We had a wonderful time, but did have our moments!

Pretty much down to my hips on one side, but nice and perky on the other

My big score of the season has been 3 Samsung Tab 2 7 Student Edition tablets for $250 each. The student edition comes with a keyboard and I forget what else, and sells for the same price as the regular Tab 2 7. I researched and researched and finally bit the bullet 2 weeks ago and got them at Target. Three days later I couldn't find them online anywhere!!!

Today I went to overstocks.com and got dollhouse furniture-- 6 rooms for $56 total, free shipping.

Sunscreen, hand lotion, and saw the posting for Chapstick, good idea!

We went to a local festival last night and I found a wooden angel for my mom. One more thing to mark off the list!

Good luck to everyone and keep the great ideas coming!

So Bath and Body has a 10 off 30 coupon out. Does anyone know if they frequently have coupons that are better? I want to buy my 10 year old a few things for Christmas but I'm not familiar with that store.

I'm not done reading the thread yet (on page 10!).

The more I think about ideas for DD (she will be 5), the more I feel overwhelmed about how much stuff she already has!! Ha! I need to clean out her room adn either make her play with what she has or donate some of it!!

Ideas for her:
a desk and desk accessories (she loves playing at my desk and will start kindergarten next year).
bike
digital camera (an inexpesive one)
She is on a competition cheer team, so her uniform and practice clothes will be part of Christmas, too. (That stuff isn't cheap!!! LOL)

DS (will be 1) has a lot of hand-me-down toys from big sister, so he will get a couple toys and lots of clothes!
Ideas for him:
dump truck set
Lego Read and Build books
rocking horse
a tricycle or Big Wheel

I have no idea what to get DH besides a new cell phone. He's been carrying the original iPhone since it came out and now the screen has been busted for at least a year. He hasn't complained once, so I think it's time to reward him with a new, shiny one! haha

My want list is mostly practical:
a new vacuum
new pots and pans
grey boots

I officially started Christmas shopping this weekend. I got DD a spa kit and rubber stamp set at Michaels. I had 2 50% off coupons and got the Spa Kit for $13 and Rubber Stamp set for $8. Ok these will most likely be her Birthday gifts but her birthday is Dec. 24th so it like Christmas.

I also cashed in my points on reward sites and got a $25 gift card to Amazon and $10 Panera gift card, both for DH. I fill his stocking with gift cards.

I feel really good knowing I have started.

good for you!! I reaaaaaally need to get it in gear! I am NEVER this far behind, but Like I said before, we wanted to pay off our trip, and we have had a lot of school expenses and events~ things should slow down a little this month...

Great ideas! Yep, I told my kids they have to put 5-10 toys in the donation box before Santa brings anything. I didn't even think of this but saw a vTech camera at Costco for about $26! Poor pixellation for your 5YO (you're almost better off with a cheaper P&S camera and good cover) but gives me a great idea for my 3YO's gift list. And I'm getting pots and pans too! Found a sweet stainless steel set on Amazon that I might get.

I'm waiting for an American Girl free shipping code! So I'm stalled on my shopping.

And my in laws always want to exchange lists. Oh well!

Just finished birthday shopping for DNephews. We have a 10/31 bday on one side of the family, and a 11/2 bday on the other side. I've got some sewing to do for them, but the shopping is done.

Yay - I've officially started my Christmas shopping!

My youngest brother is already 1/2 way done thanks to American Eagle's free shipping yesterday.

I was having a hard time with DD11, but I think we've got her list pretty much figured out now and already got some of it at Amazon (gotta love Prime free shipping). I know most of her other gifts will come from there too, but right now, they're just sitting on her wish list. I'm checking it daily to see when/if any of the prices drop.
So far, she's getting:
Will definitely be checking here too for any ideas/deals!
