BENTONVILLE, GETTING IDEAS ON
DIFFERENT HOLIDAY GIFTS AND WHERE TO START. BUT TONIGHT,
MOTHER OF MA
KIDS IS SHARING HE SECRETS TO
SHOPPING SUCCESS WITHOUT BREAKING THE BANK.  
 
 
 
“I thought anybody that had more
than four kids is
nuts, yeah and I have nine
haha.” YOU HEARD THAT RIGHT – WE ME
MOTHER OF NINE, GENA WESTBROOK,
AS SHE AND HER FAMILY WERE
LEAVING FIRST FRIDAY TOYLAND. HER KIDS RANGE IN AGE FROM 3 TO
19 YEARS OLD, AND SHE SAYS
LEARNING TO SHOP FOR THE
HOLIDAYS
HAS BECOME A YEAR- ROUND EVENT. “It takes a lot of work, a lot
of saving during the year to g
there.” BUTTED “I go to
Cavender’s after season and I
will grab coats, I got
2 jackets for 12 bucks.” BUTTED “You gotta save
every dime, but you get them
some great gifts
WHILE WESTBROOK HUNTS FOR EACH
DEAL, GRANDMOTHER KAREN HUGHES SAYS SOME GIFTS ARE WORTH
RE-GIVING. “Especially with toys there’s
nothing wrong with going to a
resale shop and getting them a
used toy, the child doesn’t
know. Just wrap it and bring it
from Santa, and you know it’ brand new to them. I think the
best thing is don’t over-do it,
don’t get what you can’t afford
because that’s not
going to do anything except
haunt you in January.” THAT’S WHY WESTBROOK
WI
ALSO GIVE THE GIFT OF A FAMILY
EXPERIENCE. HER FAVORITE ? THEIR
TRIP LAST YEAR TO THE CHRISTMAS
TREE FARM IN PEA RIDGE “And that’s why we love
Northwest Arkansas
because they offer so many
things for the
family. The splash pad, the
skating, all that that children can do because with so many
kids, we can
not, we just can’t, go to oh
lets go to the movies
because it’s 10 dollars a
person. SO my, if all of u went wow, that’s just crazy.” ANOTHER GOOD PIECE OF ADVICE
BOTH
WOMEN SHARED WAS PAYING
ATTENTION TO
THE GIFT ITSELF, AND GETTING
SOMETHING THAT CAN BE USED OR ENJOYED MORE
THAN
JUST FOR A FEW DAYS. THEY BOTH
SAID
SOMETHING MEMORABLE IS WORTH A
FEW EXTRA DOLLARS. LIVE IN BENTONVILLE JW 4029 NEWS.
