How to buy gifts for young kids when they're always with you at the store
Another holiday hack from Kelly:
I just heard about the other day (from a nurse while I had a few day stay in the hospital). The mom told me that she found it hard to buy for her young daughter for Christmas because her daughter was always with her. So if her little girl wanted something at the store, the mom told her that they'd have the salesperson scan the item in so that it would show up on her Christmas list. The mom was actually buying it. When they went home, the mom typed up a Christmas list and showed the girl on the computer that the item had, indeed, shown up on the list!
Creative, and she said it worked!
