Okay, moving on now...
I've been slowly working on gifts for the remaining birthdays and Christmas. I'm searching for things that aren't run-of-the-mill. Trying my hands at crafts. And yes, checking clearance. Its the thought that counts, not how much money was spent. Besides, I still to what I know about people and try to be creative in what I give them.
Is it just me, or was that movie a bust? I mean, all the Wonder Woman merchandise is already on clearance. Or was it a great movie that no one needed the stuff for? Hmm... Haven't seen the movie still (shocking, right?!), so don't ruin it for me. Even if it wasn't that great, I have to satisfy my WW craze. She is my hero after all. And I did like her in the Batman movie.
We also grabbed a couple tee shirts for baby girl. She is outgrowing her onesies and I try to put her in tees and pants when she's crawling around on our stained concrete floors so that she's not scraping her legs. They were $2 a piece. Not a huge discount, but I only needed a couple more.
We checked the clearance aisle. I like that Walmart keeps it mostly to one valley (that is retail talk for an aisle with both sides having the same thing). There, was where I found some pretty good deals. Like the doll food set for a few bucks.
My sisters are into the American Girl dolls and are thrilled to have 18" dolls to play with. My girls are getting their own from their Nana as well. So I had to grab this fun set to add to my sisters' collection.
I found these bath toys for the baby. She is quite the inquisitive one who loves to splash and play in the bath. Unfortunately, we only have Mommy and Daddy's stuff like soap bottles in the tub. So now she has actual toys to play with. Best of all, they were only .50 each. There were some toothbrushes on clearance. I can't do the cheap brands. They always leave bristles in my mouth. But these Colgate ones should work. I grabbed a few to keep on hand. Plus, I have them in case family visits and needs one. They rang up .50 each, which was cheaper than the sticker said.
My final grab was a framed mirror. I had this big bag of pearls my mother sent me.
