I mentioned that my kids were super excited about The Great Big Christmas Book by Toys“R”Us. (You can pick one up today or check out the online version of The Great Big Christmas Book.) After looking through the book over and over and over, it was time to take the Christmas lists to the next level. We wanted to go to the store and let them take a look. I also wanted to reward them each with one gift. They have been so amazing through all of our major life transitions, moves, and health scares the last few months. Both brought home great grades and behavior and I wanted to reward them. I told them each that they could have $25 to spend. I showed them our Toys“R”Us coupons from the Big Book and explained how they worked. They could pick as many or as few things as they wanted within the $25. And with that, they were off! First stop, the games. We love family game nights and my kids want a lot of games for Christmas. I was amazed at the great prices of the board games. So many were on sale! I decided to come home and order some NOW for Christmas. I loved the aisle full of $1 items. I knew that would be perfect for stocking stuffers. My kids considered spending all $25 on those items. Imagine all the goodies they could buy! Little man stumbled upon the Mutant Masher. He has been wanting these guys. And to my delight they were on SALE. So while $25 would only get the truck at another store, we were able to get the truck and a set of Mutants. He was so excited! Little lady knew what she wanted before we arrived. She wanted Beados™ Super Studio. Normally they are $29.99 but this weekend they were $24.99. SCORE! She was so excited! It was fun having the kids make decisions and consider the cost of things. It was a learning experience for them. They could see why mom and dad can not buy everything they dreamed of. But we could get a few. Thankfully Toys“R”Us makes stretching your dollar a little easier and FUN! Would you like to know about the that we bought? Wondering if they are worth your Christmas money? Here are 2 videos of my kids that might help.
