Reader Tip: How I Save on Gifts All Year Long

garage sale finds

Beka emailed in the following tip:

We’re avid garage sale people — we go nearly every Saturday. Some days we find absolutely nothing, while other days we hit the jackpot!

We have 5 children (who are still young enough that gifts don’t have to come in brand new packaging), so by garage-saling, we are able to stock up on Christmas and birthday gifts during peak garage sale months. This has saved our gift budget a LOT of money!

Thankfully, we live in a suburb in Texas and garage sales are happening 9 months out of the year — however, even if you have a shorter garage sale seasons, this is still an excellent way to save on Christmas and birthday gifts! -Beka

Do you love homemade granola? If so, you’ll definitely want to enter this giveaway!

Gathering Grains is a company that offers delicious homemade granola. And I don’t say that lightly!

Gathering Grains giveaway

I’ve tried multiple varieties they offer and they are so delicious! My favorite, of course, is the Chocolate Peanut Butter kind.


Mixed in with some coconut milk, almond milk, yogurt, or milk, it’s the perfect start to your morning!


Gathering Grains Granola is made by Andrea — a mom who was concerned with the chemicals her children were eating for breakfast and went on a mission to do something about it.

Gathering Grains giveaway

Andrea started making things from scratch, reading really old recipes, creating great friendships with an Amish family, and doing some research. Eventually, she started a business fueled by her passion to bring natural food back into her home.

Her motto became: “If my great-grandmother can’t identify it, it’s not coming into our house!”

She says that her granola has been “approved by the neighbor children, encouraged by great friends, and supported by a (very) understanding husband.”


Gathering Grains Granola is handmade, with 100% non-gmo ingredients, including heart healthy coconut oil and non-pasturized Amish raised honey. It is 100% sodium and preservative free.

Special orders are available, including gluten-free and nut-free. Contact Andrea directly to place special orders (gatheringgrains @
