Didn't overeat! and clothes prices going south

December 17th, 2013 at 09:58 pm

The busiest week of the year is over (for me), YAY! Ice skate Christmas show as always: guaranteed to get the spirit going. From dress rehearsal to bake sale cake pop to gift table selling to ...

Toy Soldiers Spindle




The wire wrap jewelry is the hot sell. I think it will be the future of Pretty Cheap Jewelry. Total income from this last event of the year (after fees and taxes) is about $200.

Things fall into place on the calendar now. Today? A work potluck and gift exchange. I participated in the potluck but PASSED on the gift exchange. One of those 'steal the present' games. Not everyone plays. I wish folks would focus more on charitable giving instead of being a 'have'.

And I didn't overeat at the potluck!

My daughter would like an insulated vest (for skating) and after striking out in her size at 2 good sports stores I went to Old Navy. There I found the right thing, and yes, there are some significant discounts now. All long sleeve shirts are priced to move at $5, fleece jackets $8 and lots of other deals. I partook, and got a $10 coupon for January.

    I was in Old Navy today too. I didn't buy, but there were good deals and still lots of inventory! I expect that prices will be reduced fast after Christmas.

    What did you take to your potluck? My husband has one on Thursday.

    CCF - I took spinach rice (recipe from Diet for a Small Planet). Inexpensive, very wholesome, easy to put together and warms up well the day after. I can give the recipe if you want. Others brought- homemade refrained beans, tamales (bought), green salad, pumpkin pie, cookies, a couple other types of salads. I only ate one cookie!

    Yummy! And a nice mix of things. I think DH is taking a taco dip and chips. It should go over well with this group.
