Impress Your Dad With A Father's Day Gift Basket

 Gifts for Dad on Father's Day

Picking out just the right Father's Day gift for your Dad isn’t always an easy task. 


Maybe your dad is the strong silent type who doesn’t ever give any clues about what he wants for Father’s Day, or maybe he just insists that you don’t need to get him anything at all.

When you’re not sure what to buy, a gift basket for Father's Day can be an excellent option. 

Father's Day gift baskets allow you to present your dad with something that is both creatively arranged and filled with things that he loves. There are many benefits of sending a gift basket for dad through the mail versus giving a traditional gift, and here are just a few.

Personalization of Father's Day Gift Baskets


Father’s Day sport themed gift baskets come in a wide variety of themes, from fishing and hunting to horses. Rather than choosing a gift basket based on the design theme, you can also send dad a gourmet food basket based on the foods that he loves. Anything from coffee and wine to chocolates and drink mixes can be included in your Father’s Day gift delivery. This will make your dad feel special because it will be clear that you put thought and care into the gift you selected.

Convenience Gift Baskets


Spending hours searching the mall for the right gift takes time and energy, and may not even yield the ideal Father’s Day gift. When you send a Father’s Day gift basket, you can order online and choose the best delivery date in much less time than it would take to give a traditional gift. When life gets busy and you don’t know how you’ll fit in a trip to the store, gift baskets make it possible to provide a meaningful gift that doesn’t take a lot of time to choose.

Unique Gift Basket Presentation


Sending your dad a gift basket for Father’s Day will make your gift stand apart from the typical gift of a new tie or baseball cap. While he might appreciate these additions to his wardrobe, a special gift basket will be far more memorable. The gift is also something he can enjoy for at least several days, or maybe longer. When the gift basket is filled with his favorite foods and guy toys, he can go back to it each time he wants a snack or a drink, and he’ll think of you and your thoughtful gesture.

Father’s Day gifts are a great way to show your dad that you appreciate everything he means to your life. This year, instead of giving him a traditional gift, surprise him with a gift basket delivery.

Make it Personal: Why Your Mom Will Love a Mother's Day Gift Basket



What do you usually give your Mom on Mother's Day?


Flowers or candies might seem the obvious choice, but could you think of something more memorable to show the special lady in your life that you care? Even for the Mom who's 'got it all,' a Mother's Day gift basket is the perfect gift for Mother's Day.

Why Choose a Mother's Day Gift Basket?

With the broad range of Mother's Day gift baskets available, you can give a gift that's totally personal to her. Choosing a gift basket that matches her interests is not only a lovely gift basket, it also lets her know that you really know her as a person; not just someone who darns socks looks after the Grandkids or is there on the other end of the phone when things go wrong. If your Mom is a foodie, then choose a gourmet Mother's Day gift basket, or if she's a keen gardener, then a gardening themed gift basket will be a perfect choice. You can also find pampering gift baskets, gardening gift baskets, and much more, just decide what your Mom would appreciate the most and then you're good to go!

Let's face it, we all get excited at the prospect of opening a gift basket and discovering what amazing goodies are inside, and your Mom is no different! It's something different to the usual Mother's Day gift ideas, and she'll love the thought that's gone into finding the ideal gift basket for her. As an added bonus, if you choose a Mother's Day gift basket that comes in a wicker hamper, she'll be able to use it afterward as a picnic basket or storage box, making it a practical present as well.

If you're still not sure about Mother's Day gift baskets, why not try it this year. If you're there when she opens it, you'll see for yourself just how much she appreciates it, and you'll have the perfect gift idea for every year!

Best Ways to Comfort Grieving Friends and Family Members



 Good things to say and do to comfort grieving friends and family members.


Sympathy Gift Baskets and Gifts
I love you.
Short, simple, profound. We can never say — or hear — it often enough.

I'm so sorry for your loss.
This is the heartbeat of sympathy: shared sorrow.

I'll be praying for you.

