Rise and Shine is my way of sitting down and having a cup of coffee with you! We talk about the new deals of the day, highlights from yesterday, and anything else that might help us save time, money or energy. Published Monday through Friday – as I’m able.
Good morning! How are you doing today? Seven days until Christmas. Only a week. Hope you’re enjoying this season and soaking it in as much as possible.
My sweet 7-year-old lost his front tooth a couple nights ago. Tooth fairy came and brought him two gold dollar coins and he was so thrilled. The elves continue to cause mischief, getting into the kid’s Halloween candy last night – yes, they still have candy left – at two pieces a day for dessert, it’s been hanging around waaaay too long!
Well there was lots of excitement here on the blog last night as Amazon FINALLY started giving us some rock-bottom toy prices (see best Amazon toy deals list here). I’ve been waiting all December for them to get their act together and start offering us some real discounts and I was pleased with the deals I saw yesterday. A little late if you ask me, but I did order some toys for the gift closet for birthdays next year and a few more for charity.
I was brave and went to Costco yesterday. I wanted to get a spiral ham ($2.49/lb) and stock up on food for next week so we hopefully don’t have to do too much shopping. They had a TON of toys and decorations marked down!!! Look for prices ending in $0.97 for the best deals. I hope to share some photos later today – but really, you should make a trip if you still need toy deals or decor. They had 2-packs of Barbies for $4.97 and Madame Alexander 18-inch dolls for $9.97!! Just a couple examples of the great deals I found.
Also they had a LOT of Seahawks shirts, sweatshirts, socks, hats – so definitely worth checking that out, too.
