Is the Ornament exchange the same as the card exchange (sending an ornament to each person on the list)?

*whew* yep that helps. I started counting all those people signed up, and multiplying that by the $5 minimum. I was gettin a little nervous wondering what I had gotten myself in to.

Thanks for the info!!

I have no idea how apo works so i can not really answer you. I would assume it would not be a problem.


It's just like shipping in the US but you have to fill out a customs form. If somebody doesn't mind then I can play:)

I'm in. This is going to be fun. I burned up the internet last year on this site. I have to find free and drastically reduced price stuff. It's an addiction......lol. I would like to do this every year and start a GottADeal ornament exchange collection.
Where would I be without TV?

Oh yeah...my target has all of their cards and xmas lights out; but the funny part is that they haven't finished putting out their halloween stuff yet. I think they may have their priorities mixed up a little ;)

at my store we have a ton of christmas merchandise - enough to fill 3 aisles. as far as halloween, i can fit it all in a 2'x4' space. Thanksgiving merch is about 1/3 the size of the Christmas merch. I don't know about target and the other stores - but I know that our company is focusing more on the winter holidays and on angels (no idea on that one). on a sidenote, i don't know who i'm shopping for yet - but i've already started. I can't help myself. I'm itching to find out who I'm shopping for though!! Are we allowed to package our things in gift wrap before we put them in the box to ship?

Course the cost of gas to come across town might be more than the shipping! TOo funny though if you did.