Here's something I really appreciated about your loved one.
If you have a brief story or memory to add to their collection, they'll be grateful to hear your words and will cherish them for years to come.

Show up. Be there. Visit.
At the viewing. At the funeral. At their door, if and when it's appropriate. Flowers are nice, but hugs are better.

Weep with those who weep {Romans 12:15}.
Not everyone has a ministry of tears, but if you do, bring tissues.

Listen.
Save your questions and suggestions for another time. Concentrate on making eye contact and nodding.

Provide food.
Bring a meal. Do their grocery shopping. When they're ready, take them to a restaurant. People in mourning may forget to eat. Help them remember.

Keep in touch.
Send a sympathy card or note a month later, when their mailbox is empty.

Condolence Gift Baskets

Include them in your life.
Invite them over to watch a movie or play board games or bake cookies at your house. The less fuss, the better. Think family, not company.

The day will come when your friends will be ready to put aside their heartache and rejoin the land of the living. If you've walked that hard road with them, then you've lived out His truth: A friend loves at all times {Proverbs 17:17}.


Things not to say the next time you attend a funeral or send a sympathy card.


I know how you feel.
We have no idea how other people feel, especially when they're grieving. Even if you, too, have lost a loved one, resist the urge to mention it. Focus on their loss, not yours.

Everything happens for a reason.
This is absolutely true, but it's a reason the Lord alone knows. Don't go there. When the survivors are ready to see a bigger picture, He will show them.

It was his/her time.
Clearly so. No need to point it out.

At least you had ___ good years together.
A reminder of what they've lost does nothing to ease their pain.

You must be glad his/her suffering is over.
Maybe, but if they were praying for healing or recovery, this is not the outcome they were hoping for, and glad is the last thing they're feeling.

You're still young. You can remarry/have another child.
Most of us have never said this. But we might have thought it, and that's bad enough.

It's for the best.
For the deceased, maybe. But not for the people we're trying to comfort.

He/she is in a better place.
If the loved one was a child of God who stepped into the next world when he or she left this one, they assuredly are in a better place. But when we miss someone we love, we want them right here with us.

He/she looks so natural.
Compared to . . . ?

If there's anything I can do, just call.
This sounds caring and sincere, and no doubt is. But a grieving person often doesn't want to burden friends or ask for help. So, we need to call them, figure out what's needed, and make it happen.

The Selfish Act Of Giving, by Laura Tucker


Traditional knowledge tells us the business of gift giving and receiving is built around the old adage,
"It's better to give than to receive." As a society of giving people we want to make an acknowledgment to the people in our life of what the relationship means to us, but the act isn't nearly as selfless as it seems. 

At first, thought giving a gift seems like a selfless act, but once you follow all the thoughts involved, it isn't really selfless after all. There is something you are hoping to gain from it, so it can't be completely selfless. You're doing it so that you will feel good about yourself. Seeing that look on the recipient's face, the immediate knowledge that they've been waiting for this gift or are genuinely surprised by it is what we're waiting for. This becomes a gift to ourselves. 

When I shop for a gift for someone, I try to find something that lets them know how I connect to them, a symbol of our relationship. This is something they can look back on and say, "Laura really knows me and appreciates the fact that we have this in common." Conversely, it's great to be on the other end and realize your friend or family member cares about you so much that they took the time to find this unique item that you both enjoy. It's a personalized gift that you know was bought just for you. 

Often it doesn't even have to be a material gift; an act can mean all the same things. A friend recently had told me no one understood what she wanted on her birthday. She was always cooking dinner for everyone else on their birthday and was hoping someone would finally do it for her. She told her family that's what she wanted most. Yet everyone totally misread what she was looking for and took her out to dinner. While she had a nice dinner and enjoyed their company, it wasn't what she was looking for. 

