So I spent a ton of money yesterday at Toys R Us. But I am done with Natalie's Christmas I think.
She is getting the purpliest bike in the world. Check this out!
The bike was a deal I think, $89.99 for $50.63 after all their discounts.
Then I went over the to Crayola isle. They were doing BOGO on Colorwonder kits. I got every single kind they had. That was a lot of fun! I also got a free special tin of crayons in the promo. I don't think these will be presents, I feel funny giving her things that I believe she should have anyway.But a couple of them are Birthday presents.
I took advantage of the buy $40 in Disney movies and get $10 promo too. I got 4 Christmas movies, two to give as presents. Now these I will wrap up, she won't remember she picked them out (shopping with a 2.75 yr old is easy peasy).
Then I went to the board game isle. They had tons of ages 3+ games that were $3.99. If you spent $25 then you got another $10 card. So I got 7 different games for her playroom for $30.58. I'll be getting a $14 rebate and got a $10 GC. So in the end, paid $6.58 for some great classic games :) These will be for birthday I think.
It was a cart full of stuff and the little boys behind us commented on it. Natalie leaned forward and proudly proclaimed "Yep, my mama has MONEY today!". That is what happens when you tell her in the car that she can pick out anything she wants for $20 or less. If she picks out something too expensive she'll have to pick out something else because mama isn't made of money, but she has money today. That is all she picked up on and even after me prodding, she didn't pick out a toy.
So all in all, she'll get a bike and helmet, a lego table, a santa mickey, 2 movies, 2 generic play doh kits and several tubs of playdough. I've also found the red glitter snowflake, the red bouncy ball and the red box she can sit in. The angel is becoming an issue, she upped her request, it is now a red glittered sequined angel that she can put her money in. Um yikes.
I rented a Uhaul yesterday and moved all the items I am keeping out of the garage. I can now start the task of itemizing for my taxes next year. Since I'll be paying birth expenses OOP, I'll be able to itemize. I'll rent another Uhaul when the big house sells to move my upstairs items out. I don't have a lot of stuff up here so it should work out ok.
Today we are going over to the little house. I'll be cleaning and unpacking. I decided it was better to do this in stages than to move everything in a big huge mess. the Uhaul was just $75, even with 2 rentals, it is way less than the $650 we paid the movers last time.
I think that is it for now, I have pictures that I'll post when my batteries are charged.
