Time for another Christmas Challenge update! There are 4 shopping weeks until Christmas!
First I bought a Wii double charging dock and 4 color set sleeves for the controller/nunchuck at eforcity. I spent $18.88 ($11.69 for the charging dock and $1.80 for each sleeve) . The retail value of these was $79.98!
Next I bought vanilla handsoap and vanilla lip balm (3 sets) for $2.58 a set (retail $7.50), 2 Eco bags for $0.43 each (retail $1), and a Polar Baby w/ an Igloo home for free (retail $9.99) from the YvesRocher deal.
I also bought a “muscle man” light switch for a joke gift, LOL – it is pretty good (can’t put a pic of it up here though!) It was $6.97 (retail $9.99)
I won a $15 Best Buy gift card at work!
Finally, I bought a cordless phone for $2.99 shipped! The retail is $29.99.
My side of the family decided that they were not going to get gifts for everybody. We are still buying for the kids and the adults exchanged names. This means that four of the gifts I had are no longer needed and there are four other people that I do not need to shop for. I will be able to move some of the gifts I already had around for other people. The other ones I will just save for Birthdays!
