the attic stash

My poor husband is desperate for Target to drop a couple times in their toy clearance to 75 percent off. There’s something he really wants to stash away for the boys for Christmas and he’s waiting and waiting. You see, some people choose to do their Christmas shopping on Black Friday. My bargain-hunter hubby stalks the clearance all year long, then brings the items home, wraps them, and hides them immediately. The result of this is twofold: first, we are able to give our kids a pretty over-the-top Christmas for very little money. Second, the present stash can get a little out of hand. I think we’re going to need to start scaling back on the pre-buying because as the boys get older, they have more specific requests at the holidays. (It’s no longer just about toys Daddy thinks look cool.) Of course I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t hoping to find some Barbies to hide away for Laura, too 😉

  1. I’m so curious whether my parents still have my Barbie stuff. Meredith would love that. I always wanted the Barbie dream house! :) I love Target. I’ve been doing year-round Christmas shopping so far this year, and it feels great.

  2. That’s awesome, people who wait spend twice as much as they should. I keep trying to get my hubby to start buying early so it doesn’t hit us so hard financially at once especially with three boys who want Nintendo’s and the games that come with them and so on. I am sure Laura will get her fair share of Barbie’s! LOL I had tons.
