Cheap moving gift???

    from me. I wanted to know if you had any ideas for gifts for someone
    who will be staying at home with 2 twin boys (3 years old) and a 1
    year old daughter.
    Of course I want this to be cheaper items.
    Thanks for you help in advance.

    Hi, When I moved into our house, the best gifts I received were
    casseroles already made and ready to use or freeze for another day.
    It was so nice after a hard day unpacking and arranging, that all I
    had to do was to pop one of these in the oven to have a home cooked
    dinner ready. Carmellyn

    Tara,
    I will often make a gift of bean/split pea soup mix, salad mix, ranch
    dressing, and baked cornbread. There are many soup mix recipes (my
    favorites are holiday bean soup, friendship soup, and patchwork soup).

    Go to GardenRidge or your local dollar store and find a flatish basket
    ($1-2). Make the Soup mix in a quart ziplock and staple the
    directions to the top(above the zip)($1-2). Make an 8" pan of
    cornbread. Put in a 1lb bag of garden salad mix ($1-2) and a small
    bottle of ranch dressing ($1-2). At the most, it will cost about
    $10. Usually more like $6.

    What is nice is that the bean soup can simmer and make the new house
    smell good all day. And the salad mix and cornbread store well in

    the fridge for a few days if they can't make it right away.

    Hugs,
    Hannah
