I also had a gift card for $20.00 to Amazon that I won on a blog giveaway, in addition to one for $10.00. So $60.00 in total for free. Here is what I purchased for my kids:
- Hook the movie. My kids saw this last weekend and have been begging to watch it ever since. This morning Jack informed me that he was going to ask Santa for it because he really liked it.
- Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles DVDs with all 4 movies. Jack really likes the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and I know that he will love it, because he also informed us in the car this morning that he was going to ask for that. (I tell my kids they get to ask Santa for two items.)
- Taylor Swift's Fearless CD for Bug. She really loves Taylor Swift's music and I know she will love this. In addition, I purchased the other two CD's by Taylor Swift, Her Self Titled Album and Speak Now.
- Cheaper By the Dozen 2 was purchased. Both kids love this movie. And I will just grab the first one from Walmart for like $5.00, unless I win something online.
Shipping & Handling: $7.93
Super Saver Discount: -$7.93

Total for this Order (out of pocket): $1.38
I also won a $50 gift card for Toys R Us on a blog a little while back. I decided to purchase my son a toy laptop in hopes that he will LEAVE MINE ALONE! ;) I know he will also really like it. So this is what I found. If you look it is only about $30.00. I thought long and hard and calculated something else I could get until I checked out and realized they wanted almost $13 just for shipping that one item, as the item is discontinued and they won't allow shipping to the store for free shipping. I decided I wanted to get it that bad, so I continued and purchased it. I have about $7.00 left for Toys R Us, but I am not sure what I can get for that.
My previous tally was $8.19 total for Christmas spent.
So as of right now, a grand total of $9.57 out of pocket!!!
I kind of think I am about done with Christmas shopping for my kids, unless they change their minds on what they want for Christmas.
Knowing my luck, I could totally see them changing their minds. hahaha Oh the joy of kids!
I am pretty dang proud of myself though. It is only July and I am pretty much done with their shopping.