My friend was looking for someone to say I'm listening to what you want. She was looking for someone to put as much into a gift for her as she does for them. I wanted her to know that I was listening and that there was someone out there that truly understood her. I showed up on her doorstep the day of her birthday with a pan of mostaccioli, garlic bread, salad, salad dressing and a bottle of wine. She had told me eating my mostaccioli one time earlier that I could make it for her anytime. 

The joy on my friend's face was what I was looking and hoping for. She was excited, not that she didn't have to cook dinner for herself, but that someone was willing to make that effort for her. She was also now secure with the knowledge that there was someone out there that understood what she wanted and that truly listened. She told me later that she had told everyone she knew that I had done that for her. She wanted others to know that we were able to connect in that way. 

I try to do this for all the gifts I give on Christmas, but the process can sometimes be daunting. We get so busy at that time of the year and depending on how many people are on a gift list, finding a personalized gift for each person can be time-consuming. Usually some end up being very personalized, some just something I hope the person will enjoy. 

But there's always that one gift. There's always that one gift every year I just can't wait until it is opened. This is the one gift I have found that I know will show that I understand and listen. Seeing the look from the recipient of acknowledgment of our relationship and of what I put into finding that particular item is all I need to make the gift worth every penny and every moment that was put into it. 

Sure, I enjoy when the same is done for me. I enjoy knowing that someone understands and listens to me as well, but I don't get the same sense of accomplishment when the situation is in reverse. I don't get to pat myself on the back for a job well done. I don't get the validation. 

What it comes down to is I'm looking to please myself when I give a great gift. I'm looking to say I set out to do this and accomplished it. I set out to find the perfect gift to show someone I understand and care. It is not at all selfless. I did it for myself in the end run. It is better to give than to receive, and that is because when giving, we're still receiving.

Ways to De-Stress From Emotional Trauma, Instability and Depression

Constant Stress Can Wreak Havoc On Our Bodies, Our Minds, And Our Souls 

Some medical problems are triggered by continual stress, and emotional trauma, instability and mild forms of depression are also likely to result.

By taking a few moments to de-stress when you feel the levels and intensity rising, you can save yourself from undue anxiety and potential health problems.

Below are several stress-reducing options to help you eliminate the physical and mental feelings caused by stress.

Take a Hot Bubble Bath-The soothing suds and warm water can wash your cares away while relaxing your tired, aching muscles. If you want to enhance the healing effects, turn on some soft music, dive into a good book, or just daydream the night away.

Throw on your Comfiest Pajamas and Grab a Good Book! Snuggling up under the covers in your cozy bed with soft, comfortable clothing can be enough to relax you almost immediately. Find your favorite magazine, pull out a book you have meant to read or just put on one of those cooling eye masks to alleviate them from the cares of the day.

Pamper yourself with a Pedicure and a Facial-The softness and smoothness returned to your weary feet may be enough to relax you and help you reduce your stress level, but don't stop there! Use a gentle cleanser and apply a mud mask and sit back for 10-15 minutes while it works its wonders. If you're feeling especially energetic, cut two cucumber slices to place over your eyes. Think happy thoughts and drift away from the things that trouble you.

Take a 20-minute "Power-Nap." If you've got more things on your To-Do List-Right when you get home from work, shed your business attire and hop into your bed-set your alarm for 20 minutes. If you have other things on the evening's agenda or allow yourself to be awake naturally if you have a free schedule. Your energy should return to you in no time!

Make sure you have some Delectable Desserts in the house and Indulge! Cakes, cookies, pastries, brownies... they are all comfort foods to me. Treat yourself to something extravagant and delicious.


Light a Aromatherapy Candle and Play some Soft Music-Close your eyes and imagine whatever peaceful moments come to mind. Relax and think about your hopes and dreams for the not-so-distant future. (Be careful not to leave candles burning unattended).

Convince your Sweetheart to give you a Massage! A simple back massage or foot massage has been known to greatly reduce stress and send the recipient into a super-relaxed state. Just don't forget to return the favor when your sweetie is having a bad day!

