Well, I guess its Christmas time now! My kids have already read and reread the Toys R Us and Target toy catalogs, circling everything they have ever wanted. They also circled a lot of stuff that they don’t even know what it is. They are 2 and 4. The struggle is real.
Kids are so funny with toys. It is always so much fun going down the toy isles with them at the store. They get SO excited about everything. You just can’t replicate that amount of joy. They seriously look like they are about to explode with all the possibilities that toy isle holds. Getting them to leave that toy isle is another story but let’s focus on the positives here…
Justin has done a lot of comparison shopping on the web and has found that so far, Target has the best overall pricing, especially with their coupons they released with the toy catalog. They have a “25% off Toys, Sporting Goods or Art/Craft Item” on the first page that expires TODAY. That was huge for us! We are about done. A few stocking items and pjs and we’re ready to bring ’em down the chimney. Target is also offering free shipping and free returns through 12/25. So go get your shopping on people!
I am hoping to finish ALL my gifts by Black Friday. I want to be able to relax and enjoy the holiday season without the stress of stupid shopping weighing on my shoulders. I want to get my kids fun stuff but I also want to give them a really fun holiday season with lots of fun and magical memories. They are both at an age where they can really appreciate the holiday and they are already so excited. I can’t wait!
Good luck shopping out there! The crowds get a bit aggressive this time year! Which brings to… BE KIND TO ONE ANOTHER! Please.
