Christmas Shopping


Members Were Sparked
This Sparked Me!

I start my Christmas shopping early.... I always buy my paper and cards at the after Christmas sales., and also can pick up items like cookie tins, ornaments and candles really cheap. Then throughout the year I buy as I find articles on sale. I have 2 huge boxes of gifts and and a never ending supply of card of cards and paper right now. It is also a surprise to see what I have gotten throughout the year....It is fun and saves time and money..

    I have done this since my kids were small and being a single Mother at the time I could afford to give them a great Christmas each year. Toys also went on clearence after the holidays and all the overstock items were marked down. Barbie's and all thier stuff, Lego's and such never went out of style. Plus I always had their Birthday gifts! All I had to do was go down in one of my boxes!

    We think a LOT alike! Thank you for all the comments on my blogs today. Couldn't figure out how else to tell you how much it meant! You were the only 3 of 3!

    I used to wrap my gift with newspaper as its just getting thrown out anyways but other people don't like that.......
