Christmas Shopping Update

19 Oct

Days til Christmas: 67!

Presents left to buy: 19 & 4 halves, plus immediate family


I am sticking to my plan of only shopping the first week of the month.  But I haven’t stopped working towards my Christmas Shopping Plan! This week, I’ve been busy working online to earn Christmas money.

This Week’s Progress:


Total earnings: 

  • Amazon $20 GC
  • Ebay/Paypal – $116
  • Cashback sites – none yet
  • Cash – none yet

Amount Spent OOP: $69

Total Saved:$98

Savings Used:

  1. $10 K-Mart gift card for 280 My Coke Rewards & $5 Birthday Club Coupons
  2. $30 Kohl’s Cash from my last purchase, $5 email coupon, & 20% off home mailer
  3. 30% off clearance at Aeropostle


Wow!  I’m proud of what I have earned so far and hope to double that this week. 

The bad news – the gifts I have been watching and waiting to go on sale are gradually increasing in price!  One of the toys has increased from $69 to $99!! 

What do you think – will prices get better as the season draws closer or should I buy now?
