The Best Gift Ever


The Best Gift Ever Given

When asked "what's the best gift I have ever given?"
I honestly have to say the ones that are free of course.


This time of the year is about giving, but in the rush of life, giving for many has become quantity over quality and the translation of giving is lost.  I'm there with the majority, I wrapped countless gifts the other night, many for my children, knowing that they will tear through them in a matter of seconds on Christmas morning only to move swiftly onto the next.  Fortunately for me, I'm pretty savvy with superstacking coupons, deals and rebates and many of the gifts have been attained for next to nothing.  I love seeing my children on Christmas morning smiling from ear to ear and playing with the toys that they had so wished for, however, the best gift are the gifts that I "GIVE"to others less fortunate. 

Whenever a deal, steal or freebie comes up I make sure to stock up and at the end of the year I go through my stockpile and start sorting them for donations.  There are so many charities to give to, my favorites are Toys for Tots, my community coat drive and local shelters where household food, toiletries and clothes can be dropped off.  Go through your closets and pantry, you'll be suprised at how much you've accumulated and you'll soon give the best gift ever.
