It has been yet another eventful week in the Frugality Is Free family. Last Saturday we had a big birthday party for our youngest son, and the day after he ended up in the ER with a rapidly spreading toe infection. He needed antibiotics, and then he needed to go back for a check up on Tuesday. We went to the movies Wednesday, and by Wednesday Evening our little guy was beginning to complain that he was feeling sick. Thursday he got a fever, and again today he had a fever and now it looks as if he might be having a stomach flu. Arghhh! Four kids…a stomach bug! I hope not! This funny thing is that he just had his annual well check last week.

Last week was very expensive, but this week was more doable. Not because we didn’t shop, because we shopped a lot. It was because, I had lots of gift cards saved up, so that I could shop without breaking the bank. We took fully advantage of the gift cards and stretched them as far as possible, including shopping the awesome biannual 70 percent off Target toy clearance sale.

I am almost done with all of the Christmas shopping, and this month I am sending off the Christmas box to our relatives afar plus it also contains birthday gifts for those having birthdays from now on and until Christmas. Our oldest son’s birthday is in September, but he is pretty much set from  some great giveaways. I am still hoping to find a couple of good deal on swim gear for the kids come September, but other than that they are pretty much set for Christmas as well. Ahh….do I love clearance shopping!

  1. Wow, you did great. I haven’t even really started thinking about Christmas shopping yet, as it is only August. I suppose I can save myself the stretch on the pocketbook if I get started little by little now…
