Christmas Challenge Update

Time for the Christmas Challenge update! There are 7 more shopping weeks until Christmas.

First, I spent full price on a $2.99 Llama llama Red pajama doll. It is one of my nephews favorite book and that seemed like a great price even if it wasn’t on sale 🙂

JC Penny had a 90% off summer wear sale so I got a junior henley top for $2.20 (regular $22). It is super cute and will be a great gift!

I also bought plans for a homemade play kitchen that I am going to try to build for DS this Christmas. It is entirely made out of cardboard (but I think I am going to use corregated plastic so it holds up better and is easier to wipe off). I paid $8 for the plans. I’ll keep you posted as I buy the other needed items and I’ll take a picture when it is finished!

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
Gift #6 – Llama llama red pajama doll (retail $2.99) paid $3.21 (tax made it go over retail)
Gift #7 – Juniors shirt (retail $22.00) paid $2.20
Gift #8 – Play kitchen (homemade – $8 spent so far)

Total OOP = $18.19

I’ll decide what gifts are complete and what gifts will have more things added to them as I get closer to Christmas.
