I just looked in my gift closet(really a tote bag) and I don't have near as much as I thought I did for the Hanukkah bags.

I'd better go shopping!

I picked up a bunch of things to be used for upcoming birthdays and/or Christmas gifts: flat iron, snow guard for car window, snow brush for car, electric toothbrush and replacement brushes; toiletry kit; outdoor picnic blanket; and a walking stick.

Ordered quite a lot from KMart today. They were clearing a lot of their Winter items so picked some up. I will put most of them away for birthdays for early in the New Year. As they are all Winter clothes we will not need them for the next few months.

Finally found a critter camera for my husband. At tractor supply of all places. He is done now except for a few gift cards I’ll get at the end of the month when the grocery store has bonus points and some dark chocolate Moose Munch (if I can find it).
I sent a text to my son- Santa was finishing up and wanted to know if he needed or wanted anything else. He wanted a wireless printer and/or a new mouse, but he knew they were expensive. He’s trying to write a book! This is the child who wanted nothing to do with a book when he was younger. I stood on my head to try to interest him in reading. I guess some of it worked. He’s dad bought him both.
I found a couple of bottles of wine that he likes and hasn’t been able to find. And a few other grocery items. He’s now done I think except for a few gift cards.
Home made gifts are all finished and tucked away. Snacks are all bought for the gift basket for our friends.
Anything else is a after thought gift. I think I’m pretty much done.

MM, you have achieved great things, well done. You can now sit and relax and enjoy other things in the lead up to Christmas.

Mum and I are going to be doing some online shopping together this week. She will be at her home on her computer and I will be on mine and we will go through the new release Christmas catalogue together. Should be interesting and I hope we score some great items.

Well I have been wanting some vera bradley in a certain pattern and missed the last outlet sale they had for it. Well the sale popped back up and DH asked me which ones I wanted. I told him and he ordered them for me for Christmas last night. He even ordered a wallet for our DD that she liked.

I have found some surprising things at Tractor Supply. It's one of the places I've started checking when I'm looking for gifts.

I went to Wegman's up in Syracuse and got a few things for the Hanukkah goody bags.
