Shopping during lunch break turned out to be a good idea!

www.coldwatercreek.com has 40% off and free shipping (good for outlet and sale items too), so I picked up:
Then, I ran to Target to pick up some more accessories for DD's Smash Journal and found some really cute craft kits on clearance:
  • Smash journal entertainment tags $0.99
  • Tie-dye kit $4.98
  • Pets perler bead kit $6.48
  • 52ct Crayola washable sidewalk chalk $2.18

FYI.......Disney has free shipping for a couple of days right now!

Toys R Us also has free shipping and 20% off purchase over $150, plus coupon for $30 off in-store. They're running lots of specials right now.

I already posted this on the tween thread, but thought I would post here in case anyone is interested.

DD12 is getting a Love Sac and an iPod Touch. So, needless to say, we are already over our regular budget. I still want her to have more to open, so I came up with this cheap idea: Disney Movie Night in a box.

DD loves to plan Disney movie nights for our family, but I always forget to buy decor and stuff in advance. I am going to go to Dollar Tree and buy tablecloths, napkins, plates in different colors/themes. I'll also include some decorations and some craft materials for making crafts. I am planning to put together boxes for movies that we already own, so the only cost is the decorating items! If I get ambitious, I'd like to include recipe cards/grocery lists too so that we know in advance what to shop for and what to cook.

That's a cool idea! But what the heck is a love sac? I may possibly be the only person in the world with idea?!!

According to their website, "It's not a D#*@ Beanbag." According to me, it's the world's most expensive beanbag! lol My DH found them at a mall in Dallas and loved them. I was totally against the cost until I researched them. Apparently they are worth the money. We'll see...
