I got a couple of more gifts when I was on holidays. Miranda loves pigs and Alana loves Octupus's. I happened to find each of them hooks, like for coats or towels or whatever lol. Both of them look like they are antique but aren't. Mir's is the whole pig with 2 hooks underneath and Alana's is the whole Octupus and all the legs are the hooks. They were both $7.99.

Two more done  ;D

Keep an eye out for clearance toys not only on the clearance isle but regular toy shelves too. I found 2 huge boxes of Legos at walmart in the toy section that were originally  $80 and $60 that were half off, score! Would of loved for them to be cheaper but I knew if I waited to go down more they would of been gone. We got all the kids tablets a few months ago and now some big lego sets so I'm thinking a couple small things and calling it done, gonna keep it small this year.

Oh Wow, Norma!  Now you have me wondering if this is at all Walmarts?  They do the half price thing around Christmas too, but they sell out so fast it is hard to catch it.  Good find!

Picked up 2 jar candles, one for each of the girls that were on sale. Also a book that Miranda has requested for Christmas and 3 pairs of socks for Zachary that have pictures on them. Ankle ones that he wears all the time lol.

Bit by bit or gift by gift I'm slowly getting there lol. It is September afterall and Christmas will be here before we know it.

Time to get this thread moving again  ;D  ;)

Christmas will be very tight around here this year, but, like many of you, I will just do the best I can.

So far, I have pre-ordered a Jodi Picoult book for Madelyn and the Bruce Springsteen bio for Doug as well as a small backpack for Madelyn, pj bottoms for Molly, Vera Bradley notebooks for the girls to be used as journals or sketch books and a set of mechanical pencils for each of them.

I am mulling ideas around in my head for everyone right niow.  I may buy some things for Corey that he will need once he gets his own place - please tell me he will get his own place someday! - such as pots and pans, dishes, etc.  Hopefully, I will be able to come up with good ideas for everyone that we can afford and that do not look too skimpy.
