Yep, you guessed it, I changed the subject! lol The last couple days I’ve been thinking about everyone’s Christmas list. William’s being more pitiful than Andre’s. They never tell me about the good stuff they want, they just give me the little stuff. So I have snoop around to figure out the rest.
The economy sucks and we’ve been hit hard this year. Between the house in NC and the vet bills, we’re just starting to rebound. (knock on wood) I know you guys have money-saving tips for the holidays. Care to share? I’ve already started looking through eBay and Amazon for ideas, but damn, you can’t even look to them for deals anymore. I saw a Ralph Lauren jacket for like $300…. I could get a better deal at the outlet. A bike that Andre saw at the PX, and liked, was actually cheaper at the PX than eBay or Amazon… but it was on sale at Toys r us. Which gives me another problem. There’s no storage in this house, so where do you hide a friggin bike LOL.
William is already threatening me with Black Friday shopping but I just can’t do it. I used to when Andre was younger and I was more patient. But I’ve found I like people a lot less than I used to and all the bumping and pushing just pisses me off now. Everyone has their secrets on how they save money during the holidays. I also know that we haven’t technically entered “the holiday” zone yet. But in this house we are getting a late start. We normally start Christmas shopping in September. So come on… share people, how do you save money while Christmas shopping?
