I'm outta paper.....but I tell ya what. I got the CUTEST little seasonal bench. It was on clearance for 12.99 and it comes with little seasonal signs and bench sitters. I love stuf like that. I got one for me and one for my friend for Christmas.

I got a bunch of other presents too but I don't feel like listing it all out....it was 2 packages that weighed a combined 48 pounds. lol I'm just bummed to be out of paper....They should have it out really soon though. I hope.

Tell her that you will return them all if she says another word about it.

lol good move, Tamara. lol

Loz, have you tried the Dollar Tree???

Here in Illinois I have seen it in both Dollar general and in the Dollar tree. Have not seen it in Wal-mart or anyplace else yet though.

None in my Dollar Tree or Dollar General yet boohoo.....I did buy a few rolls of red paper a week or so ago at the Dollar Tree, it wasn't really Christmas paper but red goes with Christmas right? lol Only bad thing is the rolls in the DT are really short and I went thru those 3 rolls in a flash.

So yeseterday I bought 2small plastic totes-(the ones with handles). I fill them up with hair & body care items. One for each girl. I buy nicer things than they use, but I know they would like to have.

I bought some Christmas cards and I stumbled upon some cute $.99 Christmas tree ornamnets. One style is a small rustic "star" like is all the rage this year. Valarie will be thrilled. (I usually add them to certain peoples gifts, as a topper.)

I am beginning to get excited now.

I only start buying in October, I don't have a spare place to put anything. My house is too small. I don't even have closets in the bedrooms.

I have a double dresser, a nightstand and a 2 and 1/2 ft rod that goes from the wall to the side of the gun cabinet. I don't have much clothes, I could pack all of them in a suitcase lol

I will build a closet some day whenever 'I' get fed up enough and build it myself......and throw out the gun cabinet grin

We don't have a dollar tree but we do have a dollar store, that's where I have been picking up supplies. They have rub on transfers and everything. I was amazed at the selection.

I too was surprised at the selection at our dollar tree as well, that is why I told you of it.

(BTW:I suspect both stores are owned by the same company)

Hmmm, I wonder. Our store is called Dollarama. Each time I go there, I am surprised at what I find. In fact I went in to pick up a paring knife and ended up spending $32. lol

That is what I always figure. You get a lot for your money there so I never feel too bad either. Not that I ever feel too bad when I shop. lol I mean it is my money after all.

lol I had a slight twinge of guilt, but just slight...because that $30 would've paid for the Orbital Sander that Mark wants for Christmas. One of the tools on his list. rolz Oh well, I'll just have to save up some more money so I can go get it! grin

It's really too bad that Walmart doesn't do layaway anymore....that really helped a lot....I'd go early and put hundreds of dollars worth in layaway.

Yeah it would be nice if they still did layaway. Hardly any stores do that anymore.

The other day James bought one of the things that I had planned on getting him for Christmas. Now I have to figure other things out. rspb I told him about it after he bought it. I said...it is close to Christmas so you have to stop buying things for yourself. lol

We were given two hands to hold, two eyes to see, two ears to listen & two legs to walk. But why were we given only one heart?
The other heart was given to another for us to find.

yep, Jess you are right--I always say that a 1/2 gallon of milk costs $20.00--ya know because of all the 'other' stuff one buys while picking up the milk--or bread--or butter--well ya get the idea--- lol

I got the girls some more scrapbooking stickers today.--I am slowly filling up one of those 12 x 12 plastic storage boxes with scrapbooking stuff for them both.
