Shopping: Clothes, books and toys oh my!

I am sorry I have been neglecting my forum!! I hope I have not lost the few readers I have at the moment. Life is just getting in the way! I am almost done with my semester—one research paper, project and a mini (5 to 7 pages) paper left to do. Two weeks left after Thanksgiving and I will be on my break!! Over break I will be hashing out restaurants with DGM to see how many they will be planning on joining us for. So, if you have any input on restaurants you just love or if you go back you can see the ones I am tentatively considering, I would LOVE your input.


Now onto shopping! I have been trying to pick up things here and there to help spread the cost out. First up, I have been ordering a few things from Disney as I get good sales. I believe DGM has picked up quite a few things for her too. I know the Tinkerbell costume and accessories (at least the shoes) are a definite along with a few more clothing pieces. Not a 100% sure what, but we will find out at Christmas.

Here are the items we have picked up:


Some adorable t-shirts

Sleeping Beauty swimsuit—major clearance!! I think I ended up paying $4 for it. The pair of sandals is from online as well—super cheap summer clearance! Lilian loved them when I showed them to her and wanted to wear them right away.





PJs—a pants and tank set and a night gown. She has a few others I picked up on clearance a year ago that still fit as well. I LOVE love: how well Disney clothes hold up despite repeat washings.

Some adorable tank dresses! I love shopping off season (I love taking advantage of it right now when Lilian has no opinion, other than she likes them! )


That is what we have Disney clothing wise. I see what else she ends up with after DGM gives us the things when we visit for the holidays. If you all want to see, I will post pictures too.

Besides clothing, I have been working on picking up little odds and ends I can for the trip down. Here is what I have found thus far:



Mini M&Ms tubes for pressed pennies. They will go in Lilian’s stocking and then I will save the tubes to decorate. The flowers are snap bracelets—I am pretty sure they are also going to go in her stocking so not really for Disney. The headbands and lip gloss, once again, will go in her stocking. I may hold the lip gloss for the Disney trip in her car trip bag(s). (More on the car treat bags at a later point) There is a fun sparkly (as Lilian would say) bracelet that I am not sure if we will put in her stocking or if we will hold it as well. There is a set of Princess crayons, which will go in a Tinkerbell tin for her survival guide bag for in the parks.

The Mickey Notebook is mine. I am thinking I am going to use it to jot down notes while we are at Disney so I don’t forget the details for the TR and for our scrapbook.

All the above items, with the exception of the M&M tubes, were found in the dollar spot. The M&Ms were found in the checkout line, for less than a dollar too.


The last two pictures are for her car treat bags.



A Disney Princess book with stickers—she LOVES to be read to. We may hold this book to be read in the resort while others are getting ready. The Mickey activity book will be a car treat bag.

These are figurines--the Tinkerbell and MMCH sets. We have the princess set and Lilian just loves to play with them. We usually take them while we are traveling. I will take them out of the packages and give them her in car treat bags as well.

So there you have it, we are doing pretty well considering we still have over nine months left. I am sure we will be picking up things here and there. I hope all is well with you and yours.

Up Next: The Beginnings of a Schedule?

What a great start! Love all the swimsuits, t-shirts, and stocking stuffers. Keep the pictures coming! I love to see what others buy for their trips and especially their princesses.

Thank you!!! I like what we have gotten as well thus far. I am curious to see what she ends up getting from her grandmother.

So, do your kiddos where only Disney character clothing while at Disney? Such fun things to think about . I think I am avoiding my school work!

Ashton's clothes in May were ALL Disney themed...Dayne (16) would not even consider it
Have a great weekend and holiday!

We do a lot of disney themed clothes also. Lindsey is getting a little older so it's a bit harder to find her stuff that isn't too toddler like. She's more into Hannah Montana, High School Musical, Jonas Bros, Taylor Swift, etc. She's in the tween stage.

I don't imagine Lilian will be wearing Disney apparel when she is 16 either.

Have you seen the talks about pillowcase dresses? I am thinking of buying a pattern from Etsy to make her some not just for Disney but all summer too. DGM may have taken care of her wardrobe for me. Of course I have other clothing not Disney themed that she may be wearing too. Its a little early, even for me, to figure out what clothing will be coming with us!

I'm joining your PTR!!! I can't wait to hear about it, we are planning for the end of September 2010! (and I love exclamations as well!!)

I am still reading all your posts, but thought I would tell you that I was subbing and that we returned from a wonderful trip with 8 people in October. It was my dd's 9th bday and we went with my ILS (who did NOT want to do anything separate). Ahem.

I have a full TR below, I think you will find it "enlightening" and amusing as well. We DID have a great time, but I also prepared myself for going with a larger group, which I highly suggest!

I hope everyone had a lovely Thanksgiving if you celebrate it! We decided to spend time with my sister's family as we have not had Thanksgiving with them since I was in college!

While down there my sister tried to convince me Epcot is not suitable for children!! I simply said it is mine and DH's favorite park and there is lots for children to do there! We will be going regardless. She did not seem to believe nor thrilled by it. What would she care anyway? She also did not believe me it is Disney's Hollywood Studies now not MGM.

I probably will not be on much in the next two weeks. I am in the final two weeks for my classes and will be scrambling to get all my work done as it is. So, I am hoping you will all bare with me and stay with me during my short absence.
