More Shopping Done

I’m trying to get some of my Christmas shopping done now. Hubby and I made this decision now since we know that the holidays are going to be hectic for both of us. We’re going to have my In-Laws staying with us for a few weeks, Lady Ali and Fiance are visiting for a few days after Christmas, Peanut’s birthday is in mid December and Hubby’s work schedule from after Thanksgiving is relentless.

We’ve decided that if I find a sale for something that we know we can use as a gift we’re going to buy it now, especially if it’s online. This will be such a time saver for us.

I know we’re saving money for Lady Ali’s wedding, but we need to buy presents any way. Waiting until the last minute is just going to cause me stress in the long run, so I’ll when I find a bargain now, I’ll take advantage of it. If I find something with free shipping, even better, because it makes Hubby think we’re saving more. In reality we’d be spending money on gas driving from store to store, which is what we do every time we go Christmas shopping anyway.

One thing I’m buying is the Nintendo Wii Best Game 5-in-1 Sports Combo Kit with Infrared Friendly Ports – Wii-022 for Peanut. She loves playing the sports games on her Wii. So this will be perfect for her! It’s only $16.99, with free shipping. That saves me $53. I like that!

This set has five plastic parts: Tennis Racket,  Baseball Bat,  Golf Club,  Racing Steering Wheel and a Remote Controller Grip to help Peanut increase her scores. They are lightweight but durable so I don’t have to worry about these breaking.

I know that opening this on Christmas morning will make Peanut happy. It will also make me happy to save money, be able to shop from home and know that I can look for sales on the Weekly Deals section of all the time.
