Okay, 9 more shopping weeks until Christmas. Here is how I did this week:
I got a VS coupon in the mail for a free pair of panties and $10 off a regular price purchase. I bought some body spray for $8.00 and some VS mints for $2.75. My OOP was $0.81.
I went to pick up some stuff at my booth and I saw that one of the booths was going out of business and had 50% off his already reduced prices. I got two jars of White Cat Corn popcorn (retail $7 each) for $1.50 each. My OOP was $3.22.
I found a VS Rush lipgloss for free with my last purchase that I had saved for Christmas.
I bought three Far Side Books that look new at a garage sale for a quarter each. My dad loves Far Side. At Christmas I only buy used if it looks new or if it is for DH/DS. The retail price of the books is $34.85.
I also managed to make 2 photobooks at CVS a few weeks back for my mom and MIL. They were free (I actually made extra ECB’s off of them). They are the smaller ones and were normally $11.99 each.
Gifts so far
Gift #1 – VS body spray, lipgloss, and mints (retail $18.75) paid $0.81
Gift #2 – 3 Far Side Books (retail $34.85) paid $0.75
Gift #3 – White Cat Corn & photobook (retail $18.99) paid $1.61
Gift #4 – White Cat Corn (retail $7.00) paid $1.61
Gift #5 – Photobook (retail $11.99) paid nothing
Total OOP = $4.78
I’ll decide what gifts are complete and what gifts will have more things added to them as I get closer to Christmas.
