I saw some great recipes for sugar scrubs I am going to try. They will be great for by best friend, mom and my sister!

I found a few things on clearance that I will use for the kids for example kid K'nex was $30 got it for $5 there was a good sale on books so I got them for the girls as well so my plan is to continue to watch for clearance sales and get a lot of stuff that way

Christmas is going to be real skimpy this year.

I started getting a few things. Finished one nephew and soem of the teachers. A few of the kids gifts and stockin stuffers. Money is tight right now so still fine tuning the budget

Nice find on the K'nex! I should start paying more attention to those clearance toys. I tend to zip right past them (because 3YO DD is usually with me).

Wow! I'm impressed. OK, you've inspired me to get my holiday shopping at least organized!

The Sound of Music sounds like it will be a lot of fun. When is the show?

I have never made sugar scrubs, but I always consider it when I see the recipes. Have you ever made them before?

if the girls are with me I still get the good deals and tell them it is for my prize bin they usually forget about it in a month
I also got a furry frenzy on clearance for $5 for two special edition pets package
I also found a few things at 5 below that will be Christmas gifts
I have to figure out what my family is doing sometimes just the kids or just the adults or both
I figured I will have both my sisters kids since that makes the most sense

I only buy for my kids and grandson. I limit that to 4 gifts plus one each from Santa. With 3 kids at home, that makes 15 gifts, plus 1 for oldest ds, dil and gs (or maybe he'll fit right in with the 4, haven't decided) and I have 1 grandneice that I'll pick up a book or 2 for (I decided that I'll be that crazy grandaunt that buys books for gifts! LOL) Each one get an ornament, and small stocking stuffers, then something for honey (probably scrubs for work, not romantic, but needed). Then I'll be done. I had planned to make a custom stocking for the gs, but it takes months to do, and I just don't have the time to get it done. Next year for sure, I'll have the hours on end to spend on it, but not this year. I wish I was actually further in my shopping, but i have a blanket for ds3 and a book for dd, so 13 gifts to go....
