Luckily, the bargain hunter in me found coupon code CELEBRATE50, which takes half off everything in the photo section at Walgreens. My favorite new gift idea? This Deluxe Beach Tote, perfect for spring break. Deal ends 2/22.

It’s also made of salvaged lumber, which I think is ultra cool. Did I mention it’s also 30% off at Pottery Barn? What’s not to love?
