Finally Getting Things Done

Now that I'm feeling better, it's so nice to get things done. I was finally able to get outdoors and clean up the outdoor toys, put away the autumn decor, clean out some garden stuff, and finally clean out my bay of the garage so I can now park in it.

Today, Bubby and I bundled up (it was only 16 degrees this morning) and we did some Christmas shopping. Hubby and I have a budget limit per person we shop for since we have SO MANY people to shop for! Here's what I came up with:

My sister requested a nice shower caddy for college. I found a beautiful one at Walmart for under budget.

My mom requested new hand towels for her bathroom. At Big Lots, I was able to pick out 6 beautiful towels and had enough money left over for a lovely collection of her favorite confections.

For my nephews who are now sharing a room, I went to Lowes and picked out one of those rugs with the roads on it. It was $20.00 (under budget for the two of them), but I had a coupon for $10.00 off any purchase of $25.00 or more. So, I picked out a boot rack for $4.98 and a small package of wood screws to fix my dining room chairs. I spent a total of just under $18.00!

My brother loves a certain movie that I was able to get at Walmart for $5.88 on DVD!!

I also found for Bubby two wooden peg puzzles (he likes peg puzzles) for $5.00 for both!

Well, off I go to get more things done!

Congrats on your pregnancy!

I understand what shopping at christmas with a budget is like! Now if only the Postal service wasn't charging an arm and a leg for shipping!
