    Started my Christmas shopping. Bought both of my children a Wii U deluxe set.

    I guess it is deluxe because it costs more and has a couple of extra plastic pieces. It was actually worth it because the sets came with the games they each wanted.

    I was browsing through The Container Store earlier today and got some adorable Christmas themed treat bags I'm sure I'll find a use for.

    I bought a large military tactical backpack, a knife, a compass, a Mylar blanket, and a water purification system.

    I'm upgrading my bug-out bag.

    Nice! My sister preps. She has a whole water purification system, food, etc. I've wanted to start something, but don't even know where to begin. I think a plan for water would be the most logical starting point. I live in the desert and we had a water contamination issue a few years back, and it caused major panic and chaos.

    My BF is a survivalist prepper. I'm more of a "keep myself okay for a few days until I find help" prepper. LOL

    He is helping me get more organized with what I already had. I live less than 10 miles from a government nerve gas storage facility. Our area also gets natural disasters like tornadoes and floods. We have had earthquakes, but they aren't common.

    I have to be able to shelter in place or evacuate.

    We racked up some points on my hubby's credit card! Got 3 pairs of boots, 2 dresses (one for Thanksgiving and another one maybe for Christmas). Went to craft fair and got a pretty ruffled scarf and some locally made lotions.

    Bought some Bath and Body Works goodies, most I'll keep while some will be part of a Christmas gift. On a whim I bought some cozy slippers from Vera Bradley.
    While I was out with my mom today I found a Betsy Johnson purse I loved. Mom asked for a blender a few weeks ago so I picked one up at Wal-Mart. Tis the season!

    I went to a Christmas craft and gift show today and picked up some gifts--glass ball ornaments with origami cranes inside, a t-shirt for my son and a beautiful wooden serving tray for my sister and brother-in-law.

    I went to one also but only bought 2 things for myself. My husband was with me and I will have to go alone to the next one on December 7th to look for gifts because he is too difficult to shop with :lol:

    It would be my husband's worst nightmare to go to a craft show! I went with a couple of friends from work.

    Went to the drug store/pharmacy today to pick up stocking stuffers and to stock up on some essentials. Took advantage of sale prices and redeemed loyalty points --almost $190 worth of stuff for less than $20 (most of that was taxes).

    I bought two really cute pairs of shoes. Tried posting pictures, but it was sent to the moderator on Wednesday. Oh, well . . . they're cute anyway.

    I also bought a 7" Kindle Fire HD for my mom. She doesn't own a television or a cell phone, much less anything else electronic. This should be interesting.

    I figured out that Wal-Mart was offering the best deal on iPad mini. I ordered one for $219. It's a classroom investment.

    I tried it again, and the same thing happened. Boo.

    I got a message that I had to wait 15 seconds between posts, but it was my first post. Then I tried again in 15 seconds and it went to the moderator again.

    And these. I was looking for something more substantial than a regular pump, but less than a boot.

    A plane ticket to bring my daughter home for Christmas! We usually pick her up, but she's going to spend a few days at her boyfriend's (which is 4 hours in the opposite direction). Can't argue with less than $100!
