My girls got some great gifts this year for Christmas. I have deemed it, “The year of the doll” because most of their gifts were dolls or were doll related. They got the Disney Princess Sparkle baby dolls, at least 5 Barbie dolls each, one got a stroller and the list goes on.
I did a great job of finding the best shopping deals out there this holiday season and I think that was key in staying within the budget I set for each girl.
I went full throttle for Black Friday. I followed My BFDeals, I found the Black Friday ads online and printed the pages with the items I was looking for and I shopped at Toys R Us at midnight freezing and tired to get the best deals on the toys my daughters asked for. Then after Thanksgiving, but before Christmas, I kept my eyes on the Sunday ads to compare shopping prices and actually found a toy I had purchased at Target $5 less at Meijer. I was so excited for that savings!
For 2010, I think I’ll keep my eyes peeled for a great deal on a freezer. Then I can stock up on chicken,steak and other frozen foods when the grocery stores are having great deals.
It’s all about spending less on quality merchandise for 2010!
