Now that my children are grown I still buy them things they need but now they appreciate it and what they need cost twice as much. Picking up what I can allows them to be able to make their money stretch further getting everything else they may need. In this economy there are millions more just like my kids who could benefit from the sale items that could be as simple as jumbo toilet paper and such household items that they wouldn't run out of to help them out each pay day for a month or so. Try using coupons to get items for free and surprise someone with the items. They will appreciate it.
