    I hit the shoe jackpot at the thrift store. I got five pairs of shoes for under $10. None of them even looked like they'd been worn. They were mostly vintage stuff. Spectator pumps. Kitten heels. These aren't vintage, but so cute!

    I found a nice black/silvery Calvin Klein sweater at Costco for $19. It's a bit oversized and perfect with a sort of short rufflley skirt that I have.

    I ordered more Arduino parts from spark fun. They give a teacher discount!

    I bought another Audio Technica ATR 2100 mic that was on sale and the Sony MDR 7506 Headphones. These are some of our favorite recording equipment for our Teaching Bites Show Podcast. These are the best value podcasting and audio equipment for the price!

    iPad pro. Still waiting since launch day for the backordered Apple pencil. I love the new big size, but I'm still using my air for reading in bed.

    Organic freeze dried raspberries (that have to be specially ordered) for my not at all over indulged tiny parrot.

    I finally joined the tablet world and got a iPad Air 2. I have a kindle fire but never really used it as a tablet. I also got a dehumidifier for our house and one for my parents. I've ordered most of my Christmas presents online today. I'll still have to get little stocking stuffers.

    Molly... I grow organic raspberries! Maybe we should freeze dry& sell them lol! Seriously though got plants from my gma. I sprayed garlic & water one year because Japanese beetles were horrible. Haven't sprayed since! Sadly a bunch froze before they were ready to pick this year. I have to move some around. They are growing so thick.

    I gave up growing berries. First the deer and birds got them, then when I got a strong net, bears got them.

    I tried dehydrating fresh berries but she wouldn't those. Picky bird. She really loves these though-she makes the most amazing series of happy chortles while eating them. She also coats the floor with raspberry powder.

    I bought an Alienware Gaming computer for the BF. I'm trying to return an earlier order (I accidentally ordered the wrong thing), but Dell is being a nightmare with customer service right now.

    I bought my dad an iPhone 6 for Christmas. Although he got his phone today (we went to pick it out this evening), I'll get him something small to open up on Christmas.

    He has had his iPhone 4 since 2010. My brother, sister, and I were starting to get so frustrated because he would either not receive our texts at all or get them a week or two after we sent them. He refused to by himself a new phone! :rolleyes:

    I find that parent gifts end up being things they need but won't by for themselves . My mom is notorious for that!

    So as I'm sure many of you guys get as well, I'm getting good coupons in the mail from various retailers ($10 off any purchase at JCPenney, $10 off at Charming Charlie, etc. WITHOUT having to spend a certain required amt., $25 off $50 at Sephora, which they've never given before, etc.)

    So far, the other day @ JCP for
    ONLY $4.32, I got 2 pairs of slipper socks AND cozy pj pants! :D

    I got lured by Polo Ralph Lauren not being excluded from extra markdowns. I bought a skirt, shirt, and sweater. Bad me! I need to save for a trip to Ireland; this isn't the way to do it.
