It’s time to link up with Tanya for Prime Purchases. You better believe I am going to start taking notes for Christmas shopping ideas!
I am wanting to get ahead of my usual game this year – which is that I totally buy everything between Cyber Monday and December 23rd – ish. I want to do this to spread out the expense, partly. We draw names and/or only buy for kids and grandparents on both sides of the family. Don’t be afraid to be the one to suggest this in your family. I bet others would jump on board. A fun thing we added to my side of the family is instead of buying new gifts – a white elephant/re-gift exchange. We had a lot of fun with that last year with the stealing of each others’ opened gifts! This works great especially because we usually do it the day after Christmas and everyone has already received plenty of gifts.
I did really well this month. I am very purposely trying to reduce my clothing, Amazon and grocery spending. We have had a very expensive summer and fall with college tuition, renovation supplies (our hall bathroom), and the higher costs of everything. We also had lots of birthday gifts to buy and meals out to celebrate this fall. I say this to keep it real because I know many of you are in the same boat. We only carry our mortgage debt and that is important to us. We have three cars that are 10 years old and I am also worried about when one of them poops out on us.
I love, love, love my new belt bag/fanny pack and have used it every day since it arrived. Would this make a good gift for someone on your list?
I love, love, love my new hair milk that smells amazing and really helps detangle my fine hair.
I like my no show socks, but they really make my feet sweat. I think it’s due to the fact that I am wearing them for so many hours. I think for a few hour stint they would be fine. I have had to take them off halfway through the day. Maybe this will be ok as it gets colder. My classroom is so warm right now.
I can never seem to find these dish scrubber replacement heads in the right brand at Kroger so I ordered a pack to keep on hand. Boring, but necessary. I hate using them past their prime.
And, finally my fall t-shirt has gotten quite a bit of wear. I plan to keep wearing it in November. I didn’t have a fall tee!
So what have you primed this month?
