    Starting anew with 2018 with the gift stash bargains. Harder to do with teens but finding somethings.

    Got really good deals on colouring books and pencil crayons from mary maxims and found a wallet with art supplies at michaels 70 percent off so $5 for that. art supplies always good for generic gifts. still have some pokemon stuff left from last year too.

    are you building a stash

    Looked at winter coats for the grand kids. I will wait until next month to find better deals. I usually can buy a better brand for 1/2 off or more. I did see some ski pants I will buy. They are hard to come by for the bigger kids and they will sell out quickly when marked down.

    totally best to get the deals. I know ds will need more runners and pants in a couple of months or else so keeping an eye out. nice thing about dd being almost grown no buying because she has grow out of it.

    I put a few of my 2017 incoming gifts into the gift stash. A lovely travel mug, that I don't need but could put some fancy tea or coffee or cocoa in for a gift to someone next year. I also culled the gift stash. A couple of pashmina scarves have been in there for 2+ years (they were given to me) and so those went to goodwill. They are lovely, but I wasn't passing them on.

    Actually picked up two antique bowls for my sister at Salvation Army yesterday. Harlequinware for 49 cents each. Very happy as these are hard to come by.
