Hi there. I’m not dead! I’ve just been enjoying some time off and was reluctant to come back because it turns out that I could happily fill my days with books, movies, playing with my dogs, and nagging my family. Who knew??
I hope everyone’s had a great week and had a lovely holiday, if you celebrated. After months of careful shopping and selection, 50% of my children were thrilled with their gifts. The other 50% promptly purchased a cell phone upgrade with their own money, so, whatever, that’s a win, too, right? Let’s pretend it was.
My best finds this holiday season?
1) Quite a few Amazon Lightning Deals, particularly on clothing and shoes when I could combine a deal with an existing coupon, both because the prices were great and because of Amazon’s free returns. One pair of shoes I bought my husband was too small, and no problem—I sent ’em back the day after Christmas and the replacements are already on the way.
2) The computer of my son’s dreams, snagged as a certified refurb for way less than retail.
3) These Samsonite bags, which are soon to be filled and headed off to college, and will now be my go-to gift for graduates because they’re really nice and super affordable.
How was your holiday? What did you either get or give that made you happy?
