Biting the Christmas Bullet - Did Some Shopping

November 10th, 2014 at 03:48 pm

On of the boys for Christmas had one item on his list: a Nintendo 3DS XL. I priced them a few weeks ago and they appeared to be $200 - still a stretch because I don't spent that much on each child.

I got the ads from my mom this morning. I've given up couponing and shop for groceries at Sam's Club or Aldis, but figured I should start keeping an eye on things.

Target had the item on sale for $174.99 and I had a $10 off of $100. It shouldn't have worked, the cashier told me, but it did, so I ended up paying $168.xx after using the debit RED card. I had a $100 bill for Christmas plus DH's $80 fro his second job with bio dad. Paid cash. One child done.

Now moving on to tackling the next desired purchase. Will have to pick one item and start strategizing.

    Nice! My max is about $150 per child at Christmas. My oldest wants a drawing tablet, so is thinking of just requesting cash. It's $165 on Amazon, which is also above my threshold, but I may also go for it. Not sure yet!
