Kohl's throws for sure.....for me and for my Senior Tree gifts as an extra beyond what their card has requested.  Who doesn't love a good soft and oversized throw?

       *I do not need another throw, I do not need another throw*

 

I always load up on bras from Kohl's as well.  They always have them for under $20 each.  I usually end up buying new house slippers too as something to throw in to get the free shipping.  I'm hard on mine so I always have a backup pair in the closet.  

 

McAfee for the new year and for the last several years I've bought the most recent Big Bang Theory DVD which is usually around $10.  I also get the cheap washcloths if Walmart has any left since I use those to wash my makeup off every night rather than my good washcloths.  I doubt I get those this year since I have an abundance of them that are still in good condition.

I buy at least 4-6 towels and some bath cloths every year.  Usually just the cheap ones from Walmart.  I also always buy DVDs.

I used to get sheets at target every other year but since they changed brands I’m not as big a fan of them so I am going to have to change that up this year. I almost always need to get a new Kohl’s throw for our dog as he is rough on them.

Somehow, every year I buy a new wet/dry vac. It is cheaper to replace on Black Friday that to buy a new cartridge, lol.

PJs for the grands, memory foam rugs at Walmart, the newest COD game for ds, and Xbox live renewal for same.  There are probably other things I buy every year, but they aren't coming to mind right now.

Rubbermaid containers from Walmart to replace the ones I got the year prior that are usually stained and disgusting by now. I always end up buying the nice, fluffy $2 pine garland from Michael's because I always end up needing more every year somehow...and I usually buy the $1 boxes of Christmas lights from Dollar general (although last year I think they upped the price to $1.25)...it's so much easier to just toss out strands of lights that have multiple lights out or have a short in them (I know, call me wasteful all you want...but it saves me time and my sanity)  :gdthums:

If I still messed with strands of lights I would so do the same thing.  :)

I can honestly say I've never gotten a throw from Kohl's. I'll have to check them out, even though (to quote HanShotFirst), "I do not need anymore throws!"

 

One thing I always buy every year are the batteries from Menards. Not sure we need them this year since we're still working on the ones from last year (and maybe the year before). I always buy hubby the summer sausage from Menards as well. They're a good price so I buy several and freeze them. We pull them out throughout the year.

PC monitors. As a tech guy I always end up being short one right before Black Friday and have to look for a new one.

Kohl's throws. I've already bought 2 plush, 3 fleece, and 3 jersey ones this month. And 2 other plush earlier in the year. Today I noticed theyy finally put up new designs, and I saw a few I liked, so maybe I can resist (not likely).
Towels from Kohl's. 2 kids don't need them this year, but I'll probably still get them for my daughter.
Gel memory foam mattress pads from Kohl's. Need to see if anyone needs one this year.
Advent calendar necklace and bracelet set.
Xbox live, PlayStation subscription, Google Play cards, and gaming money.
Batteries and poinsettias from Home Depot. We line up before 6am for them. Mama insists.
Cat litter, pet toys, and dog treats from PetSmart. Mama buys new cat collars every year.
I used to stock up on laundry detergent and other household items, but those sales have kinda changed in the last few years.

Anti Virus software for some years, but I now have four more years worth, so not this year.

 

A number of years I have bought Wrangler jeans at Walmart, but don't think I will need them this year.

 

I visit the pharmacies every year and get many of the "free or cheap after points" deals, some of which are repeats year to year.

Just looking at the catalog that came in and realized that I "do" order some items from Swiss Colony every year so I can have their freebies on my goodies table that I lay out for everyone each year on Christmas Eve. (Guilty pleasure) ;)

I find the household product sales are usually at CVS or Walgreens for BF

Keurig Office Pro.  If I cannot use one, I give it away.  I have paid from $17 to $35 after discounts and promotions for these.
