Christmas shopping issues

Anybody else have a hard time saying enough?
Seriously, I've been done with my kids since Halloween. But in the past week I've bought toy story 3 on blue ray for ds (it was $20 on amazon and it was either spend $15 more or pay $8 for shipping on my dads gift so I figured it was basically $12).
Then we sold our old tv and we used the money to buy a udraw as a family gift.
And now I've been wanting to get ds a metal wagon forever and I just found one on diapers.com. It was marked down from $120 and then my mom ordered it so she could get the new customer discount. On top of that I wasn't going to order it but she offered to pay half so I spent $35 on a $120 wagon.
That is it! Good thing Christmas is coming soon...
And yes, I can afford this. We do not have debt and even with these extras we don't spend nearly as much as a lot of you mommies!

Exactly!  And I'm a sucker for a good deal.  I have no desire to buy him any more full price stuff but things like this wagon, I just can't pass it up!

 I also cannot pass up a bargain.  My DD (17yo) knows she can get almost anything out of me if the price is good-esp. really good.  I bought a ton of clothes on Black Friday for both of us (not even for Christmas presents!-egads).

LOL we're doing the same thing.  We've been shopping all year, but we keep finding "one more thing".
