Christmas 2014
« on: January 04, 2014, 06:51:16 AM »
the kids will go back to school next week and I am going to buy an amazon gift card to start my Christmas envelope - I have decided this is the best way for me to start saving Christmas - this way the money "can't" be used for other things so it will be Christmas money and it will stay that way  ;)

I bought $30 in amazon gift cards ~ I will stock pile those for Christmas - I would like to buy another one this month but we will see - might not be possible

I also have Christmas Cards for this year - I will print out a picture of the kids and put it in a card instead of paying more for the "photo" cards

I bought my white lights (mine broke 3 years ago) 4 boxes 80 cents a box  ;D ~ this was done at the beginning of the month

I might need tissue paper but I won't need bags, boxes or tags

I have sewn up 2 of these table runners for my ddMegan, for a gift for this coming Christmas!  I was tickled to find Christmas fabric on sale that has gray in it, their new home the woodwork and doors are gray.  I think she will love them!  I'm still taking one day a week and working on projects for gifts for 2014!

I've been watching local online yard sales and I picked up a Leapfrog Clickstart My First Computer plus 6 games for the kids for $30.

I always leave my in-laws till the last minute.  I'm hoping to find some things for them early this year.  What do you get for people who can afford anything they want?  I'm kind of thinking of gift cards for a night out (they are newly empty nesters) but it feels...I dunno... impersonal?

hahahahahahahaha

I was away with my daughter in Canada for the weekend and we are in the most quaint little Victorian town and  a found gifts 90% off --- couldn't resist  ;D so  mother in law and sister in law - done! Yay! - paid cash!

My plan if possible to have everyone done but the people who live in this house before November 1 --- November is filled with my younger kids birthday then Christmas - so if I only have the people in this house left to buy for my holiday should be pretty stress free and relative nicer on my bank account  ;)
