    I'm about to say "Scrooge it" and get everyone dang gift cards.
    Send everyone a gift that helps out someone else. Their cards can state you've made a donation in their name to buy a farm animal, care package, wish,etc for someone in need. That way, you won't have to fret if they like or use their cards and you know your money went to causes to help other people. Maybe buy some good chocolate or candy to hand out with the cards to sweeten the gift giving this year. And you can do it all this month so you can enjoy some of the other activities going on.

    Got my magazine in the mail yesterday-super! Just have to get some of the instructions translated.

    I really looked through the Bed Bath and Beyond insert and noticed the mention of a TFal 10 in 1 multicooker available online.
    See Youtube video of product here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7tF1AKitDuM
    Not quite the Moulinex/TFal Cuisine Companion but going in that direction (minus the chopping/cutting accessories)...Santa, you know I want one.

    BBB has a holiday contest with daily instant win. Might have a go there. Will post contest.

    I have asked the inlaws 3 times already this month for their list and nada...dh said leave it alone....so I shall.

    Planning on doing 2 redemptions this Saturday if they have the items I want for gifts if not I guess I will wait until they restock after redemption.

    My son wants a specific gaming headset they are $49.99 at the source found the same 1 on amazon.ca for $11.99 + 6.99 shipping. I'm now waiting for swagbucks to process my swagbuck rewards for amazon.ca egift....yippee.

    Looks like everyone is on their way to shopping - awesome job

    bought some more stocking stuffers for DD (purple plush bunny that I almost want to steal it's so soft, and a tiny pony you can add jewels to) from Chapters using gift cards obtained through points, yay freebies. Also received my Shutterfly christmas photo cards and holiday themed address labels that I got for free using the pampers program, so I need to start addressing those when I have free time...

    Canadian Tire carries the rice multicooker in-stock at $20 more but there'd be no waiting on shipping.

    Snapfish e-mailed me that my Monopoly photo mug is shipping this week.

    Getting ready to tackle more things off my list this weekend (Watching for Black Friday deals)
    Planning on doing a SDM redemption too for a few things. Would like to save one for the new year but better to use their money (points) then mine.

    @scouponer very kind of you to help a family in need. We did the same thing as well, we got the same family for several years but sadly our circumstances have changed so we are not adopting a family this year.....kudos to those that can it makes a huge difference for the family.

    Well ds2 is all done from us & santa

    eldest still need a small gift, if his gifts ever arrive from the us, they made it to montreal TWICE and THEN put back into US, I don't know what's going on it's been in transit since Nov. 10th...I'm stocking the USPS hoping that it shows up in Ottawa and not the US again...

    I will pick up a small gc for my dad using pc points and then he's all done.

    My mom is hard to shop for I asked about the Poison perfume I purchased in February and she said she's getting low so I will pick up on Saturday while doing a redemption and will pick up a small gc using pc points.

    I ordered a token gift for dh as I will be hopefully getting his camera at SDM this Saturday and then he's done.

    The inlaws still have not given their list I've now asked 4 times and made it clear that we are shopping this Saturday. If no list then it's not my problem it will become dh's (haha).

    So feeling pretty good as I now only have to keep my eyes open for gifts for my kids from my parents

Bough dh the amope...gave up waiting for sdm offer for it so bought at loblaws for $39.99 -$5 coupon, no tax and redeemed points. Expecting to get the sdm offer tomorrow! Lol. Went to Sears to return the Nygard pants and top that I bought mom last week for full price. Thought on sale 30%off if you buy 3. So pick out a bunch of stuff go to cash...none of it us on sale.selected items! So pissed off. So stomped out and went across town to the Nygard store everything was 25% off. So got 2 pants, 3 tops for $222. 05 compared to $145 for 1 pant and 1 top. So super happy. Will return to sears for refund.

    yesterday bought frozen doll for girl in family at canadian tire for $9.99. Also bought dh a maximum work bench thingy for $129. It is pretty cool. I think he will be surprised. Reb $249. So he is done. Bought niece a doh Vinci jewelry tree using hasbro coupon so $4.

    bought mom of Christmas family a fleece at old navy for $13. (Miss the $6 fleece sale they used to have) and for boy bought 3 tops including 1 Star Wars. At winners bought nice mitts for family $5.99 and $6.99.

    getting there. Still need a few things for mom, a few toys for girl, toy for nephew, something for 20 year old nephew, and a few other misc things then I am done...will organize this afternoon and confirm where I am at then will spend the rest of the day evening relaxing for big US shopping bus trip tomorrow leaving before7am so shower layout clothes, money etc tonight and early to bed. Excited to hit target..just cause I miss it so much!!!

    Bed Bath and Beyond flyer (mailed one) showed a Frozen Infinity scarf for girls-about $20 and an Olaf humidifier as well. Plus an Olaf beanie and gloves-should anyone want different Frozen themed items for gifts.

    Well survived the US shopping trip! Getting closer. Got cute outfit for niece at Gymboree, pants top, leggings. Bought 20 year old nephew 2 shirts at Eddie Bauer so he is done, bought dh a baseball hat at target, Lego for 5 year old nephew so he is done. Got mom her eye drops, some chocolate, boot tray and a few miscellaneous items, cheap stockings for family. Was fun but exhausting trip! Got everything I have in boxes and organized so I could see where I am at. Still have to get more for my mom from my dad. Need some colouring books and a craft for family...And start wrapping and baking. Tree is done. Dh put it up on sat, added lights on Sunday, and I decorated it. Now the major house cleaning! Ugggh that is the part I hate!

    Set up at the swap met Sunday to sell off a bunch of extra Christmas decorations I have from Target as well as some new in box toys. Only made about $50 which i spent there. LOL But I got these beautiful realistic plush reindeer 2 for $25. They stand at about my mid thigh and pretty eye lashes and softest fur. This week I am staying off bidding wars and doing massive clean and organizer on my house so that I can decorate.
    Had our Xmas office party on Saturday. Was on a yaught and had a fake casino. We will find out the winners of various prizes today. Crossing my fingers.

    I am done shopping, unless I see something else for dad or DH (he may need a few more stuffers).

    I just finished my event to do lists complete with shopping list and prep list for each. Looking at it is a little overwhelming, but I will do one event at a time so I enjoy the season and not stress. My brain feels less concerned about Dec now that I have done this and I won't have to keep thinking about what I need to do.

    I have 5 get togethers in the next 13 days and three are being hosted in my home.

    Wow Granger! That is a lot to take on, but being organized like you have with your lists is a great way to tackle it.
