I didn't score too well on actual Christmas Stuff... went to Lowes for their 75% and they didn't have much.. but did get some outdoor 25 extension cords with posts and outlets every 8ft for 4 bucks a piece..... Walmart.... Didn't like any of the Christmas stuff... though they did have a ton of those large Dancing Santas for 1/2 off.. Scored on the bath and beauty sets.... I have 3 girls and we are constantly buying favors for parties, and buying presents for parties we go to... so I stocked up. They had the cutest little cloth purses with beads hanging from them with makeup inside for 1.44...I bought 30 for party favors since birthdays are right around the corner... They also had these purses that really had 2 large plastic purses attached to each other, filled with makeup and lip gloss for 3 bucks...bought 8 for the parties we'll have to go to.. They also had cute bath sets for boys, Crayola bug hunt and Dr Bubbles for 3 bucks, bought 4 for gifts. Target... Not much left... Did buy stocking holder, and some Christmas Cards, they had a 40 pack of the nice sparkly ones that hold a picture for 7 bucks, cute large and small bowls, and of course some boxes to put everything in. Really didn't get much that was Christmasy though...
I think I'll try defying gravity .... and you can't pull me down!!!

We went to the Wal-Mart in a nearby small town. I got a 7.5 foot tree (not pre-lit) for $39 and one of those inflatable snow globes for the yard for $54 (regularly $130!) :yelclap: Didn't need wrapping paper (we have enough to wrap Florida!), but we did find some cute gift tags, boxes, and a snowman wreath along with a few other Christmas-y items. Not a bad haul for getting up at 4:30 this morning!

Woke up to a big snow storm this morning so I did not get out early.. Hubby talked me into taking his truck instead of my van.. I guess he thought it would slow me down some heheee but I got EVERYTHING in the cab of the truck. :g_laughin I went to lowe's first.. they did not have much at all but got a couple of light sets. I went to Kmart and they had things Just down to 50% off.. I did not get any thing ... I hope they will bring it down lower as the big stuff like trees were not going. I then went to JCPENNEY's and scored some wonderful indoor decorations there for 70% off.. I had a ball. I got an amazing rather large nativity set for $30.. and a LOT more :banana01: Went to Sears and they had the same thing before Christmas 50% off.. and I had already gotten a few things before. Bath and Body is suppose to have some gift sets 75% off starting tomorrow so I hope I can get out to get some before they are gone. Love, Beth

We got $$ for Christmas and need a new TV. Hubby wanted a 32" Sony. Tweeter had the floor model only for $448.00 with scratches. Sears prices matched, so we got the TV for $440.00. I stopped at LNT and the clearance was not set up yet. There was nobody shopping today. I didn't see any good sales.

I went to Wal mart and got a lot of bath sets and perfumes (I love sunflowers and Brilliant White Diamonds--especially at half off!!) and a 4 qt crock pot for $6 and a hamilton beach food processor thing for $9. It's the one that uses the Glad bowls. I didn't go anywhere else yet. My father in law just left and technically, I was only going to Walmart for milk for breakfast. LOL

I could not believe that no one was out today. Went to Kmart return some pants and walked around but did not buy anything. Next Circuit City for a GameCube memory card, it was online for 24.99 marked down from 29.99 and it rang up 19.99 and I had 10.00 left over on a giftcard. Then the Mall - Old Navy and Disney Store-nothing. Childrens Place returned a shirt and pants that my daughter got she ended up with a shirt, jeans, 6 pairs of socks and tights for only 2.33. Bath and Body for the 5 for $10 hand soaps and returning tommorrow for the 75% sets and soaps.

I make it a point to not go out shopping for Christmas things. I am the type of person where if I can't use the stuff now, I don't want to bring it home and store it to use next year. So I don't go shopping!!

Got lots of stuff from WM, Target and Lowes. Lowe's had all their Christmas stuff 75% off so it was really picked over, but we did find a few ornaments and an animated Winnie the Pooh.

I don't think I got any great deals. I bought some wrapping paper at Target, and some lip gloss sets from WM for my nieces for next year. My big find of the day was when we went to Best Buy. Ds wanted to trade his iPod Nano for a Video iPod, which are sold out in most places. I asked the girl in electronics if anyone had returned any and she said no, but the girl at customer service had told me someone had, so the girl opened the case to check and there was one there. So, ds got to get his iPod (he paid the difference between the Nano and the Video).

My son is getting married on Jan. 7. The colors for the wedding are red and white so I went to Walmart and got red lame table cloths for 3.30, red bows for .44, and a beaded, wired white garland set for 8.00. It saved me tons on wedding decorations.

I got a 7.5 foot pre lit tree fully decorated for $95 from Menards. Even though it was pre-lit it had 7 extra strands of lights on it, 4 beaded garlands a ribbon and 136 ornaments (yes I counted :) ) It is a beautiful tree everything is white and silver. We have a tree in our family room which is full of sentimental ornaments etc. but I wanted a nice one to have in the living room front window. Yaay!

I went to Wal Mart and got the bath sets. My daughter gets invited to so many birthday parties. It's so nice to shop all at once. She just goes into the closet and picks on out. Come in really handy. Also picked up a lighted mirror that had a sign by it that was $4.86. I was charged $14.86 and she said must have been missing the 1 on the sign and she would tell someone. I didn't buy it because I was looking for good deals.

Wow! Which store?? I'm looking for a new prelit tree, and that's an awesome price. (And did they have mulit-color? I'm not one for only white lites)

EDIT: Nevermind, you already answered. (That's what I get for not reading all the posts before I reply)

Tis okay, I'm guilty of that too. The one I got was prelit with multicolored lights. Got it this morning at 6. when I went back at 4, every single tree they had was gone, and they had like 30 when I was there earlier. Was bummed cause I missed the clearance trees at the other store - they started clearancing last week - but ended up getting a better deal anyway.
