Let the frenzy begin! I have already cleaned the house from Thanksgiving and gotten everything cleared out for the holiday decorating. We will wait to start that in December. I did get the greens out around the yard.
I am excited to say that I have almost finished my shopping. The few things that have not been purchased yet will be easy to obtain.
I got my friend Margaret's girls gifts using Amazon gift cards.
Daughters gifts were purchased online Wednesday evening and picked up at 10 p.m. A great bargain (not sharing what we got her in case she reads this) We saved over $200.00 on her gift.
Grandmother (God bless her, 98 and still as feisty as ever) will get a gift each week delivered (flowers, chocolates, her favorite brandy soaked fruit cake and cookies) as well as little trinkets almost daily in the mail.
Mother a new pay as you go ATT android phone. On sale for 39.99 plus came with a 45 dollar minutes card. A necessity as she has been using a phone almost 10 years old and not functioning properly. We also have a few things for her to open on the day.
DH who is a get me fun things on Christmas type of guy is also done. Don't want to risk ruining anything so will have to share with you on the 26th.

I used coupons, discount codes, free shipping deals. Most paid for in cash. The few things I charged will be paid off on December 8th.
I feel so accomplished!
