I have officially started my Christmas shopping!

I can't believe I am actually saying this. I officially started my Christmas shopping today. Normally I start in November, especially because the last two years Izzy didn't really know what was going on. But this year, I think she is really going to get into things more. Everyone knows that I LOVE to get good deals, and I rarely will buy anything without a coupon or sale price. So, today when I was doing the grocery shopping at Meijer's I stumbled upon the clearance toy aisle. I refrained from going too crazy, since all the dolls and games were so cheap! The one item I did get was the junior Candy Land game for 3 years and up. Izzy will love it! I got it for $10 and normally it sells for about $20! I think this week I may go back and pick up the Polly Pocket set since that was on clearance for around $7. There were lots of good deals on baby toys, dolls, cars, and electronic reading toys. I would definitely say it's worth checking out if you live by a Meijer's, they had great gifts for kids of all ages!


  1. The Polly Pocket with the magnets for clothing? If so... Don't. The magnets can fall out (they are just glued in) and if one or more gets swallowed, either by accident or curriosity, it can do horrible things to somebody's insides.

  2. Yes, that is the one! Thanks for the heads up, we will definitely avoid that toy!
