I'm dreaming of a cheap Christmas...

Chistmas time is upon us. I love Christmas! I love the smells, the lights, the food, the music, the decorating. I love all the festive stuff. I love seeing family that we don't get to see often. I love hearing my kids talk about baby Jesus. It is so cool to hear them learn about our savior and know it is being hidden in their little hearts. LOVE IT.

I also, love the gifts. I love finding presents for people that i know they will enjoy. I love finding a great deal on these presents... This year is no exception. We will be trying to spend even less this year because we have put most of our extra cash into getting our home ready to sell.

Dan and I will be making a list of who we have to buy for and setting our budget accordingly. I have been buying for my kids throughout the year so hopefully I will be done with all their gifts very soon.

A few highlights I have seen working are the toy coupons on One of my favorites is the $5 off Mr. Potato Head Spud bud. At Target they have a Santa Spud for $5.99. (I found him by stocking stuffers) After coupon he is only $0.99!!! I was able to print 2 coupons from each computer we have and so I bought four.

I'm keeping an eye out for any other great deals on toys. They ball popper was marked down at our Target to $17. With $5 coupon it was only $12. This is a really fun toy that my kids LOVE.

Have you found any awesome deals we shouldn't pass up? Keep me posted and I will let you know if I find anything worth doing a happy dance for.

Meijer has the singing gloworm thing for 7.99 today, with the $3 coupon, it is $4.99. Each of the kids has had this toy and loved it, so West is getting it for Christmas!
