Bargains!

My oldest daughter and I ran out last night to get some medicine for my youngest. We could have just run to Walgreens (very close to our house), but since I ran out of Christmas wrapping paper this year, I decided to run to Target so that I could pick up a couple of rolls for next year. I'm a BIG fan of the after Christmas sales! Well, I got more than a couple of rolls of wrapping paper and some medicine! I found all of these cute tags, and I think I'll be incorporating some of them in my Christmas cards next year.


I have Santa die cuts, Snowman tags, foil tags, and some tags that are actually miniature cards with string. However, check out those metal rimmed tags! I saw them before Christmas, but I didn't want to pay full price for them. Half price sounds good to me! I love the metal rimmed gift tags! I think they'll definitely inspire me next year when I'm creating my cards. The fun thing is that I'm going to put them out of sight, and then next year, they'll be like a present for me!


Then, my youngest had been admiring this ceramic penguin platter, but we really didn't need a penguin platter! However, when it's half off, you can justify owning things like this! She had also wanted to buy me a penquin coffee mug, but they were sold out, but they did still have this snowman mug, so I treated myself to an after-Christmas gift. As you can see, it has my morning coffee in it!

So, those are my bargains that I purchased last night. Love half-off sales!! I'm still kinda vacationing from blog hopping, but I will be visiting you all very soon. It might be the 2nd week of January before I visit your blog, but I will be around. Thanks for stopping by!