Kick Back in Comfortable Clothes and Look through your Photo Albums-Memories of happy times can easily bring a smile to your face and take you back to days when the tides weren't so turbulent... Plan a vacation or a get-together with friends for another photo-taking opportunity to add to your scrapbooks, and the simple act of having something to look forward to should significantly help you cope with your stress.

Start Keeping a Diary or a Journal, just for yourself! Record your innermost thoughts and feelings, and vent out your angst of the day. It can be very effective to get your troubles off your chest and onto a sheet of paper, where they'll stay for the rest of the night.

Immediate Results for Urgent Needs: Deep Breathing-Take deep breaths when you feel your stress levels begin to escalate. Start by counting to three inhaling and then to three while exhaling. Gradually increase it to five, six or seven as you try to calm yourself from the aggravating element.

Stretching-Especially if you find yourself irritated at work, raise your arms above your head, arch your back and give it a good stretch. Get up from your desk and walk around five-minute breaks are definitely allowed when your sanity is at stake!

Go Somewhere to Be Alone and Have a Good Cry or Confront the Source-I have been on the brink of tears while on the job, and sometimes the best solution to an overly stressful day is to lock yourself in a room (failing that, your car) and let loose. The relief and renewal experienced by letting out a couple of tears rejuvenate the body and the mind. Get mad, get upset, but get over it...cry in privacy or express yourself to the afflicting individual. Chances are you will feel much better once you confront the agitating factor.

Do Something for YOU - Play an instrument, knit or crochet, work on a scrapbook or partake in another of your hobbies. Lose yourself in the moment and do not think about your stress until you must. Go to bed early with a light heart and dream of happy and carefree moments ahead.

Exercise-Go for a Jog, do some abdominal workouts, aerobics or lift some weights. Exercising renews the body and gives the mind an easy escape from daily troubles.

Enjoy a Cup of Herbal Tea or Gourmet Coffee and a few Cookies or a Good Book-Soothe yourself with a warm beverage and some sweets or get lost in some good reads. Reading can be a great escape from stress because it requires your mind to focus on something other than your own problems.

Order-Out! Indulge in some Comfort Foods or a cup of Hot Cocoa-Avoid making dinner or dessert for the night and call for a pizza, pick up some Chinese food or find a place that makes great seafood to go. Whatever your palate desires, treat yourself (and your family) to a night of take-out.

Try something like Yoga or Meditation to Relieve the Day's Stressors-Beneficial results occur by relaxing the body through yoga exercises. Mental, physical and spiritual responses to yoga and meditations can very powerfully reduce stress's effects on your mood and your body in general.

Break out of the Routine! Do something unusual and avoid the stressors. Your laundry can wait another day or two, run the dishwasher tomorrow and just relax! Get together with a few friends and go on an adventure-leave the town you know and the buildings you inhabit day after day and take a hike, hit up the beach or go sailing on a beautiful body of water.

Spend Time with Loved Ones and Pets! If they are the ones making you stressed out, you may think about some alone-time, but more times than not, there's nothing quite like that unconditional love freely given by our furry friends who look to us for the same affection.

No Matter What Stressors Affect You from day to day, it is important to try to combat them before they get out of hand. Job-related stress could follow you home and may then have an effect not only on you and your body but on your family, too.

5 O’Clock Somewhere Gift Basket

Do what you can to reduce stress and ask those who are close to you for advice if you can't find a reasonable alternative to the taxing feelings forced upon you by stress. Remember: worrying does not get you anywhere-all it does is take up time.

Get out there and do something about it!

Health Benefits of Coffee Consumption


Coffee lovers will tell you already that there are numerous benefits to practically inhaling the drink each morning.


Some people even go so far as to consume the beverage all day long in some form or another. Some like it hot, some like it cold, and some like it in or with desserts such as ice cream.

To these people, it may not be surprising to find out that coffee might actually have some health benefits, despite the negative reputation it has for the unhealthy side effects of caffeine consumption.

