Thought maybe I would start this thread so we could all share on our knowledge of hot items and sales.
I will start by saying that as a former manager at JC Penney, the sale they are hold tomorrow, "the biggest sale of them all", offers some of their best prices of the year with the exception of seasonal clearance and the last two weeks before Christmas. Stores open tomorrow at 6 a.m.
Why you would be caught at the mall two weeks before Christmas, nevermind the weekend before is beyond me.
Amazon is also offering buy 2 Nintendo Ds games and receive the 3rd free.
A few years ago I told the family we were getting tooooooooo big to keep buying everybody gifts. I suggested and exchange but to no avail...our family is stock full of lunatics that love nothing better than wasting money,,,,,
So I decided I would just buy for the babies..(anyone still in school) and no body else except mom and DH.....wow, I actually have money left over between pay days....
Dh and I don't buy for each other because we get whatever we want during the year and my mom I just get gift certificates for....
The kids (3 only) just get about 30 dollars worth of stuff and the rest goes for Xmas dinner (16-18 people).....
So I still spent a little, but not as bad as it could be.
"Wal-Mart's Black Friday deals have leaked, and there are some real steals to be had:
• 50-inch flat-screen TVs for $798 (instead of some $2,000)
• Blu-ray players for $128
• Xbox with a Guitar Hero package for $199
• A microwave for $25
• Clothing for children starting at $4
• Tons of toys for under $10 each "
Lisa, Nah, nothing I want. I think we are past the point of buying presents for each other...My thing is " If I wanted it, I already have it"...and rob feels the same way. I would rather have the kids happy on Christmas and watch them get what they wanted.More fun that way... Rob and I used to do each others stocking, but then that became a "200.00 fill" with do-dads, and I didn't want /need that stuff either...SO....its all about the kids now...
