2010 Gift Box

Since I've been actively looking for deals and spending less money, I've bought things for cheap or gotten stuff for free that Im now putting in a Gift Box.  So when holidays and birthday's roll around I'm prepared.  Because what usually happens is I wait until the last minute and end up buying something lame and not on sale.  This is what I have so far and it is included in my $218 total.  I have no extra budget for gifts yet this year....maybe with this I won't need one.

Swagbucks and Shop At Home are helping as well.  Both are free sites that reward you for doing what you already do online.  Since last month I've earned $15 in Amazon gift cards and $23.22 with little to no extra effort.  It's not a mortgage payment, but it eliminates a need for a gift or Christmas budget :)

I need a bigger box....  and its only January!

Thats kinda funny that your doing a gift box. At Christmas I decided to do almost the same thing. I have Rubbermaid totes for each kid. And use it for fun things that I find throughout the year. For Easter, Birthdays, potty training prizes, bribes.. (LOL)and whatever is left goes toward Christmas. (I hate shopping at Christmas. You have some GREAT Ideas!!! THANKS
