Nipple Noel

I was going to call this post, "I'm a boob" but I'm just to classy for that.
The totals are getting ugly and I'm depressed a bit about it. Be kind in the comments or I'll delete them. Yes, I'm in that pissy of a mood. Haha. I figure as long as I don't spend anywhere near as much as I did last year($1858.71), I have made progress. Say what you will, I'm still brave enough to track all of it and put it on my blog.
Here is what I have had come in

I wasn't able to work any deals and I'm a little mad at myself for not starting this earlier. Jewel had a deal this summer that if you bought $100 in gift cards you got a $20 cat. Live and learn.

I've paid $1085.75 for all of the above, if I had paid full price it would have been $2797.82. $512.25 has come out of my pocket for Christmas this year so far(I have $290 in Walmart cards coming that is included in the $512.25).Yeah, yeah I know, I'm overspending.  I've saved 61.2% so far. I've made $863.50 in free money not including free gift cards and free gifts.
I think that I'm almost done once the Walmart cards come in. Den usually takes $30 and gets candy for the stockings. He also likes to bring something in like candy for some of the women at work. I'll let you know what the total is. 
I'm off to drink(I wanna be like Mark when I grow up),

I know, you may find this surprising, but I'm really not a "breast man".

wOWSA you buy for a lot of people... Am I on that list?
"Jewel had a deal this summer that if you bought $100 in gift cards you got a $20 cat." REALLY? They give you a $20 cat? Are they even worth $20? I know where you can get some cats for free!

SonyaAnn said...

Mark-I'll drink with you but you have to show me your boobs.

SonyaAnn said...

McVal-HAHA I would never pay $20 for a cat, I would just steal someone elses cat.
