  • Morning Coffee: Putting my gift box to good use

    I’ve previously discussed how keeping a gift box saves me money, but sometimes it comes in handy for situations other than birthday parties and holidays. Today, for instance, I’m going to visit my girlfriend and her son in the hospital – he has an infection that doctors need to observe, so I’m going to take over some books and toys from my gift box, the kinds of things that a child can enjoy while stuck in bed. I’ll also bring some snacks for his mom from my stockpile, along with a free magazine or two (almost all of my subscriptions are free now!).
