    I agree watch for specials, sales and only use those coupons for those name brand products you buy. Now for suggestions on what to buy...what do you use the most, what are items you seem to not have enough money for? I guess that is what I would buy, spend half on some canned goods and staple items and the rest on some freezer type items that we will use over time. Sounds like a wonderful present

    I agree with Kim, I would definately stock up on staples and freezer items & watch for sales! What a great gift!
