My Christmas List | What I’ve Bought: Part 1

I’d like to take a few minutes to tell you what gifts I’ve purchased so far this holiday season, along with my current savings.  Many of these deals are no longer available, but several were posted here!

I normally don’t list items I’ve bought with credits, as I am a blogger and sometimes receive more credits than the average reader.  However,  this year I’m on a mission to see how far I can stretch the estimated credits an average referrer can use.

I’m really trying to cut back on the number of gifts we give this year, as we are in the process of buying a home and eliminating a LOT of clutter.
