christmas and birthdays, tools or aftershave at Father’s Day, end of year I stock up on wrapping paper and cards and as my daughter gets older will get decorations. And my husband loves it because we don’t have to go Christmas shopping!
