    Am I the only one who looks around after the presents are opened and thinks 'I was sure I had bought *****' and then you go hunting through all of your hiding spots and find it still in the bag from the store?

    Todays forgets are 2 pair of jammies for DD, a whole box of presents that my gram sent a month ago and a poster that DS had bought DD.

    UgH!

    When my mil passed away, we found packages of things she had bought and intended to give to people but had forgotten about. Apparently she was notorious for finding things after the fact. [​IMG]

    HAHA!! When I do that I just don't buy birthday presents for the kids that year...lol. I have done it several times, and not even FIND it until te birthday, so there's one solution. Sometimes if it's a small gift I add something with it.

    I got DD a box of new crayons as a stocking stuffer, stuffed them in the back of the closet and couldn't find them last night

    I lived most of my adult life in TX and Mom was here in SC- she always sent fabulous boxes in December- then in July or so, I'd get another box of all the stuff she'd forgotten!
    [​IMG] I LOVED those July boxes, even though the sweaters weren't so useful then.....................[​IMG]

    Yup. Back in the fall I bought my mom some personalized stationary. Totally forgot about it. It wasn't until the nieces were opening their stationary from my mom that I remembered. I finally found where I had stashed it. Thankfully she thought it was really funny. And she like the stationary. [​IMG]
