End of the School Year Classmate Gift Tag – Free Printable

Every school year we leave a little sad that we won’t see some of our friends. Unfortunately with private school none of Miss A’s classmates live in our neighborhood, but whether or not your child’s classmates are far away or closeby this cute End of the School Year Gift Tag is a great way to express what a great year your child had and offer opportunities for play dates in the summer.

In Pre-K I made this Sweet End of School Classmate Gift, and last year for Christmas I made gingerbread play dough with a sweet gingerbread prayer, but will have to post that later this year. This year as we were shopping for cute, little gifts for Miss A’s classmates we found ice cream scented bubbles in adorable ice cream cone shaped containers. I went with the ice cream theme and created this gift tag:

Type A StuffDid I get your attention? If so, then maybe you’re like me, I’ll admit it, I like to get free stuff. (Like all the goodies in the photo to the right from the Type-A Blogger Conference this past year.) I grew up not having a lot, but in some ways I’m glad that we didn’t have lots of money because I gained character from having to work hard for the things I wanted. I think growing up with little money made me appreciate my belongings more, which again brings me to the FREE stuff. It’s always nice to hear those four letters together: F-R-E-E. My mom’s the same way, {come on mom, admit it} and if you’re like us you can’t resist at least finding out the details, I know my head turns when I hear, “Freebie” even if it’s something I don’t want or need, and that’s where the problem lies.

Do you ever have a hard time saying, “no” to handouts or feel bad for turning down a freebie offer? Do you ever say yes just to end up throwing the free away when you get home or piling it up where you keep all of your “junk”? If you answered, “yes” to any of the above here are a few things to keep in mind as you walk past those offers, get those tempting emails, or you…just….can’t….resist….

Tip #1. Ask yourself, “Is this something I will use right away or in the next few months” and if not don’t even bother picking it up.

Tip #2. Think about who will use the freebie, how it will be used, and how much space it would take up in your home if it is not used.

Tip #3. Consider if you have any of the same item already at home, who needs 50 sponges under their kitchen sink??

Tip #4. Leave the best of intentions at just that. If you’re the kind of person who gets free things thinking it’ll be great for Aunt Bertha, just don’t do it, you know you’ll never give it to her and it’ll end up collecting dust.

Tip #5. Remember you were just fine in life without the free item and you’ll still be fine if you don’t get it.

Do you like getting freebies? What’s the “best” freebie you’ve ever gotten? Where do you store your unused freebies??
