Amazon Christmas Shopping

Last year I did a ton of shopping on Amazon. I signed up for a free trial of Prime and was able to get free 2 day shipping without having to add additional items to get my total to $25 for free shipping. It was great to be able to ship the packages right to my inlaws house (where we were for Christmas) rather than having to pack and bring them with us.

Each day they have different great deals and often the prices can change even throughout the day. A good way to find hot items is to look on the "Movers and Shakers" page.

Here's something currently found there--marked down to $29.99 from $99.99

Amazon: Happy Black Friday!

Christmas Books-

I love books--all kinds of books, but Christmas books have a special place in my heart and I have a bit of a weakness for buying them. Each year on Christmas Eve my children each get a new special book--just for them. I thought I'd share with you some of our favorites from the season and the special books my kids have received for their Christmas Eve presents. (This is not a complete list and I'm sure once I pull out all of our Christmas books I'll have more to add!)

For Christmas:

Special books received on Christmas Eve:

not for Christmas Eve, but my daughter received this as a gift from her uncle:

Amazon: Corelle Livingware 16-Piece Dinnerware Set Service for 4

Regular price $51.10 now on sale for $17.99!

I bought 4 sets of these last year when they went on sale and they've held up great! I was tired of my kids always eating off of plastic (with all the talk of BPA) and I wanted an alternative that wouldn't break! These plates have gone in the microwave, dishwasher, been dropped countless times by my dish "helpers" and have had lots of meat cut into tiny pieces on them with no scratching at all!
