The Gift of Membership: The Gift That Keeps Giving


Each year during our Christmas festivities I sit there and watch my kids open toy after toy.  All the while I’m thinking to myself “Doesn’t my daughter already have 20 Barbie dolls?”  Or “Where are we going to put that giant toy my son just got?”  Wouldn’t it be nice if someone just got my kids a gift that would benefit them all year long and save me some money in the upcoming year as well?  What is this great gift that I speak of?  The gift of membership!
