with the present buying! My icon says it all - happy dances all around!

I came in right at $100 over my budget - that's only $50/kid; seeings how we bought something I hadn't planned on, I think that's pretty good.

The kids ended up with 3 games apiece - I love GameStop and Entertainmart! Used games at less than half the price! - and a bunch of origami paper (pssssst - if you have origami-loving kids, check out Origami Corner - they have the *best* prices I've found!), along with the other assorted stuffs.

Haven't decided how the DS's will be presented - if I give the games on night 7, they'll know what's coming. If I give the units on night 7, then the games will be a let-down. :pondering: Maybe tell 'em that there's nothing on night 7 and give both on night 8? :fun stuffs!: Oooh......because of "budget cuts", we had to stop at 6! THAT'LL work....:heheheheheheh:

At Entertainmart they had the complete set of Pinky and the Brain DVDs....are you thinking what I'm thinking? Yes - world domination is - wait, no, not that....I'm thinking the kids would enjoy that. I'll see if they still have them next payday. And I'll try to stay away from the $9.99 games........:lol:

Seriously, I'm relieved - I'm done. Oh, I still have to make soaps for the family get-togethers, but I'll be doing that this weekend *anyway*. I've got SG covered - this year the "theme" is Dallas Cowboys (who suck, but he doesn't care....and LTD Commodities has cheap team stuff :shrug:) I told SG I didn't want anything (don't need anything!), so he said he'd take me out to a nice restaurant. I said fine......but yarn/books are good, too. :lol: I have simple tastes....

As you can see, Ms boss didn't come in....so I'm off to do some maintenance to our email accounts. And to celebrate my done-with-present-ness. :grin:

Ha! And here I am just getting my husband to start thinking about it! I've also suggested setting a budget but he's not so good at that. He's lucky he married me and not someone who shops as a hobby!

Yeah, my hubs has a HARD time with budgets. If it were up to him, I'd have only just started, we'd be buying everything new and full-price and....I can't do that.

I don't shop as a hobby....much. :lol: I do bargain-hunt as a hobby, though - I just don't always buy what I find. Prices are good right now....I speak from experience; the longer you wait, the more you'll end up spending. :wink: (I am HORRIBLE with that - if I wait, I end up buying way too much, and spending a ton more. Better to do it early...if I end up accidently buying too much, well...I've already started on next year. :lol:)

As terrible as he is about waiting until the last minute, my husband is actually good at money. He tightened his belt when he was younger and now feels that he makes enough money that he doesn't need to worry about budgeting anymore. I would feel more comfortable with a budget though. I think I really enjoy having that framework because it allows me to be more creative, getting the best bang for my buck. As a problem, it's a good one to have!
