That's how my parents did it, and well...I guess you can't take that out of a girl.
That's exactly what we did with DD. She got a cheap iPod shuffle (refurbed) and when she proved she was responsible with that, we upgraded to the iPod touch when she asked for that for her birthday. You're not alone

I noticed Target had a lot of new toys out today. I didn't have time to look but I'm planning to take the kids back this weekend to hopefully get ideas for the grandparents.

PBK came out with a 15% off code so I called my mom and ordered the doll canopy bed my dd wants. Hoping I'll get more of my shopping done this week too!

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

I just bought 3 of these ornaments for our sitter, with her kids' names on them. Great price!

I bought my DH his first gift yesterday. He wanted legos so I took advantage of a deal at Walmart. They have the big mine set for $39 this week instead of $89. Our Walmart did not have any but I was able to price match at Target. So he will be able to put together a big set on Christmas morning instead of a little set I was going to get him.

Did you hear a response? I have a 4 and 8 year old and wondering if it would be too young for the 8 year old. But, she loves crafts,

I got a reply to my email. Here it is:

[I]Thanks for your interest in Kiwi Crate!

Our crates are designed for children ages 3-7. We take a lot of care to design our crates in a way that is open ended so that although children across the age range may have different outcomes, they will all enjoy interacting with the projects and materials. We have had testers up to 8 years old enjoy the crates too!

I'm sorry to say that we do not have crates geared for older kids, at this time. We will let you know if this changes. In the meantime, we'd love it if you'd come hang out with us on our facebook page. We share lots of fun and educational projects that are easy to do at home, and we'd love you to join the conversation.
www.facebook.com/KiwiCrate
Please let me know if there is anything else I can help you with.
[/I]

Boo

For those who are interested in something like the Kiwi Crates but for older kids, there is a club for girls that sends craft kits out every 6 weeks. Its called The Creative Girls Club. I am not sure if I can post a link, but if you type "creative girls club" you can find it. They are pretty cute. They send 2 kits every 6 weeks and I think its 8.99 per kit.

Hope that helps!

That looks really cool! I would love to know what the p&p costs. It just says $8.99 plus p&p.

Anyway, I placed another AG order today. And one for mydollslife. They have a code for 20% off DIARIES. I also bought some tiny hair clips and barettes for their dolls at Target. I'm planning to put them together with the AG brush. I'm almost done with the girls!

YAY! I went to Kohls for the Keurig I wanted to get my husband. I got the B60 Special Edition.

They were out of the B40 (Elite.)

This one was orginally $190.

On sale for $150.

I had a 30% coupon, which brings it down to $105.

And $10 in Kohls cash, so it's $95.

And there's a $35 rebate, bringing the final cost down to $60--- from $190!!!!

They had no more Elites on the sales floor, I couldn't find any sales associates, my coupon expires tomorrow, and I was already running late. So he gets a better model than he would have. But I'm happy with his gift.

Gotta LOVE finding deals like that before Christmas!!!

Toys R Us currently has a sale on video games B1 get 1 40% off...do you think this is the only sale they will have? Don't they usually have a sale with B1 G1 free or buy 2 get 1 free sale?

I was wondering the same thing about the Toys R Us video Game sale as I have a few Wii games I need to pick up. I would hate to buy and a better deal comes out.
