    Inexpensive Ideas

    Advertisements
    So the first two care packages I put together cost about $60 each. Yikes! The things we do for love...

    Anyway, I am a little financially strapped for the next month or so and I was wondering if you ladies had any good "inexpensive" gift ideas??

    You rock!! Thanks for your input and suggestions.

    i only buy stuff thats on sale, buy one - get one, or go to the dollar store. i def don't ever go looking for specific items, i just send randomly what i find for cheap!

    and i make a lot of things that i send. like letters and i burn him CDs of music i already have or digital pictures, instead of printing (he has his laptop, so he can look at pics on that!).

    umm... what else? idk... lemme think and come back!

    OP I know what you're feeling. My db deploys and I go to college a few weeks after. So I have a feeling I'm going to split the food I'm buying for myself in my dorm room with care packages for him. Cause otherwise I will be broke. I love him, but school books and tooth paste is slightly more important than "soft" toilet paper.

    dollar store or stuff that is on sale. target has a dollar section and walmart is slowly tryin to get a dollar section of food not necessarily toy items but i usually only spend 20 dollars. and if he needs something in particular and its not on sale i still get it. and most of the time everything i buy is only $1.

    PS i sent out my last carepack yesterday that means this deployment is soooooo close to being over sorry for threadjacking
