Christmas is coming the goose is getting fat…

OK all, do you realize that we are now only just over 3 months shy of Christmas?  Where in the world does the time go?  I feel like it was just yesterday that the peanut was having her first Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, Birthday, Easter…and now we are starting the season over. 

I love the holidays and the gift giving that it brings.  I love that look on my friends and families faces as they open a well thought out gift that they will enjoy either short term (i.e. chocolate) or long term (say, hmmm, my iPod!).  It’s just such a fun time!

In my family we also like to give gag gifts to everyone.  Something the person did over the last year that can be easily said with just that silly something found at a flea market, CVS or often these days, online.  Particularly now that I live in the boonies, I do all kinds of shopping online.   You can get anything on here folks, I’ve even bought a car online before…yeah, I’ll have to share that tale sometime.  Funny story by the way!  Leave it to me…

The only problem with buying online, particularly if you are buying direct, is that you have to pay full price for things unless you have a coupon code.  I’ve found there are places you can go and find them, but never in one place…well, today that has changed!  Yeah, I found the place!!

It’s called the Coupon Chief!!  Click on that link to go there.

I could totally get my sister this gourmet coffee basket from Target Deals with the $5 off $50 coupon.  How cool is that?

Or wouldn’t Michael be so suprised to find the PDA he wants in his stocking Christmas morning?   There’s a code from Best Buy Deals for 10% off of them people!  Very cool.

And tell me Ellie Mae would not look adorable in this for Halloween?  We don’t have a Petco, or any other pet store anywhere near us so I’d have to order it online anyway.

Wild Things Peacock Halloween Costume

Petco Coupons has free shipping code for orders of $50 or more.  I don’t know about you but free is my favorite price.


Anyway, at the risk of sounding too commercially, I’m going to stop now…and start shopping!  Woo hoo!

Later taters.

    Hey girl! Sorry I haven’t been by in a while. Life has been…well….life.
    I love free too! It’s my favorite price! I will check out that coupon site, thanks for the suggestion – and that little doggy in the costume CRACKS ME UP! Thanks for the giggle!

    God bless 🙂

    I don’t do Christmas. Truly. My family around me does but I don’t.. Bah Me! It lost its shimmer for me when commercialism took over and gifts became unappreciated and just a chore. Maybe, with Bells being two this Christmas, I will get the joy back. hugs, g

    Yeah, but if you were medieval or renaissance you would have SO many more celebrations… you really should check out that Medieval Feasts and Fasts site… it’s cool! And you learn more about our Christmas celebration (and advent and Epiphany too0.
    Happy days with the dog (I hope). Cool weather is coming again!
