Seeing as my parent's birthdays just happened, I need to refill my gift hoard. What's a gift hoard you ask? I buy things that I think people would like around the year - as I see them, then I save them up, ready for gift giving opportunities - like birthdays and Christmas. This serves several purposes for me. It saves me from trying to look for items people would like last minute, and it saves me from being broke those months when gift opportunities roll around. Do you do this, too? Photo: Mine

I used to be better about that . . . I used to buy stuff up all year 'round - but in the past maybe couple years I haven't. I've gotten more selfish and started buying things for ME . But you do have me thinking that I should start the holiday shopping now!

I know a lot of people who do this. Here on the islands we don't give out gifts so much. Basically we have get together and everyone brings food. Basically the only time to exchange or give a gift is for the small children at Christmas. I think it is a good idea to do this. Then when you need a gift you have something to give.
