    I ordered a few replacement pieces on eBay from the Fisher Price Little People nativity pieces. Those will be for Little Stuff & her Baby Brother. Are any of you using the sales to start stocking the gift closet?

    marthamfi, I have enough Christmas cards for several years as well. I bought some of the hard Christmas candy when they marked it way down, though. Hard peppermint drops don’t spoil, & those hard red raspberry drops keep well, too.

    Not buying yet but the best thing I did to prepare was to put things away nicely. I threw things away bubble wrapped and condensed.

    So far, I've gotten some gift cards from CC points. I do have $75 in Swagbucks and will save them as it gets closer to Christmas. CC points are adding up and will get more gift cards as time goes on.

    I had no idea the RetailMeNot sold gift cards at a discount!! DS1 loves a particular shave balm and I got a discounted gift card from RetailMeNot and went to the website to buy some as a stocking stuffer. The website was running a discount on it. I ended up getting 2 tubes of the stuff for $13, regularly $18.

    Got the kids a Marvel Flash t-shirt and a Dr. Strange hat that was on sale and free shipping.

    Did a 3 month survey and got a $25 Amazon card.

    So far, I have $117 in swagbucks and $40 in CC rewards for gift cards. I'll keep collecting points and purchase later.

    I got DS2 a calendar that a Navy Seals man designed and it shows tactics to survive in different situations. He's written several books as well. It's called "Deadly Skills" calendar and it was cheapest on ebay.

    I have $134 in Swagbucks so far.
