Not yet...I've done some window shopping...a lot of cute things out there...I'm usually last minute:)
Just window shopping so far. Usually I've started by now, but my hours have been cut at work and I just don't have the money.
So far I only bought stuff for my dd, monster high stuff, some bath and body items, and a new laptop.
I plan on starting for my kids this Saturday. I got a 5 and 1 yr old
I've started for my kids & already bought stuff for my friends kids. We are skipping buying for family this year. We are splurging on professional photos next weekend & I'm just going to give a copy of those out as gifts. We can totally get away with the we are expecting a baby in January & don't have extra funds to use on gifts excuse this year! lol
For dd I have bought Wack-a-Mole, a pinypon set, a used leappad, & a game to go with the leappad. I've spent $42. (I actually just got done going through the Christmas pile lol)
I will probably buy her some off-brand outfits for her Bitty Baby. I plan to make her & bitty baby matching tutus & headbands. Then I think I will get her some puzzles, a $20 leappad download card, & some books and call it a day for her this year.
For ds I got a superhero model car set, a soccer ball, a rocket kit, a science kit, a few new Skylanders and there might have been a few other things.. didn't pay as much attention to his pile. I think I have spent around $40 on him as well.
I plan to get him a few more Skylanders if they release anymore between now and Christmas. He asked for an iPod for his big gift. I have a iPod touch that I no longer use so I *think* I'm going to re-set it & buy a new case and fix it all up like new for him. No sense in buying him one when I have one just hanging around. Thinking if I do that I will buy him some fun new headphones & a $20 iTunes giftcard. Does that make me a total cheapskate? I really don't think he will care. I told him that a new one was really expensive & he suggested a used one.
Wow I typed a novel, sorry! lol I have been concentrating on knocking out the last of Christmas shopping & have been making lists tonight. I'm so ready to be done. My big pregnant butt is not going to the store to fight the crowds this year.
I bought my son 2 Lego sets that were 40% off on the Clearance Rack at Kmart 3 weeks ago....never did I imagine Icould them for under $30 and they were 2 big sets!
