Magazine Subscriptions as Gifts

They are not always super cheap, but sometimes you can find a great deal on a magazine gift subscription. Often, for $20 or less, you can purchase a gift subscription for someone you love. This might be a great family gift at Christmas time or birthday gift for a child. It is the gift that keeps on giving all year long.

The National Wildlife Federation has some great magazines for kids. Our personal favorite for toddlers is Wild Animal Baby, which comes in a board book-type cover. Highlights also has some great kids magazines available. Amazon is a great place to find out about magazines and sometimes has special deals or offers. Be sure, however, that you follow through on your gift and check with the recipient to make sure they have received their first copy.

Organization Help

I think most stay at home parents have days when the house and all it’s contents seem overwhelming. You want to be organized, but just don’t know where to begin. Here are a few websites that have some good organizing tips. Beware though, it is easy to get caught up in everything that you could be organizing.

Decide what is most important to you and start there. Make a list or make a plan for how the organizing will be done and how it will be kept up. Set aside a period of time each day to work on cleaning out and organizing. Don’t try to do it all in one fell swoop.
