LITTLE OLE BARGAIN HUNTER ME

Yep, that's me all right, bargain hunter Mamoo. Last week or the week before, I can't seem to remember so I guess it's no use to worry about it because it doesn't matter, I bought a big bag of Christmas cards at Value Village. I think that I paid something like $2.99
I could see some religious cards in the tightly packed plastic bag and since they are harder to find in the stores than the commercial one, I grabbed them but never bother to check them when I got home and put them in my desk drawer with the other cards since I was late for work.

Since I've been receiving some Christmas cards already and I usually receive a lot every year I thought that I better check my stock and I was surprised to see how many Religious Christmas cards I got in the bargain. I like to keep Christ into Christmas so this is perfect. Now I better get my address book out and start addressing those Christmas cards without delay. I still have some non religious cards for some friends who are not the religious type or are non Christian.


Now here is a very practical gift that my daughter sent her dad last Christmas, to encourage him to wipe his boots before coming into the house. It works great with mud or snow. I have it by the front door where my husband put it last year. It's available at Lee Valley garden centers.  I love it especially when it snows.It keeps the snow outdoors.  Thanks Christine.

Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment.  JB

  2. Good for you! I like the boot scraper too. My brother bought me one one year for my birthday. They are so handy. It all looks good Julia.

  4. We send out lots of cards too. The last few years I am so careful when picking out boxed cards - they have to say Merry Christmas not Happy Holidays.
