When I decide to actually begin my Christmas shopping for the year is not set or planned. It usually happens when I happen across an item I want at really good price. This year that happened a couple of weeks ago when my youngest found a 1.5 quart slow cooker on sale at Fred Meyer for $9.99. You just have to love Super Bowl sales. J
Last year I had mentioned to her I thought I might get one for her sister. We looked at a few but didn't find exactly what I wanted. I got her something else she wanted instead.
As my girls and I have been talking about preparing for college we have also discussed starting a hope chest, of sorts, to begin collecting things the girls will need when they eventually strike out on their own. Items for their "hope chest" will be great gifts.

This Christmas I would like to find a chest or trunk for each one of them that they can use to hold these treasures. I had a pair of cardboard boxes I kept in the closet of my childhood bedroom and that worked perfectly fine for me. I would just love to get my girls something a little better.
At Shopko last week I found a small skillet with a lid for my youngest so she can now start her own set of cookware. It was on sale for $6.99. My oldest already has a set and she loves them. Little sister and I had a lot of fun finding them and giving them to her for birthdays and Christmases. Now I think it is her turn.
I got a jumpstart on stocking stuffers too while I as there. I found some really nice socks on clearance. Two pair sets for $4.19. I grabbed one for each of them. Perfect!
I'm off to a pretty good start, I think. How about you? Have you done any Christmas shopping yet? I'd love to hear about it.
