Finishing Up Shopping

November 28th, 2017 at 11:04 am

I am so close to finishing my holiday shopping!

I should have done some of this shopping yesterday, as I'm sure I would have saved a few dollars more. Oh well, I'm still happy with my purchases.

Today I ordered a shirt and jeans for my husband. I also added a two pack of infinity scarves for a niece and the required christmas stocking stuffer of socks for my girls. I bought these from Kohl's using a 20% off coupon and a $5 Kohl's cash. I spent $65. The jeans were Levi's, so they didn't get a discount. Free shipping and I didn't have to browse through the store. I think I just saved myself a lot of time making those couple purchases online today!

I'm heading to Walmart to pick up an item I need for dinner, and will see if I can add a few stocking stuffers in my cart! Some are food items and would probably be less expensive at the commissary, so will wait on those and purchase next week.

After the stocking stuffers are complete, I just need to order a card/board game my daughter wants. It is $20 on Amazon. I'm going to earn more Swagbucks, then redeem for a gift card and make that purchase for free!

Right now, the Christmas category in the budget has $183 in it. I still need to make another $50 deposit in December, but will actually just send that to my mother in law. I also need to mail three packages using those funds. I think we may come in UNDER budget! I will do a detailed run down of gifts and cost once I have it all done.

    Awesome!!! Isn't it a great feeling?! My goal this year is to finish earlier than last year...I'm almost finished too! I've even wrapped about 7 gifts! I'm going to wrap more tonight. I don't have a large immediate family, so the list isn't huge. Still have to buy gift cards for teachers, etc.

    It's a fantastic feeling. After I made an online purchase yesterday and realized how close I was to being done, I felt a huge sense of relief! I have also wrapped gifts. I hope to get more wrapped today and then as each of the online orders arrive I will get them wrapped as well. My list was short too...eight people including myself. It makes a huge difference.

    I hope you come in under budget. I mailed two packages yesterday and I about had to have smelling salts when he told me the total. Yikes.

    Wow, you have your gifts wrapped to. My hat goes off to you!
