Christmas Countdown!

I ran some errands today. The amount of traffic was crazy! The grocery store was packed, Target was super busy and it's only going to get worse! So if you have shopping to do, get out there today, because Fri-Sun, are going to get even worse. My husband hasn't even started his Christmas shopping yet and I told him he better start!! I'm done for the most part, just have to figure out what to cook for Christmas Day dinner.

And more exciting than Christmas (at least for me), is after Christmas shopping!! If you got those $10 off $100+ coupons in the mail for Target, you can use them on Target gift cards. So you'd get a $100 gift card for $90. Buying gift cards ahead of time for clearance shopping is a good way to budget because I know Christmas is the one time of year I spend way too much on clearance.

And if you have a Giant Eagle nearby, they are offering until Dec.28th, double fuel perks when you spend $50+ on gift cards. And buy a 27 oz. box of Honey Nut Cheerios and $5 comes off the total automatically!

Here's some new stuff!
