Catching the Christmas Creep w/GingerSpice

August 26th, 2006 at 06:14 am

!!!Merry Christmas Everybody!!!

I feel so like Tiny Tim!!




Am over here laughing while 'listening' to Boomeyers and Baselle blog about the Christmas Creep and the Hype Factory.

What if we went ahead and did our frugal shopping ahead of time like I'm sure lots of us already do, but just don't shop in the 'Christmas' aisle???

Anyone care to mention a date to target our return to the official Christmas type items?

To that end I picked up at the dollar store a week or two ago these (see pic below) gingerbread-girl little cuties for the great-niece and granddaughter.

These were found in the lotions and potions aisle. This is a gingerbread bottle with a hanger that is filled with bubble bath and a washcloth.

For sale were the same thing only instead of hearts on them they had ones with Christmas holly.

I went with the hearts as I felt it would be more universal in use then.

The bottle has a little screw top w/a bail on it so that it can be hung on a ribbon or tree for an ornament. Hard to see in picture.

NiftyNeat!

1) Yes, the price stickers will come off.

2)No, my family doesn't know I blog here. So I'm not letting the cat out of the bag.

They're sweet little girls and will enjoy them! At two dollars a pop + tax I haven't broken my very small and meager Holiday budget allocation either!

The baby corn cans are for a Christmas gift for my nephew-in-law. He takes very good care of my niece and even my sister, his m-i-l.

He does lots of repair, maintenance and upkeep for her. He soooo deserves more than this for a gift, having come from frugal beginnings himself is so very appreciative of even the smallest you do for him and understands we are 'On The Tight' right now.

He loves to eat these and they are sometimes hard to locate at our general grocery stores. Price $1.00 each + tax.



And God Bless Us Every One!!

    I frequently check out the Dollar Stores in my area. I think finding the corn was great! (and the gingerbread too).
