Christmas Gifts, Dungeons and Dragons, Insurance and More

November 7th, 2019 at 09:00 pm

I've purchased several Christmas gifts this week. I have bought two items each for our daughter's. I also made a photo book for my husband through SnapFish. It is full of pictures of him and our daughter's. I originally planned to do the photo book for Father's Day but I didn't stay motivated and focused. I finally made the effort and got it done. It will be delivered by next Saturday and I paid $27 with shipping.

Our youngest daughter is starting to play Dungeons and Dragons with some new university friends. Does anyone have experience and point me to a book or something that might be helpful as she learns the game? I thought it would make a great Christmas gift.

Our renters and auto insurance payment made it on to our credit card yesterday. I do have the full amount saved, $2,616. I recalculated how much I need to save monthly in order to have enough to pay future bills and the registrations on all three cars and came up with $366. I had increased our savings after we got our daughter's car in May, but didn't quite start it soon enough, so I had to play catch up this last month. I'm primarily posting this for my own record.

With Veteran's Day coming up, the stores are offering all sorts of discounts. Amazon is offering their Prime Membership to military affiliated individuals for $79, which is $40 off the regular price. We actually just renewed in September, but I went ahead and took advantage of the offer. This extends our membership until September 2021.

I think we will do some clothes shopping this weekend for a few needed items we need and want before the holidays. We will attempt to take advantage of some discounts, but at the same time not spend too much money!

    I've read your blog for years, but never commented. My family and I play Dungeons and Dragons a few times a month. We love it! I would recommend the Player's Handbook and Xanatha's Guide to Everything if she doesn't have any books. Amazon very often has the books for 1/2 of regular/retail price. They have also been matching Target's B2G1 game offer. Gamers also love fun dice. You need the 7 piece dice set, which has 7 different dice. Different dice are used for different rolls when you are playing. If you search for DnD dice, you should find numerous pages of dice companies.

    @Amber, I know...it's been a very fast year!! And Thanksgiving is a very late, so Christmas will arrive fast soon after.

    @Tracy, thank you for being a regular reader and thank so very much for your DnD book recommendations and advice on the dice! You have given me a great place to start.

    Hmm .. I'm going to have to see how much we have in our Prime fund to see if we can do this!

    Amazon deal is for military affiliated. I did edit my post just now. Maybe you do have the affiliation, but I wanted to clarify. So sorry if I got your hopes up!

    No problem. Smile I’m glad there are deals out there for those who serve our country!

    That's great there are deals for the folks in the military and their families.

    It's crazy how quickly 2019 has flown by.
