God's Word for Today

Saturday, January 3, 2009

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas………..next year’s Christmas maybe…..

Ya’ll, I am so doing the happy dance.

It’s is my all time favorite thing, getting a huge bargain

Given the fact that I absolutely hate to shop, I take great pleasure in making the system work for me. 

Last year I got a huge deal on a beautiful pre-light Christmas tree and several (lot and lots of them, I mean seriously I had a brand new (and much bigger) tree, so it needed more oraments to fill it out) boxes of ornaments. 

This year I am overjoyed to show you the newest addition to my Christmas décor

I got two sparkly green and gold Christmas trees (originally priced $49.99 a piece) to go on either side of my fireplace......



A large nativity statuette (originally $79.99) to go with my growing collection of nativity scenes. 


I got a new red wreath (originally priced $69.99) for over my fireplace. I am planning to add a bow and maybe a few springs of greenery (the holly garland was purchased to use on this wreath) to fill this out a bit. 


Two small snow men (original price $24.99 and $29.99) to add to my growing collection of them as well. 

I also purchased a new holly garland (originally priced $19.99)…..

My grand total for the day……$68.98 (total.... if I had payed full price over $330.00, which I would never do under any circumstances ever... ever... ever!!!!!)

Yes, that’s correct boys and girls thanks to the 80% discount at the Hobby Lobby I got all this for less that the full price of the wreath.

 

I Love It, I Love It, I love It!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Don't just love Hobby Lobby Christmas sales. I got paper for next year at 75% off. And ribbon. We went to an old original Ace Hardware here in Springfield that always has a good sale. I got a grocery store for my village for $6.00 and 3 figures for $1 each. I LOVE SALES!

Excellent job! You totally scored some cool things.
I'm not much of a shopper either but always did love the after Christmas bargains.

I love me some Hobby Lobby too. I don't go often because 1) I'll be in there forever and 2) I'll want everything.

I love your green walls and stark white trim. My fave.

Great deals and great items...no junk here. :-) All good stuff. Not to mention there is never any junk at H.B.
