I will do that fresh cut of the trunk.....that was my problem last Christmas.....the tree lost so many needles....even tho it was fresh....the problem was....since I didnīt cut the trunk....the tree...
I've never seen a retail year like this. The competition is absolutely fierce. I do not believe for one second that the consumer is going to be easily separated from their money but that's not going to stop retailers from going all out.
I've been especially watching Amazon and WalMart go at it with Blu-Rays and DVDs. I just picked up Young Frankenstein from Amazon for $2.
Im going out on Black Friday, but today I went to Target and got some GREAT deals! They had a lot of stuff on sale through Wed. I got one toy that was normally $39.99 for $19.99 and another one that was regularly 19.99 for $15.... some of thier boxes of cards that were normally $8.99 I got for $6
I was happy with my purchases!!
I find it ironic that, in our local newspaper, there was an article about the county government laying off 22 people NOW and a few pages later a big "Don't forget to shop Charlotte County this holiday"....um...who can shop for anything but necessities when you're laying everyone off????

They're have been some great deals lately. I got my niece a strawberry shortcake doll that she wanted at walmart for $14 dollars. They had it for $25 three days before and then two days after I bought it they put it back up to $20. There is defintely going to be some bargains on friday and we are already making our game plan. I have been chosen to stay up all night and go to toys'r'us and walmart for everybody.