However, there may very well indeed be some real benefits to coffee consumption. These are three purported benefits of coffee consumption. 


Coffee As An Anti-Depressant:



Folgers does claim that the best part of waking up is, well, their coffee in your cup. But, some research suggests that any coffee in your cup may be a key to fighting depression. According to Prevention magazine, those that drink four or more cups of coffee a day are less likely to display symptoms of depression. And, since the same benefit does not extend to other caffeinated beverages, researchers suggest it is due to the antioxidants found in the drink, not the caffeine. Perhaps Joe should be considered a valued friend after all.


Coffee for Weight Loss:



It may seem counterintuitive to drink a caffeinated beverage and expect weight loss, but minus all the extra creams and sugars, coffee can actually be good for weight loss efforts. At least, that is what Dr. Oz has claimed on one of his shows. A few other researchers make this claim as well, but still, others caution that there is no definitive evidence to fully back up the claim. Rather, it is green coffee beans that are thought to assist with weight loss. They supposedly do so because they are unroasted beans, which still contain a chemical compound called chlorogenic acid. This compound is lost when the beans are heated and roasted, and it is this chemical that is said to aid with weight loss.


Coffee to Avoid Liver Failure:



As unlikely as it may seem, some studies suggest that coffee may reduce the risk of certain liver problems. The Mayo Clinic offered study results claiming that those that consume coffee on a regular basis, a cup a day or more, may have a lower risk of developing primary sclerosing cholangitis, or PSC, which is an autoimmune disease that causes liver damage. And alcohol consumers might also like to know that it is believed that those who consume coffee on a daily basis might be less at risk for alcoholic cirrhosis of the liver.

Fun Facts About Easter

While the pageantry and presents of the Christmas season overshadow it, Easter is the holiest day for Christians. It is on this particular day that Christians from every corner of the globe and from every denomination celebrate the resurrection of their savior Jesus Christ.

Easter holds a special meaning for people from all walks of life, rich and poor, young and old, male and female. For many people, Easter means fond memories of waking up to an overflowing Easter basket. To others, it means special times with family and friends, and to others, Easter means building on past family traditions to create a special celebration for your own family.

There are some great and exciting facts about the Easter holiday, and it is great fun to delve into the history, facts, and trivia of this particular holiday. Some of the things you may not have known about Easter include:

The Easter egg roll on the White House lawn has been a tradition ever since 1878, and it remains one of the most popular events in Washington, D.C.

The people of the Ukraine are thought to be the original egg decorators, and the process of creating those intricately decorated eggs is known as ìPysankyî. The Ukrainians and others have been creating these intricately decorated eggs for over six thousand years, and some of their creations are worth a fortune.

We owe the ever famous chocolate bunny to the people of Germany. It was the Germans who first created edible Easter bunnies out of a combination of pastry and sugar. These special Easter treats were first baked in the early 1800s, and as Germans emigrated to the United States, they brought their chocolate rabbits with them.

In Europe, it was common practice to hang decorated Easter eggs from tree branches, and this practice of creating Easter trees is becoming popular in the United States as well.

The egg as a symbol of fertility and new birth predates the Christian celebration of Easter. The egg has long been held to be a symbol of rejuvenation and rebirth. Decorated eggs have been found in Egyptian tombs, and the Greeks used to place eggs on the graves of departed loved ones.

The beauty of Easter lies in its versatility. Easter can be either a somber religious celebration, a great chance to eat delicious candy and open presents, or a combination of both. No matter what your Easter celebration may hold, we hope you enjoyed these fun facts about this very special day.

How to Throw a Hoppin' Fun Easter Bash for Your Kids

Kids Easter Party Ideas Bring some fun into your Easter this year by throwing an Easter party for your kids and their friends. 

Below are some egg-cellent ideas for your Easter bash.

Invitations

Make some extra cute invitations by gluing construction paper rabbit ears to the back of a folded notecard that gives the details for the party.
If you are delivering your invitations in person, print the party information on pastel paper. Roll up the paper and place it inside a plastic Easter egg to give to guests.



