Christmas Purchase

November 15th, 2014 at 04:22 pm

We have stayed home today, since snow is falling and causing accidents on roads. I made sure to purchase groceries for the week yesterday with the intention of staying home this weekend.

Of course, just because I'm home doesn't mean no spending. Thanks to the internet I was able to purchase one of the bigger gifts for my daughter on eBay. It currently sells new for about $177 on Amazon. I was able to get one in nearly new for $130, which included shipping. I'm definitely pleased about that.

I put the charge on my new Southwest Rapids Rewards Plus card that arrived in the mail yesterday. All new purchases will be applied to this card to meet the $2K spending requirement. I have already put gas ($40) and one of my grocery runs ($25) on the card, too.

I'm discussing my Christmas planning and tasks completed on Your Organized Friend. I think I have about seven posts you can check out (make sure to scroll down to see them all). The goal is to get some things complete early so that I'm less stressed in December. I think it is going to work!

Are you done shopping for Christmas? Have you started at all?

    I don't plan on driving anywhere this weekend either - today I walked 1.25 miles to the library to return an item and then on the way home stopped at Walgreen's to buy a chocolate orange. Smile (I wait all year for the chocolate oranges to come out again... they don't have Terry's this year though. Ferraro's aren't quite as good I think.)

    Tomorrow I plan to walk to Russ's grocery store which is about 1/4 of a mile from me to do some grocery shopping. So, in other words, even though I am not driving anywhere, I am spending money this weekend. Big Grin

    I bought 2 Christmas gifts already. I also charged my tuition to my new Southwest card so I only have $100 left to charge which will be taken care of this week when I pay another bill Smile

    I have made about half the candles I need for Christmas in the past two weekends (about 35 so far). I hope to have them completed by Thanksgiving weekend so I can bag them up and be ready to deliver them or hand them out.

    I have the Christmas list completed but haven't made any purchases yet. Most the nieces and nephews have asked for gift cards or a "do something with auntie" gift which makes it easier but I also have to be creative.

    That's my goal too! I think I read all of your posts. I'm going to steal your idea and make a baking list too.

    Yes, scottish girl, steal away! Anything to have less stress during the holidays, right?

    Yup, I did my grocery shopping for the week yesterday knowing the storm was coming... it's been snowing here all day! Beautiful!
