http://www.listia.com/signup/226665 I found this site a few days ago. you can shop for free using points. I have already listed over 30 new items to buy. You could start there or find anything your heart desires by using the search box. if you have something laying arounf you don't want or need list it and get the ball rolling for free points. I can't wait till I start shopping next month.

I know I saw some things going to canada so they ship everywhere. You have to register and do the few things on the right side and you will get points. You use those points to bid. The more stuff you list for sale the more points you will gain. I have 576 so far and I have not sold anything yet. I have tow bids that so far will gain me 200 points. I am so excited about this. let me know what you put up so I can bid on them and get your points up.

I don't know what is available in your area; but, places like Big Lots have CDs, DVDs, and books for $5 or less and they have a big selection. It takes a little time to go through all of them; but, a book by a favorite author, a movie or some anime to watch, or some new tunes to listen to are usually welcome gifts.

I see but my brother and sister are still kids, so as my boyfriend's brothers.. so I was thinking of toys or clothes? I don't know yet. Too bad my boyfriend doesn't read, book would be a good idea. My boyfriend is into extreme sports but these stuffs are really expensive.

There are books for all age children and if they are too young to read you could read to them; there are also puzzles for children and these are also inexpensive. Boyfriend into extreme sports - there are DVDs and books about extreme sports. He might even learn some new moves/stunts and even if he enjoys extreme sports - there are times when he cannot actually be doing them - nighttime, bad weather. Books and DVDs about the extreme sports he enjoys are much less that the actual equipment. You might also consider posters about the sports he enjoys.

My family is on tight budget this year too. My two kids and 5 grand daughters..and the kids all have so much and with divorces..they get gifts from both parents and all so they have plenty of toys. So I was thinking... I think I will get them practical things that they love. My one GD loves Kraft Mac and Cheese (in the blue box) so I was thinking of just getting her a case of that... will last for months and her favorite food and she'll think of me everytime she eats it and it saves money on mommy's food bill. Campbells chicken noodle soup is another fav... each kid has a favorite food so Iwas going to get them each a "case" of it....those huge eyes when they see their "HUGE" present under the tree.. and then open it to their favorite food...knowing they will be able to eat it for days on end etc... I think it will be a great way to conquer the tight budget, christmas gift, make the kids happy and the parents happy gift solution!

But to them it isn't just "food"... it is their favorites that are kind of rationed out over the months! THe smiles are going to be great! I can't wait. I think I'll make "gift boxes" of alot of their faavorites instead of just one or two cases of a thing or two. Fill a large box with their favs from box dry cereal (probably the most expensive food there!) and other non-parishables that they love. My 4 yo GD loves those little mini pickles (she calls them pico-los) from Mt Olive...a single serving container just pull the top off and there are about a dozen tiny little pickles in there - lunchbox perfect. But they are a treat when she comes to my house...now she can take some home! But 6 for $3 is a great price for soemthing I know she will love! I just need to start a list of what they all like and start watching the sales

if you are crafty, you can make stuff for them or what about putting together a photo album that you have scrapped. also you could make food for them like baking cookies etc.

I have thought of giving a cake for my mom's boyfriend. My aunt sells cakes so it would be cheaper if I'll buy from her. Thanks! :)
