Starting Gift Buying Ahead of Time for the Kids - Educational Toys

Some of the best shoppers are also the best planners especially when it comes to major purchases.  They plan their shopping at the right time just before a change of season, watch for deals, and get up early or stay up late to catch a closing auction or doorbusters.

When you have a large family, you look for feasible ways to get everyone's needs met.  On most retail sites there are clearance sections, close-outs, and daily deals, if you can take advantage early on, before a holiday season, chances are you will score big. 

Here is one popular site we are all familiar with that offers "Daily Deals" on educational toys, eBay.  I have purchased beneficial toys for the children for years and they have learned much from them.  The key is to set aside the time for them to play only with those items and before you know it, they are learning rapidly from them.

Caution - Keep Away from Toxic Influences

Whether you are a new mother or a veteran mother, there are those moms in this world that are unfortunately competitive, vulgar, prideful, and miserable.  Negative moms with little positive to say.  If you want to stay above water and be a beacon of light for your spouse and children, you will distance yourself away from them.  Busybodies have wrecked havoc on families.  Temperamental people keep atmospheres tense.  Liars can't be trusted.  You know these people and whether covertly or overtly they are systematically influencing you.

I thought of a toxic relative who had a terrible relationship with her daughter.  This woman was close to another relative and spent much time talking with her about her woes.  In time, I watched how the negative woman's influence changed the loved one.  She too was starting to complain about her daughters.  She too was saying mean and hurtful things during conversations with her kin.  Sometimes we underestimate the power of negative people and conversations and before long our family and friends take notice.  The husband complained of his wife's cursing after she would talk to the relative.  Her adult children recognized that hours on the phone with her gossiping relative was making her difficult to listen to.  Relationships were changing and the mother was too involved with outside influences to recognize the difference.

So as much as you are tempted to reconnect or maintain a toxic tie to someone negative just because that one holds a title like "best friend," especially with this upcoming school year ahead, think twice--people like this are trouble!  The school year is already long enough and when pessimistic people are attached to you, it only becomes longer!
