My Christmas Shopping...

...is almost in the bag!!

I cannot believe how many awesome deals I've found over the past few months. We found toys on clearance with an additional 50% off at K-Mart a couple of months ago that allowed us to buy:

A $30.00 American Girl "type" doll for $2
A $29.00 ride/walker toy for $5
A $40.00 set of Tinker Toys for $11
A $25.00 special edition princess Barbie for $7

We also found an officially Licensed, never opened Chicago Bears watch at the local resale shop for my Brother-in-law. Price brand new? $45.00 - we paid less than $10!

I paid $5.00 each for the first two seasons of Roseanne - one of my sister's favorite shows!

We got a $45 hair styler for my niece on clearance for $9

We paid $5 for fleece throws that were going for $25 LAST Christmas (we picked one up for my sister-in-law, my mother and my mother-in-law).

And just this last weekend we found a Toy Story 3 Operation game that 'was' going for $29 when I saw it at Barnes and Noble a while back. I snagged it for $9 on clearance at my local Wal-Mart.

These deals were just too good to pass up so we snapped them up and put them aside for Christmas gifts. My original list of 19 people (excluding the hubs) is now whittled down to just 8 more people!!!

People think I'm nuts Christmas shopping so early but with Christmas almost always on the brain I've always got my eye out for a 'perfect' gift and when we can find that gift for less than 1/2 the regular price why not? It makes the budget much easier to manage come December!

Am I the only one who does this? My shelves are starting to look like Santa's toy factory but this allows us to buy much 'nicer' gifts than we would ordinarily be able to afford and I figured that, even if the general world rolls their eyes and says "ugh, Christmas! I can't believe you're already shopping for Christmas!" My friends here at MMC would understand my excitement!
