Shopping, Shopping, Shopping


It's a rough day today. LOL! I have some "shopping" to do. Would you think I'm crazy if I told you that I've already started Christmas shopping? Yeah. Probably. But I start in August every year.

Did you know that toy clearance happens twice a year? January and July.


Knowing that, I start my searches early. It was easy when the kids were little and any toy was a good toy. But now that they are older they're getting a little harder.


But today at Walmart I scored on several items marked down from $8 to $1 and one item was $5 off. Amazon.com is also a great deal if you watch. They are super competitive with stores, and I can usually get things $5-7 cheaper than I would in a brick and mortar store. Plus with Super Saver Shipping I even save extra (including gas).


Besides the little bit of holiday shopping that I got done today. I just emptied my cart at 2Peas. What did I get, well except for those Pilgrim stamps that everyone else scooped up, I was quite happy with my haul. Here are a few of the items on their way to me in the next few days:

Some paper from this Cosmo Cricket line:

I can't wait to color these houses with my Copic Markers:

Love this Bella Blvd Fall line:

And this little paper doll line by My Little Shoebox is adorable:



And I'm thinking baby girl display for a friend (or layout) with these My Mind's Eye playing cards:







Those are just a few of the items I got (I saved up so that I could get a bunch of new CHA goodies--I'm so excited to play--plus I SUPER purged my office.)

I'm also perusing the new American Crafts Catalog to see what awesome goodies are coming out. That's like shopping, right?! ;) Why do these companies torture us like this? How can you pick and choose between two fabulous lines. It's hard a life, I tell you. (And a good day!)
