If it wasn't for the Last Minute, I'd never get anything done.

Thanks to Walgreens for underwriting this post. I was paid as a member of the Clever Girls Collective, but the content is all mine. Visit

'Tis the week to freak out about all of those people that are on your list that you forgot to get something for.

That's only me? *ahem*

You can do it all in one place. No lie. At Walgreens.

A swing through my local Walgreens yesterday had me brimming with ideas. Check this out:

  • For the college student/young adult with a small apartment: small appliances by Sylvania $14.99-26.99, all with a $5 rebate. I'd go with the rice cooker for $10.99 (after rebate.)
  • For the tween girl: feather hair extensions, 2/$10.
  • Various girls/women on your list: super soft fuzzy socks. For girls, with Dora the Explorer on them, ($3.99 each or 3/$10) So cute! Or for teens/women, 3 pack, 2/$12. That's 6 pairs, y'all!
  • For the tween boy: AXE body wash, $6.49.
  • For the 'local' enthusiast: sweatshirts with your city name, $19.99.
This year I've been shopping for myself a little. (I'm the only shopper in my house, so if I don't do it, no one will!) So if you happen to be an adult, male member of my family, here's what you can get for me, or the sister-in-law that you don't have no idea what she wants:
  • Waterproof tote, in Burberry plaid print, $5.99.
Fashion Tote, Assorted Designs(Not the plaid, but the same tote.)
  • Fill it with: the above fuzzy socks, 
  • Wine! (Walgreens sells wine here in California. Score!)
  • Anything (or everything?) from the Yes to Carrots line ($2.99-$20.49 regular price, on sale this week buy one, get one 50% off!) See also: Yes to Blueberries, Yes to Cucumbers.
  • Any thick body moisturizer, like those by Eucerin, Udderly Smooth, Cetaphil, or Palmer's Cocoa Butter.
Body & Udder Cream

Wanna fill some stockings? In addition to your Great Aunt Matilda's favorite Chocolate Covered Cherries, get some of these:
  • Chapstick or Carmex
  • nail clippers
  • fingernail decals
  • toothbrushes/toothpaste
  • perfume/cologne
  • eye shadow/mascara
  • makeup remover wipes
  • multi-vitamins
  • fleece baby blankets (only $1!)
Want more savings? There's some great Walgreens coupons in this flyer/shopping guide.

So? What will you buy at Walgreens this year? You can tell me. I can keep a secret.

Amber has always loved the Yes To Tomatoe shampoo and then she couldn't find it. Good to know that Walgreen's carries Yet To items!
