I wasn't thinking at all about Christmas until I read your thread yesterday. Then I happened to find two adorable Mickey & Minnie Christmas ornaments NIB at a yard sale. Then at Target, their dollar section stuff was on sale for 30 cents, so I bought a few little stocking stuffers for my niece. (the candy flavored lip glosses and stickers.)

I am a single parent and Nana and the expense alone sometimes is a bit much. I was able to shave off 1/3 of the cost this year,not as good as the 2/3 I was hoping but it really is due to buying my grand daughter a airplane ticket to Disney,,and that for me is priceless.

Thought I'd post my favorite Christmas song to get others in the mood

Where are you Christmas


And here is the Budget Buster
a rather large ticket I designed and printed and laminated which will float out of a Christmas box,filled with helium balloons.
Yes that is my budget board Minnie piggy bank behind the ticket which is now empty.

I absolutely adore Christmas! This year will be a bit different, as most of our family will be taking a vacation to Disneyland during Thanksgiving. So no Black Friday shopping for me this year. The kids know that Christmas will be cut back big time this year. I'm thinking of doing a group gift for my 4 younger boys, from santa. The xbox 360 w/Kinect. My 17 year old, a smaller flat screen tv for his room. And I still have the little people castle from Walmart's last year BF shopping, for my daughter. I am an all year shopper.

It's official, we are going to Florida instead of gifts galore at Christmas. In fact, our daughter asked for only one thing, for us to replace the Ipod touch that was stolen from her. She left today for a two week vacation today, and we gave that to her early for her trip. I really hope I can contain myself not to buy a bunch of presents!!!

I did reserve our hotel for the Christmas trip this week! I got an awesome deal at an all suites Hilton near Sea World. We have season passes, so parks are free. I made ADR's for Kona on Christmas night, Holiday Wishes on the beach to follow! Ahhhhh

Finally started really shopping! This year we will probably have my kids half-sister (I call her my bonus daughter) for Christmas. Since that means 4 kids to buy for instead of 3 we are cutting back on the big presents this year. Also I've been picking up stuff on clearance or store sales. So far I have bought 3 feather hairpiece craft kits and 3 dead sea mineral manicure sets for my 2 teen dd'snd bdd who's in the same age range. My oldest has a unicorn obsession so I got a unicorn pillow pet half price at a store cosing sale for her. I also picked up the hair straightener my dd 13 wanted for about 80 percent off. For DS12 I got a mush belly (a ducky, cuz he loves them) and a nerf gun at less than half price each as well as a baseball gove that was 75 percent off and another toy gun for 80 percent off that I will give him for his birthday in Otober. I have a list of pretty much,everything else I want to get its just a matter of finding the best deal and then picking them up.
