This year, it will be different. This year, you will have Junk Drawer Stocking Stuffers.
Here's what to do.
1. Get a shopping bag of moderate size. Really, who cares what size. But use one that can't be otherwise repurposed as gift wrap.
2. Loop the handles over your arm.
3. Walk from room to room, searching through every junk drawer and random collection basket for possible stocking stuffers. You know just the thing - a promotional pen? Check. Golf ball your dog found in the park? Check. Tiny perfume sample bottle? Check. Handiwipes and peppermints that came with your BBQ takeout? Checkity-check-check. If it's too good to throw away and has landed in your junk drawer, it is good enough to stuff in a stocking.
In The Frugal Hostess's anything but humble opinion.
