Stocking Stuffer Ideas (Using Money Saving Coupons!) for the Whole Family

stockingstuffers

We are headed into the homestretch and you have exactly 5 more days to shop before Christmas.  I don’t know about you, but stocking stuffers are always the last thing on my list that I shop for.  I usually reserve and entire shopping trip to just stocking stuffers to be sure I get the right items for each person and stay within a reasonable budget.  Here are a few of my favorite stocking stuffer ideas:

  • Health & beauty items like razors, make up, fancy soaps, body washes or bubble bath. Cute kids band-aids are also a hit.
  • Small toys like action figures,  silly putty, slinky, rubik cube, mini puzzles, card games
  • Books, CDs or movies
  • Arts & crafts supplies: crayons, paints, markers
  • The practical: socks & underwear, gloves, hats or scarves
  • Snacks & candy-no explanation needed!
  • Gift cards to the coffee or sandwich shops, lottery/scratch off tickets

Here are also a few coupons to help you save money while filling those stockings:

 

Where is the Christmas spirit?

grinch

I spent the morning today finishing up my Christmas shopping list. You know, just the odds and ends like stocking stuffers, so it was a low-stress trip to Target.  While the store was a bit more crowded than what I expected for a weekday morning, I was in a great mood knowing that I was done shopping and wouldn’t have to go out and fight the crowds this weekend.  My cashier was telling me how she is having such a hard time getting into the Christmas spirit this year and just didn’t know why.  My snarky reply was I knew why, it was because she is working in retail during the holidays, that will suck the Christmas spirit out of anyone.  You know what I am talking about if you have ever worked in retail.  The lines of impatient and often rude people kind of suck the joy right out of you.

Our conversation reminded me of my own need to get into the Christmas spirit and how I let all the other crap get in the way.  Like obsessing over getting THE BEST DEAL POSSIBLE BY ANY MEANS POSSIBLE.  That meant me staying up until midnight one night to be sure to get in on  an online Black Friday deal.  Little did I know that the deal didn’t start until midnight, pacific time, not eastern time so of course I was 3 hours too early.  Silly me thought I could just stay up for another 3 hours and get the deal and be good with it.  Not surprisingly the lack of sleep from that night ruined my day.  I was crabby, tired and just plain miserable.  Over what? Saving a few bucks? In hindsight, it wasn’t worth it and I won’t be doing that again.  I’ve also been known to obsess over watching the Amazon.com Lightning Deals.  Wow, what a time suck that is.  Yeah, I found a few things at good prices, but if you think about the hours I’ve probably wasted, again—not worth it.  Christmas spirit had turned into meaning finding the best deal and not enjoying the season. Foolish huh?  Maybe I need to watch the Grinch Who Stole Christmas to remind me:

“What if Christmas, he thought, doesn’t come from a store. What if Christmas…perhaps…means a little bit more!”

Yes, I’m still here…maybe

identitycrisis

Right now I am struggling with an identity crisis.  Am I a coupon blogger or just a regular “mom blogger”?  I thought maybe I could live somewhere in between the two, but I think its weird. Or is it? I need some feedback really.  I still coupon and always looking for the best deal, but my priorities have changed a bit, so I am not putting so much effort into the couponing side of the blog.  Its been weeks or maybe a month (or has it been longer?!) that I’ve shopped at Shaw’s.  Either the deals are just mediocre or I’m just becoming complacent…We have also changed how and what we eat, so many of the things I buy don’t have that many coupons or are not often on sale (organic foods and produce).  My son was recently given the label of having A.D.H.D., so thus the change in food buying.  Trying to go about the diagnosis the natural way first.   Its always been something I’ve wanted to do, you know, be more natural and healthy, but I never made it a financial priority until now.  Funny how I am more able to stomach paying $4.69 for a half gallon of milk instead of $2.49 for a whole gallon…

I’ve also taken on a new online venture of my own that has been taking up more of my spare time, so blogging has kind of gotten pushed back.  While my traffic hasn’t dipped, I just feel like why write when nobody reads it anyways? You know?!  Plus I feel like I don’t have anything interesting to say since my life is very boring and unexciting (I kind of like it that way).  Who wants to hear me talk about my day of cleaning the bathrooms or running errands?  But then I also realize some of my favorite blogs that I read they are just about the everyday and mundane, so maybe I need to start sharing more.

So hello readers, are you out there?
