Happy "Burt" Day - Burt's Bees that is!

Shopping Thursday

Have you started your Christmas Shopping yet? I have. Well, really I shop all year long and I know that isn’t a possibility for everyone, but it works great for me. I have a couple of plastic bins in a closet that I keep things in that I find. It has more than once saved me when I needed that last minute birthday or hostess gift. And I learned long ago to keep everything together so that when December rolls around I haven’t “lost” gifts because I’ve hid them so well.

I troll several discussion boards for deals – and not every day, just when I have some time. I’m pretty patient and don’t mind sifting through things to get at the bargains. BUT, I’ve figured out that I have to be in the right mind set and not be rushed.

One of my favorites is the Budget Board on the DIS site. It claims to be “The Internet's Largest Unofficial On-Line Guide to Walt Disney World” and it has been invaluable for saving us money on our many jaunts to the world. And as you would think, the Budget Board predominately centers around saving you money on your trip. However, there are many savvy posters there who view the “penny saved is a penny earned” to go into the Disney Vacation money jar and they apply it to their household yearly budget. You are never really sure what offers people will post. After looking through several pages, I found this.
