Deals: Choctoberfest, Fifth Grade Passport and More!
posted by: Gretchen
My daughter works at Hallmark. I expect them to have all the Christmas items up already but as I spent some time at the mall yesterday – it really felt like the frenzy of Christmas shopping already! Because I am always trying to stretch my budget out and plan ahead for my purchases, I do start looking now for great things to pick up for Christmas presents. I usually just stock away a few little things now because stocking stuffers can really add up – but a little bit in each grocery cart won’t break the bank. Do you start buying Christmas candy when all the Halloween candy is done?
