Christmas Item #2 - Another Score

November 13th, 2014 at 11:25 am

My sons are at the age where they are becoming more interested in technology. The only item on one son's list was the Nintendo 3DS XL. I purchased that earlier in the week for $168.xx out of pocket (paid cash)

Another son had two items on his list, one of which was the beats headphones (blue was his preference) which are about $199 everywhere I have looked. Target. Kohls. Walmart. Just found them on Groupon for $129.99 down from $199. I purchased them and couldn't be happier.

ETA: Out of pocket with tax $142.00. Smile

This move necessitated me moving a $150 tuition payment to the 21st. But, again, cash.

Also, thank you for all the kind suggestions about dealing with insomnia. I managed to fall asleep for three hours, was awake for several, managed about another two before the alarm went off. Then came home and dozed another two hours. So I at least feel somewhat rested. Yesterday was a hazy fog.

    Glad you feel a little better! Nice score on the headphones!

    Wow - good job on the Christmas gifts. I hope you get more sleep - how about meditation tapes. I used to try them and always fell deeply asleep. I suggest the ones that are supposed to put you in deeper sleep scientifically.

    I'm interested to see what the other kids would like to Christmas. Since the (2) so far have asked for big ticket items, is that all they will get or will they get smaller gifts and stocking stuffers?

    The remaining Christmas gifts to be purchased are: a Sphero or Hellio (spelling questionable), a pair of Uggs, and a Tablet. The other gifts to be opened will be from DH and I: a 5" x 5" stitched Christmas picture and a matching ornament, and gift from their Advent Buddy (our family's version of Secret Santa). We'll also put together a family entertainment basket for everyone with some family movies, maybe a game or two, and some treats.

    We don't spend much on the kids throughout the year (they wear uniforms to school) and mostly hand-me-down/Goodwill/Target and Kohls clearance for casual/holiday stuff. We do spend on outfitting the boys for soccer and the girls for dance. We've moved away from stuff and more toward outings for individual birthday gifts. I also am paying cash for Christmas this year and feel I'm doing a decent job.

    It sounds like you found a good deal on the Beats! Did you go through Swagbucks or another cash back site when using Groupon?
