I've posted this one before, but I'm bringing it back for Jessica who requested gift ideas on our Facebook page. Here's my favorite gift:

If you're sending a student off to college soon, what better gift than a basket full of essentials? How about a new mom or even a newly married couple? When one of my cousins got married, I filled a laundry basket full of essentials just like this and they loved it!

This basket of 40  items would have cost $115.10 , but after sales and coupons it cost $4.80. How? Obviously, preparation is key. You have to know the event is coming and start watching those sales. Stocking up extra on essentials perfect for the person you're shopping for. Actually, many of the items above are in my stockpile on a regular basis so if you have a good stockpile and are in a pinch, grab these items and pick up a laundry basket and you're done!

I love the laundry basket, it's perfect for all occasions and useful. I'm a big fan of putting gifts in useful containers like kids toys in a sand pail and things like that. You can't beat essentials, I'm not a new mom or a college student but even I would love getting that basket above!

Not sure where to start? Check out our Matchups page where we post this week's deals and the coupons to go with them!