Décor
Easter eggs and bunny rabbits are central to an Easter party theme. Have you kids help you cut ovals out of construction paper and poster board. Decorate with markers, stickers, and glitter. Hang one large paper egg on the front door to welcome the guests.
Use pastel colors like pink, baby blue, soft green and lilac for streamers, balloons and table covers.
Food
Satisfy kids' appetites with these Easter treats.
Rabbit Snacks
Everyone knows that rabbits love their veggies. Fill plastic cups with carrots and celery, and give kids ranch dressing for dipping.
Peeps Fruit Kabob
Cut up small pieces of fruit and put them on skewers with a Peep in the center of each. Use cubes of pineapple and melon, strawberries, grapes and orange slices.
Rice Cereal Eggs
Melt two tablespoons of butter with 4 cups of marshmallows. Mix in 6 cups of rice cereal.
Clean 12 plastic eggs and coat the inside of the eggs with cooking spray.
Press the cereal mixture inside. Kids will open the eggs to find a marshmallow treat.
Easter Cake
Prepare a regular round cake, and ice it with white frosting. Pour pastel colored candies on the top of the cake, and line the edge of the cake with bunny Peeps standing side by side.

Activities
Make your party memorable with awesome activities that kids will enjoy.
Egg Coloring
Any Easter bash should have a time to color eggs. Before the party, boil at least one egg for each guest. Set out cups with a half cup of water, a tablespoon of vinegar and enough food coloring to produce the shade you want. Provide spoons so kids can get the eggs in and out of the water.
Take your egg decorating to another level by providing some extra supplies. Kids can draw on their colored eggs with permanent markers or paints. Spread glue on the eggs in any pattern you like and then roll them in glitter.
Egg Hunt
This is another must-do activity for your Easter celebration.
Buy plastic eggs, and fill them with candy or coins. Hide them in your yard or around the house. Give each guest a basket, and let them go crazy.
If your guests are of several different age groups, consider hiding eggs in a particular color for each group. That way you can make the big kids work harder for their eggs and be sure that little ones will get to find some, too.
Designate one or more eggs as special, and hide something like $1 or four leaf clover charm inside. The finders of these eggs will win a special prize.
Egg Toss
Divide the guests into pairs, and give each team an egg. Start with partners standing facing each other about a foot apart. One partner tosses the egg to the other partner. If the egg is successfully caught, each person takes a step back. If the team misses the catch, they are out. The last team standing is the winner.


Bunny Hop Race
Divide guests into two teams, and ask them to stand in a line. Give the first person on each team a balloon. They must place the balloon between their thighs and hop to a designated spot on the other side of the yard or room without dropping the balloon or touching it. If they drop the balloon, they must put it back between their legs and continue hopping where they stopped.
When one player successfully hops across the room and back, the next player in line gets the balloon and takes a turn. The winning team is the first to have all players successfully complete the hopping.
Egg Roll Race
Mark off a starting line and finish line on opposite sides of a yard or room. Line the guests up along the starting line, and give each guest a hard-boiled egg. Ask the kids to get down on their hands and knees. When the whistle blows, the children must roll their eggs with their noses to the finish line. The first person there is the winner.
Bunny Sack Race
Give each child a potato sack or pillow case and let them hop across the yard to the finish line. Don't forget to give them some bunny ears to wear while they are racing.
This race can also be done relay style if you have a lot of guests and not very many potato sacks.
Peep Stuff
Seat guests in a circle, and pass around a bowl of Peeps. See how many Peeps the kids can stuff into their mouths while still being able to say "Happy Easter" out loud.
Basket Game
Divide kids into three or four teams, and assign each team a color and a basket. Dump a large container of plastic eggs onto the floor, and have the kids pick up eggs of their color to drop into their basket. The first team with all the eggs in a basket is the winner.
Potted Flowers
Give each child a small clay planter, some potting soil and a small flower like a marigold or pansy. Let kids plant their creations to take as an Easter gift for someone at home.
Easter is a perfect time for a celebration. Use these suggestions to help you throw an Easter party that will have your kids hopping with joy.

