Christmas Deals

I just started typing one of the most boring posts of all time. And as I kept going, I realized it sounded stupid and lame and BLAH, WHO CARES ABOUT THE DETAILS.

So here is the short version:

I did a lot of Christmas shopping today.

Here are some good deals I found.

I got this nativity set for 25 bucks at Toys R Us. Which is the cheapest I have EVER seen it.

I also got a good deal at Toys R Us on this basketball hoop, which Santa will be bringing for Jack. (Seriously, I got it for cheaper than it is on AMAZON.) Curiously, it was cheaper at the smaller store I went to first, than at the GIANT Babies R Us/Toys R Us mega store I visited later in the day.

The best deal of the day was the Little People Racin' Ramps Garage. It was 40 bucks at Toys R Us and I had never seen it for less than 30 anywhere before. (It's currently 44.98 on Amazon.) I scored it at Target for 24 dollars! OH. YEAH. I was so excited I told the check out lady about it. She...didn't really care.

I also got 9 piece bath toy set for 5 bucks at Big Lots. Which doesn't sound like much, but considering bath toys are ridiculously expensive and it's IMPOSSIBLE to find a simple, floating BOAT for a BATHTUB for less than TWENTY DOLLARS, I was pretty excited. And Big Lots was my THIRD stop after failed attempts at the 99 cent store AND The Dollar Tree. I was SEEING boats everywhere by the time I got to Big Lots. Like, how hard is it to make a cheap bath toy for a stocking stuffer, people?

(And for those of you who might have a Wonder Pets fan in your family, Big Lots had a Fly Boat with Tuck for 10 bucks. I realize that sentence made NO sense to you if you've never watched The Wonder Pets before. And for that, my friend, you should be thankful. For those pets will HAUNT YOUR DREAMS.)

And I found a cute Christmas-y sweater for Santa pictures for a whopping 4.50 at Once Upon a Child.

As I told Alex in a breathless e-mail, I am a Christmas Shopping Ninja.

See? Boring! But exciting for me because I love a good deal. And I really wanted to share. Thank you.

You should watch this because it's pretty cool:

Yes, I didn't understand half of what you typed. But way to go Christmas Shopping Ninja!

I'm so impressed! I've been trying to get good deals, but I've been doing most of my shopping online which is WAY easier than getting good deals shopping in stores. Plus, I love seeing what other fun toys there are, so thanks!
