    Default Are you ready for Christmas?


    Restaurant.com had a 80 percent off all their certificates on the 8th.
    I bought everyone certificates for restaurants in their area, and will put it in cards.

    My kids? My youngest (17 with high functioning autism) is getting movies and TV show sets from half.com. My oldest is graduating from college around Christmas and I am going to throw him a graduation party (using one of those certificates). I will also take him to the movies on Christmas Day and out to eat.

    I have odds and ends that I have from garage sales, but basically that's it. I'm finished.

    This might not help but you should start watching amazon soon, they end up having some amazing sales for Christmas. Last year I only bought from them, I had to get toys for my 3 daughters and I ended up getting them more then usual and spending less money. They had some of the big items that I normally would have passed up in the stores because of the high prices but I got them for cheap, like the life sized Dora Doll $85 in stores..30 on amazing and the Dora Talking Vanity 70 in stores..24 on Amazon. Im putting money aside now and going to start hitting them up on black friday and hopefully it will work out as well this year as it did last.

    I have not started yet. I actualyl was talkingto my hsuband last night abotu getting a WII for the kids. And that would be pretty much all they get. He agreed which totally surprised me. And then a few little things. SO I guess I will be going to put that on layaway in thenext coupleweeks. and then start picking upthings for everyone else.

    Kmart is all I can think of right now - Wal Mart and Target did away with theirs.

    I have to share a gift I bought my kids several years ago that they used forever. I went to the local hardware store and bought four or five different sized funnels - made out of plastic and fortunately in bright colors. A cheap gift and they used them in the bath tub, sand box, etc.This year I'm going to go to UHaul and get my son a variety of boxes.(the larger one and a roll of packing tape) for fort making etc. He loves boxes and creating. This is a fairly cheap gift compared to other things.

    here i am probly mostly ready for any gift giveing event that shows up.

    someone i know was cleaning out a house to be demolished and they threw

    every thing in the back of a truck, then they let me go though it all

    and i grabbed every thing i could that i thought would be nice to wash

    it all up and give it away to people. and i am going to use lol news

    papper for the wrapping papper. not to sure about the gift tags yet

    though. i am thinking of cutting up some little debbie boxes into that

    samll size and useing that as gift tags. although i love to save my

    money not spend it all, i am generious, and love to share so i keep

    finding ways to do so with out hurting my family budget. and the truck

    of junk lol we were all calling it, turned out o be a blessing.

    Walmarts?
