12 Days of Christmas: Day 2-6

So I went to the doctor this morning. I have the flu. It is miserable!! But I have all the time in the world to blog. I figured since I am a week behind in the challenge, I will just do several days and try to catch up!


Day 2: Black Friday/Shopping Tips and Tricks

Well, since Black Friday has come and gone, I guess I will just do some general shopping tips. They aren't very good, but here we go!
  • Make your list in advance and watch for those items to go on sale
  •  Compare prices before you buy
  • Set a budget for each person on your list
  • Clearance racks!!


Day 3: Most meaningful gift/best gift you've received

One that sticks out in my mind is when my Mamaw and Pawpaw gave me the entire FRIENDS collection on DVD. It's my favorite show, and I have watched the seasons in order many times since then. I know that I will always love this gift!


Day 4: Tips/Tricks to a Budget Friendly holiday season

Two words. Dollar Store. You would be surprised at the cute stuff you can find there. My mom swears by it. We got all of our wrapping paper here. 9 rolls for $9, you can't beat that! They had similar stuff at Target for $3-4 a roll!

Doug and I got our Christmas decorations last year during the after-Christmas sales. We racked up. So if you can wait on any purchase, you will get some sweet deals after the 25th!

And one of my favorites- Secret Santa! Instead of doing gifts for all of your friends or coworkers, draw names and have a fun party instead!

Day 5: Favorite Holiday Movie/TV Show Special

My must-watch movies every Christmas include:

"The best way to spread Christmas cheer is singing loud for all to hear!"




I just watched this last night....such a feel good movie!


I love ABC Family's 25 Days of Christmas



And I watch this marathon every year




Day 6: Gift ideas (what do YOU want?)

Well, I made my Christmas List a few weeks ago. Most of the items are pricey so I expect to wait a while before I get some of them! But the Eclipse DVD comes out this weekend so I will definitely treat myself to that :)

Ughh...I hope you feel better! Although, now you have the PERFECT excuse to snuggle up on the couch and watch Eclipse...maybe more than once. ;)

Also, Chandler Bing is my fictional dream man.

Share many of your same Christmas wants! Love Twilight and the iphone is wonderful but like you, it will be so much better when it's on Verizon!

Thanks for joining our ornament exchange. I'll be in touch soon!

I love just about everything in this post. I love all your tips (I totally buy all my wrapping supplies at the dollar store), and LOVE LOVE LOVE your Christmas movie picks! You're missing one of the best classics though - have you ever seen White Christmas? It's THE BEST.