Finding Time to Pamper Yourself

Spa gift baskets for womenAs women, we are always putting ourselves last. We cater to the needs of our ailing parents, our significant others, and our kids; but by the time we get around to ourselves it is either too late in the day, or we are just too exhausted.

We can find time for ourselves by including ourselves in our daily schedules. In doing so, we will begin to relieve the stress associated with the hustle and bustle of everyday life.

Below are just a few suggestions for Finding Time to Pamper Yourself:

1 - Create a spot in your house where you can have "ME" time. Once you have created you "ME" time place. Set aside daily time to meditate, read a good book, watch your favorite show, or just have some quiet time, if even for a few precious minutes a day.

2 - Create a spa experience in your bath tub. Use your favorite bath tea or bath salt in your bath water, light some candles and listen to some soft, soothing music such as Jazz.

3 - Treat yourself to a weekly spa treatment. Many of these you can do at home yourself such as facials, body polishes, manicures, and/or pedicures.

4 - Invite your girlfriends over for a spa party.  Many companies are now bringing the spa experience into customer's homes and offices. Do an internet search on spa parties and contact the ones that interest you.

5 - Light a lavender candle or spray a lavender scented mist in your "ME" area during your scheduled "ME" time. Lavender helps to create a calming and uplifting effect.

By following the above-listed suggestions, you will in no time begin to feel de-stressed and re-energized.

How To Slash Your Grocery Bills With Extreme Couponing

Food can eat up almost any budget if you're not careful about saving on groceries. Here are five easy tips to help you save while shopping or eating out.

Check Weekly Store Ads
Scour the weekly store ads for the best grocery deals. Then find blogs and other Web sites that have already done the hard work of matching the sales up with recent coupons to boost your savings even higher. If you don't have much time to clip coupons, use printable coupons or eCoupons.


Stockpile
Buy before you need it. By stockpiling items you need at the lowest price, you can just shop from your pantry. By combining a store sale with coupons, you can maximize your savings. Once you have a nice stockpile built, you will make fewer trips to the store, which will reduce your impulse purchases and help you save on gasoline. Another advantage of stockpiling is that you'll already have a stocked pantry, which gives you one less excuse not to cook at home.


Create a list of 50 or so of your most-used products, items you can have on hand to whip together a meal anytime. This will be different for every family. To get the best deals, you have to put aside brand preferences unless you are willing to wait longer for your preferred brands to go on sale. Basics to stockpile include: canned soups, canned/frozen vegetables, canned fruits, cereal, sugar, bread, pasta and pasta sauce. Outside of food, you should also stockpile cleaning supplies, laundry detergent and personal care products.


Plan Your Meals
Make your weekly meal plans based around what you already have in your pantry or on the weekly grocery sales. Browse free sites like $5 Dinners, Simply Recipes, and Carrie's Cooking for fun new recipe ideas.

Still stumped for meal ideas? Many manufacturers have recipe sites. For example, if you have a can of beef gravy or cream of mushroom soup, you can visit the company's Web site, search by item and usually find recipes to use it.

Prepare "Freezer Meals"
For those nights when you don't feel like cooking, having several meals ready to go in the freezer will stop you from ordering out. Whenever you cook your favorite meal, double the recipe and freeze the other half for a later date. For inspiration, check out the free site Once a Month Mom, which helps you cook a month's worth of meals in one day.


Look for Free Promotions When Eating Out
You don't have to eat at home every night to stay within your food budget. Many restaurants are offering free promotions to lure you in. Use these coupons and savings by signing up for their e-newsletters or by following Web sites that alert readers to money-saving offers. Just be sure to check the specifics of each deal so that you know when it can - and can't - be used.Click here to buy gift baskets online
