Lists and advice on shopping!

Love this list!
It gives advice of 6 things to buy after Christmas!
I think I'll be on the look out for good things after we celebrate Christmas!

Read on!

1. Baking Ingredients
During the holidays, supermarkets and discount stores load up on baking supplies to meet shoppers’ demands. Afterward - when you just can’t face another gingerbread man - these stores slash their prices out of necessity. “It’s a great time to stock up on chocolates, spices, flour, sugar, the basics,” says Freeman. The chocolate may be colored green and red, but it tastes the same!
2. Electronics
The Annual International Consumer Electronics Show runs the first week of January. That’s when companies roll out all their new models of computers, cameras, cell phones, printers … you name it. While early adapters salivate over the newest and latest tech gadgets, January is a great time for everyone else to buy the most recent models - which will, no doubt, be discounted heavily to make room for the new. ”If you don’t take advantage of the Christmas deals, don’t worry. After Christmas, everything’ll be on sale!” says Freeman. Last year Walmart offered shoppers a $50 gift card when they bought Microsoft Xbox 360 through January 1.
3. Winter Clothes & Accessories
There will be no shortage of discounts at department stores and clothing retailers - especially on hats, scarves, boots, winter coats and wool socks. Invest wisely by opting for non-trendy staples that will last you another winter or three.
4. Refurbished Goods
Expect stores’ “refurbished” bins - where returned appliances and gadgets get a 10 to 20% discount - to be well-stocked after the holidays, as people return unwanted gifts. One note of caution: Only buy refurbished items from reputable dealers that offer a manufacturer’s warranty. Sony, Dell, Amazon, Apple and Kitchen Aid are all in the refurbishing business.
5. Holiday Cards, Wrapping Paper, Ornaments
This one’s obvious. Expect discounts of 50 to 90%. A tip on the wrapping paper - go for a solid color, instead of a sheet with Christmas trees or dreidels. Gold, green, blue or red wrapping paper, while seasonal, can also be used throughout the year.
6. Calendars
Can you wait a few extra days to get organized? It’s almost a given that Borders and Barnes & Noble will have their 12-month calendars on sale the first weeks of January. I’ve spotted their buy-one-get-one-free or “All Calendars $1″ deals throughout the years, appearing right around New Year’s Day.

Love it!

Will you wait until after Christmas to buy all these things to save some $$$ or can you not wait to buy the stuff now???

Mom time

My mom is probably here right now! My grandfather decided to go pick her up and my mom agreed. Yeah.
Don't get me started.
Anywho, I'm excited/scared/excited again to see her already!
We'll see what time I'll get to see her tonight.
I hope to be updating with pics soon!

Hope to see you later!

Wish lists!

So the spirit of Christmas has hit Kevin and I super duper early this year!
Don't know what it is this year but I wanna get Christmas rolling already!
My mom is coming tomorrow and I think that is kind of like a Christmas present in of itself! I haven't seen her in over 10 year now! Crazy how time flies by when your not paying attention. And even if you are it still flies by.
But anywho. Christmas!
It is my dad (and mom's) 50th birthday this year so I wanna do it up big for both of them.
I have planned on a couple of days in NYC for my mom and so we can have a girls day(s) up there just going around town, eating good food and just catching up! Plus the PWP event at Touch by Lisa Paige and 92.3 NOW FM will be a plus that weekend.
Then for my dad I won't go into too many details (just in the off chance that he reads this blog!) but it will have some relaxation going on and even a change of scenery. Soooo excited!!!
These are two birthdays that are going to be awesome! Yay!
Anywho back to Kevin and I:
we have already started Christmas lists. He apparently has more on his list than me right now. I am going to be adding on a page up top with our Christmas lists just in case other people want to buy us our wishes! :D
Well gotta go. Getting ready for movie time with my lovely Kevin (who is sick again! grr!).
We are going to see Due Date. It better live up to the hype! I'll let you all know how it is! :D

Ha!!! Love it!
Can't wait to laugh my butt off!
