The Holiday's are near, I know that it is just October and we really do not want to think about Christmas- but I really can't stop because my daughter always gets so excited! She won't stop telling me all of the things she wants! It is adorable. We are starting a few new traditions this year. One of them including new pajamas and a book on Christmas Eve. She will also get to open a present of choice! We always do presents from Santa and then there are presents from us. It is super fun fun fun! Have you started  your shopping yet?

 If you don't start getting things now, you will be "that" last minute shopper like I was last year. It wasn't too pretty. Walmart prices are always great and affordable. You can go to a competitor and spend several dollars more than you would at Walmart. Check out some of my tips!
  •  Make a LIST. Don't just pick and throw in the buggy. If you have to, window shop online and see what you to get want first!
  • One way to get your shopping done and over with would be to shop at night. If you can, have someone sit with your kiddos while they sleep and get it done! 
  • Layaway- Walmart has layaway and if you are on a budget, this is a great way to pace yourself so that you are not spending out of pocket at once. 
  • Set a budget- I know that Christmas only comes once a year, but setting a budget for yourself is a great idea. 
  • Keep an eye on weekly circulars- YES! Keep an eye on them in the paper or store. Why? That toy that is $20 now, may be $10 later! I have been there myself!
  • You don't have to shop at once. Get a little here and a little there!

  7. Making a list is definitely the wise thing to do to ensure you don't overshop!

  8. My daughter is pretty easy. She LOVES Lalaloopsy's and if you ask her what she wants she says, "Lalaloopsy Dolls".
