Now that my kids are entering elementary school, they are invited to A LOT and I mean A LOT of birthday parties.
Recently, a friend left a comment on my post regarding how attending birthday party's often requires a big hit to the wallet. I agree. After Christmas, Target had a huge sale on toys, so I decided to stock up. My new rule is that I won't spend more than $10 on a birthday gift. Or I should say, I can't spend more than that because I just don't have the budget for it. I bought lego sets, mp3 players, Star Wars puzzles (Almost all boy stuff. I try to make the girl gifts!)... I put them on a shelf in the laundry room and my kids get to "shop" there and pick a present for their friend.
Onto the fab find...
In last Sunday's paper, there was an insert of coupons for Hasbro games and toys. I took the coupons to Target, but even with the coupons, the toys were too expensive.
On Tuesday or Wednesday, I noticed on Money Saving Mom that Toy Story 3 Operation was TWO dollars at WalMart with a coupon.
Don't get the Sunday paper? Never fear! Click here for the Hasbro printable coupons!
