The day your taxes/registration for your car are lower than the inspection and emissions cost it took to get registered.... you must have a really old car.
I always go to Target for Christmas shopping, now mainly cuz I can put it all on credit card and pay it off later... So I went there first for Dustins Christmas stuff. I got two things of diapers for the girls, sizes 2 and 3 so they can grow into them. Apparently buying two things of diapers gives you discount/gift card of $15. Woot woot. I got the girls sleepers 0-6 and 6-9 so they can grow into some and have some now...
I looked at snow suits for the boys, $20 each, but I think they need shoes/boots more this winter. I went to the toys and found some cheap Lego things. There are way too many Lego games out there right now. And I know the pieces will be lost in 2.5 seconds after opening them and their attention span doesn't last long enough to actually put it together so I got the smaller cheaper ones. While I was in the toys I found some type of Laser Pegs its called I guess. Its like legos you put it together and then it lights up with LED lights inside them or something. Whenever we see toys that light up we think of Dad and his endless enjoyment of LED lights. So I bought him that toy.
I can't remember if I have finally got my Grinch movie I love so much, so I bought that for me. I'm sure I've asked for it for like 3 Christmas' now, so I'll just get it myself.
So I got the girls Christmas. I plan on getting the boys boots and shoes. That will cost a lot. And I'll either go in on a couch or recliner with Mom for the parents or I'll get them a TV. And then Dustins Christmas will be done for.
I spent $150 at Target on the girls with the diapers and stuff. But I got a $15 gift card. And since Natalie now lives near a Target maybe I can give it to her for Christmas. I can't give gift cards or things that might need to be returned from Target cuz none of my family lives near a Target. Now I can get Sara and Mitchell some small toys...or things they need like coats.... Find something for Gma. I already got Evans. I need to think of stuff for Mom for sure... And if I want to get more complicated I can think about all the Bdays too in Nov-Dec! Oh boy... And then I'll be done!
It's kinda bugging me I haven't started and/or finished Christmas shopping already. Its halfway through Nov and I usually have this all planned out and mostly done by now! AND I FORGOT to get my cars registration and inspection done this month until last week I finally remembered when I saw a Jiffy Lube ad. I usually get that done in Oct so I can pay for Christmas in Nov! Oh bother, between the $500 fridge and the $111 in my car and now Christmas for the largest family we got...and my tooth is threatening to fall out and then I'll need an implant!
