I have multiple mothers- and grandmothers-in-law. This year, I bought their gifts in bulk.
Awful, aren't I?
I was strolling through Dollar Tree when I saw a clerk unloading a shipment of beautiful hardbacks with sepia covers. One was Mary Higgins Clark's memoir, which details her childhood, early career, and motherhood. Perfect!
I snapped up five copies, a roll of embossed foil paper, and was all done for under $6. The wrapped packages slipped easily into my surplus brown envelopes. I'm printing out the postage as I write.
In the old days, I would have spent a weekend scouring the city for a gift tailored to each woman, exhausting everyone in the process.
Cutting my gas expenses this month has simplified my life in more ways than I anticipated!
