Frugal Friday - Gifts

This is my first post -- although I have been reading the tips around the blog hemisphere for a few weeks. Mine may be old news, but its something I always try to do.

Around this time of year and then in the early fall -- there are many, many items of clothing on clearance. My children are all wearing adult size clothes and sometimes its hard to find for them. But I do have little people to buy gifts for and if I plan ahead, I have gifts for later in the year when their birthdays roll around and/or Christmas.
One item of clothing I always am in need of, are long sleeved knit tops. I wear them year round and have picked up quite a few of these in the last 2 months for about $2.00 each average.

Yesterday, all the kids clothes on clearance at Kmart were an additional 50% off the lowest prices. Check your local Kmart.

I picked up quite a few things. Quite a bit of it was licensed character wear. Cute, cute stuff. A sister in our church is expecting with a due date in June. Gift is covered now. 2 birthdays -- one in May and one in July -- done. =)

So, have a gift list handy, with sizes/age and shop when things are at rock bottom prices.

Our Kmart had quite a bit of kids clothes, and they had ladies flannel pajamas for $1.00. How about that for a Christmas gift??? Now is a great time to buy gloves, scarves, boots and pajamas.

Such a very smart idea. Nothing at all wrong with being frugal!
