WOOHOO! Knocked a few things off my Christmas list

Every year the cousins exchange gifts on my side of the family and then the adult kids/spouses each exchange a gift. So I have to buy 4 gifts for the kids and 2 for us. With us having one more kid to buy for (both from Santa and with the gift exchange) this year and me not working this is really difficult. We have already cut our Santa budget in half and the baby is only getting one toy plus his stocking stuffers and the pj's they all open on Christmas Eve. 

So here is how we are being frugal already

Julianna:

Dh just got a iPhone 4 for $.99 so we are giving his old iPhone3 to her. We are going to get her a girly case. She wanted a Ken Doll and Barbie Accesories and Target had a 25% off Barbie stuff today. So I got the Dating Ken Doll for $15 instead $20 and a pool for $11 instead of $15, both were already marked down.

Jr:

I was selected to be a Kmart influencer so I used the $50 gc towards the Leap Pad. I will add an App card and a case.

My nephew wanted Hot wheels track, Target had a 25% off coupon for Hot Wheels so I got the TRex track for $16 instead of $21. 

Jacob:

Ever since I saw the VTECH learning cube advertised on here I have wanted it but I was like man $50 is a lot for a toy. Well now they have it for $40, free shipping and a 20% off coupon. As soon as my unemployment payment hit the card I will order it. :-)

My other nephew has a Leap Pad so I ordered a $20 app card off amazon it was $11 with $8 shipping but I had a $5 credit for CM. so I got it for $16.
