Yes, I KNOW! It’s barely October, and here I’m talking about Christmas shopping already. But after the fiasco two years ago, last year I started working to be wiser and more accountable with my shopping expenses. Last year I was very specific with a budget, an Excel spreadsheet and tracked every penny. This year, I’ll do the same thing, but I want to start my shopping a little sooner and spread out the spending between a few different months. It sounds smart, right?

So today I purchased the first set of gifts for the kids. And I found some good deals on them, too!! (Princess, if you are reading this… WALK AWAY! There’s a rule, if you find one of your gifts or find out what it is, it goes to charity!) =P I bought four computer games at Amazon for a total of $29.00 by choosing games that were under $10.00 each* and spending enough at once to qualify for the free shipping.

I love free shipping.

Wanna see what I got the kids?

So when do you start your Christmas shopping? How do you find your best deals? Do tell! A budget-concious momma wants to know.

Hey, y’all! I'm Amber, and I wear many hats: Pastor's wife, marriage advocate, eclectic homeschooler, mother of three, and domestically challenged homemaker--lovin’ life and livin’ deep in the heart of Texas.
I love to write and I hope to use that wisely, to encourage others, and for God’s glory. I seek purpose in the mundane. I want my kids to see God’s fingerprints throughout all of creation, learning, and life. As I teach our children, God is teaching me through this homeschool journey, too. I love Jesus, family, coffee, words, and the color teal.
