Fortunately none of my kiddos have asked for any of the "must have" toys. I too am a Jan bargain shopper. I buy and save for later too.....

i was hoping to go out and look for bargains but there is a stomach bug at my house and one after the other has fallen victim to vicious puking for a day. So I have not really gotten to leave here!

I ALWays buy my Christmas decorations on closeout after Christmas. But this year with the inventories down so much, there's not much let to choose from at 75% off. I guess that's good for the retailers...
:~D

I am a no-spending lotsa money Christmas Mama who truly feels and believes the holidays are more about love and being together with your family .. kids love that (not) lol

So my DD gets spoiled by her Father who is my ex boyfriend and he falls into this trap of buying EVERYTHING on her wish list (expensive items) and then she has me who refuses to go broke over a holiday :-)

So I don't usually fall into that trap at all, I can't or else I wouldn't have a place to live, these three kids would make me broke! LOL

I have always tried to get what I wanted...but I have never been willing to overpay for it. I just jump when opportunities present...and I also am willing to wait in line on Black Friday (for things like Guitar Hero!)

2009-12-28T21:22:17.868-06:00

No I don't fall to the hype at all and it's mostly because I didn't grow up with any toy and know that my kids already have too many that they don't even miss one when it's gone.

If there is something on sale, I'll weigh if it's a good deal and get it for them, but I'm totally not in the hype and if/when they get older and get hooked by ads, they'll be saddened to find out that mommy does not care about ads :)

My kids have never been interested in a "must have" toy. We don't watch tv so they don't see regular advertisements.

However, once my daughters were looking on ebay. Every once in a while they enjoy looking at the polly pocket dolls on ebay. They saw this areal polly pocket doll that came with a green, a pink, and a purple fin. My 6 year-old decided that THIS is what she wanted for Christmas. Where do you even find that thing? I could not find it anywhere. Not even on ebay!!!!! After quiet a bit of searching, on seller on ebay had said doll and fins included in one of those huge masses of used dolls and accessories for polly pockets. So, I bought the whole lot. And my little girl got a ton of used polly pocket dolls and stuff for Christmas. Of course, it all looks just about brand new. She was actually thrilled. She couldn't have been happier if I went out and spent $300 on all new stuff. In reality, it cost about $100 (there were about 300 pieces including major accessories) and she was truly truly happy.

I grew up too poor to get the "hottest" toys as a child and then when I grew up I still never really fell for all that. Lizzie is only 2 years old so she hasn't started asking for what all her friends have. So as of right now we are not falling for all that hype :)

Talk to me in 3 years when Lizzie is in school and all her friends are getting something and she wants it too....I don't know how I will react to that.

My daughter got two zhu-zhu pets from a family friend who got them in the ghetto of Detroit! lol she had never asked for them being only 4, but she sure was happy to have them!

I got my son the Little Tykes Sizzle and Serve kitchen this year...and it was the very last one in the store. I totally would've taken someone out for that thing, and the only reason I got it was because someone had placed it on hold and never picked it up! Hope she never finds out that I got it!
