    Good deals on the gift cards. I will go to the local hardware this coming week and get a whole heap of GC for DH and 1 for DDBF. I know that the boys will always use them. Still saving points to redeem a supermarket GC for DH father. I nearly have $40 in points.

    Thanks Pamela. I will have to add up what I need and see what I can do. Yesterday at Kohl’s I had forgotten something when we got to the checkout and DH wanted to purchase what we had and the go back to get forgotten items. I told him do way, it was double points and Kohl’s Cash I need the total as high or I would loose out on my Kohl’s cash. lol

    Picked up a small light up top for the Advent calendar...that is all recently. Will be reviewing my shopping list and trying to start adding some items soon. Have things for DS I will be going back to Rural King for soon - some I'll wait for sale on but a couple of things I think I'm just going to go ahead and get now to be safe.

    Picked up a couple items today. One for DH and the other will go in Oldest DD gift basket. Have won a gift card at the yarn store for a gourmet store just around the corner back in June that I will use as well for getting something for the gift basket end of October or beginning of November when I’m up that way next time.

    Picked up a few more stocking stuffers. I priced some things in the store. They didn't carry enough so I decided to order all of them online and then wrap them at the same time.

    Oh, I have a question. Have any of you used the little lights that you clamp onto a book to read at night? I was thinking about getting a few. If so, do you think it is worth it?

    Mary, I had one of those little booklights a few years ago and I loved it. Not sure what happened to it.

    Our big supermarket had some bacon fllavoured bbq sauce in their catalogue today so got a bottle for DH and DB. $2 a bottle so will be good in their stockings.
    DD BF likes these energy gel satchets for when he rides his bike, found some that he like reduced but with a fabulous use by date so they will go in his stocking. He also mentioned a brand of cereal that he really likes so I might try and get him a box of that for under the tree.

    My daughter got one when she as 7 and it was her favourite present. We're getting one for DD6 this year. They're great for reading in bed, in the car, outside when the light's getting dim. I've borrowed DD8's before, and I really like it. You can clamp them on to other things like a headboard or couch when you want light for doing other things as well.

    Went back to Rural King and got a walking, vapor breathing dragon toy that DS was infatuated with :)

    And a pair of Wild West handcuffs for his stocking.

    Also got a Nerf gun on clearance, pretty good sized one for only $8 - will plan on that for Toys for Tots

    Everyone is doing great!!!

    I picked up two Vtech smart watches for the granddaughters at Costco. They say 4 yrs plus and when reading the reviews I seen parents with kids 4 to 10 that said they loved them. I was going to just get my 6 year old granddaughter one, but knew my 4 year old GD would be all over that and probably bugging her, so I decided to get 2 of them. I also picked up home sew monster dolls for them at a craft fair last weekend that were the cutest. Think Ugly Dolls, but homemade and fancier. They are all crazy looking and the materials are all different and the minute I seen them I HAD TO BUY THEM. They are fairly large and for 4 she only charges me $35. The lady in front of me also bought 4. I told the vendor she had a hit on her hand and they were ADORABLE!! Here's one of them.
