Now That Christmas is Over, It’s Time To Shop!

IMG_4741

IMG_4741Now that Christmas has come and gone, it is time to hit the end of year sales and start shopping for next Christmas! I know that may seem a little crazy, but this time of year is when you are able to grab some pretty hot deals! Especially Christmas decorations, winter attire and toys! Stores are now making way for items such as weight loss products, exercise equipment and Valentine’s Day items- so items left over from the holiday shopping season are making their way out the door at rock bottom prices!

Christmas decorations are now marked down 50% to 75% off regular price and this is the time to grab as much as you can! I always stock up on wrapping paper, gift bags, tissue paper and gift tags- savings tons of money. A roll of wrapping paper can cost around $3 a roll, at 75% off you are only playing .75 each roll, meaning you could grab 4 rolls on sale for what you would normally pay for one before the holiday sales! I also grab a few more Christmas tree decorations each year to add to the tree- this is how I have 3 different themes for our tree and rotate each year. Paying full price for 3 sets of tree decorations would have cost us a fortune, but with deep sales, I got them for basically pennies! Outdoor decorations are another great item to snag now to save you big! Some of these outdoor decorations for Christmas can run as much as $200 or more, depending on the item. So getting them now at such a great price and storing til next year, can help keep your Christmas budget under control next year! Plus I always feel like I get extra presents when I get to go out to the garage and open our Christmas totes filled with items I got on sale the Christmas before!
I have 3 children who are always growing out of things, loosing items and getting something on all their nice clothes! Baby clothes and kids clothes for the winter will start going on sale at 50% off or more making way for the spring! I love finding pants, coats and cold weather attire for the next year at rock bottom prices! You do have to get really good at guessing what your kiddos will wear a year from now, but it can pay off big in the end! Last year I was able to get 3 brand new coats from Old Navy for my girls for $40 total! I do this year round to help keep our clothing budget on track!

Now yes you just spent the last 6 -8 weeks hitting the stores looking for those must have toys for your family, so shopping now for more toys may seem like a little overkill. But this is the time to grab some hot deals and save you big time on your Christmas budget for next year! This will also save you some time and your sanity by staying home during these crazy shopping days leading up to Christmas next year. I keep a notebook in my purse and write down every gift I purchase for the next year. This way I know what I already bought and who for! I then hide these gifts in totes in our attic so that the kiddos can’t find them. This is great, because I always have great gifts on hand and at a great price! Once November hits, I am left only having to buy a few gifts for friends and family!

Warning: This Packages Contains POOP!!

poop game

poop gameWhile attending the Chicago Toy Fair a few weeks ago, we had so much fun playing with toys, checking out new games and finding super cool, interesting activities that my girls just loved! I have to tell you when we stopped by the Breaking Games booth that had a game called The POOP Game, I just had to have it! My oldest daughter thought it was funny to tell a person walking down the street from my van window one afternoon that she “pooped today”. The lady laughed, we laughed and now we talk about how she “pooped today” all the time! So to find a game that is called The POOP Game, I knew she needed it!!

The POOP Game is an fairly easy game to play and if you have ever played UNO, then you have the gist! POOP is a card game where the first player to run out of cards wins! Take turns pooping but don’t clog the toilet! Some cards make players perform crazy acts which are a complete hoot. You can play POOP with up to 10 players when combined with the Party Pooper Edition.

This game is great for getting the family or your friends together and could be a great way to get those little ones adding! This game could get you talking more about POOP, which can be a good and bad thing! My girls think it’s funny to say POOP whenever we are in public to see if people look at them! So I know now that we have The POOP Game, it will most liekly be discussed more!

This is a great family friendly game and everyone will love it! It is recommended for ages 5 and older but if you have younger ones that can play UNO then they can play this!

Breaking Games is a unique company. Founded by Shari Spiro of AdMagic, Breaking Games is a promotion and publishing company dedicated to getting their client’s games into the hands of people who love to play them. They are unique in that they promote the game and the designer above the company because they are the stars.

You can grab this game on Breaking Games site or on Amazon for about $10 each! They also carry games such as Gothic Doctor, Word Shuffle, Hogger Logger, Parenthood and Games of Phones! If you are looking for interesting games to play with the family, friends or party, these will sure to be the talk of your next game night!

You can find The POOP Game and other Breaking Game games on the following:

Protect Your Camera With a Camera Coat

camera coats logo

camera coats logoLooking for extra protection for your camera when your shooting those outdoor family pictures, catching winning home run hit or at the zoo checking out all the monkeys, well monkeying around?!?! Look no further than the Camera Coats. This is a great way to protect your camera without using a over-sized, bulky camera bag!

camera coatsCamera Coat is made from 100% cotton inside with padding and laminated cotton on the outside for easy clean up! They are handmade in the USA, with 3 pockets on the back for additional storage for batteries, your phone or SD cards! Easy to use Velcro on the front to keep your camera protected for the elements or accidents! A buckle is attached on the side as well to your Camera Coat for you to attach to your camera strap.

The Camera Coat is easy to use! Simply slide any camera you own with a lens such as a DSLR into the top, close shut with the easy to use but sturdy Velcro strip on the front for protection from rain or in my case, my kiddos! You can check their sizing chart to be on the safe side when ordering to receive the correct size!

Camera Coats are great for moms, dads, professional photographers, grandparents, and so on! These are great as gifts as well! As a mom, I was always looking for places to put my camera without ruining it, now it has it’s own cover and allows me to protect it while looking stylish!


I absolutely love how easy this product fits right into my daily life! I take pictures every day with my larger camera that has a larger lens and sometimes it rains, snows or my kiddos drop drinks and food on me and anything attached to me- meaning my camera sometimes gets to be a mess as well! The Camera Coat is still small enough to fit in other bags such as diaper bags or my large tote, unlike traditional camera bags!

This Camera Coat may not be for you if you carry a point and shoot camera, it may be too big for what you are using. camera coatAlso on the other end, if you want to bring along a lot of extra lens, batteries, etc this bag will not allow you to carry all the additional accessories!

With being handmade and crafted in the USA this product is defiantly worth the $40 or so you will pay for it! I have bought larger, bulky camera bags that after just a few months of use, broke, gained holes and just plain sucked! And they were not only $40!

You can find these at Amazon and on Camera Coats site!
