I’ve fretted over this post a lot. I don’t want to push consumerism. I read this post last week, and it had its impact.

But, on the other hand, I know what a blessing it is to me to find out that something I’ve been wanting to get is finally on sale. I like to be clued in about those things.

So, here are my cautionary words of wisdom.

I want you and your family to have a wonderful holiday season. I want you to stretch your dollar until it screams for mercy. I want you to make sweet memories this year that don’t bog you down with too much stuff.

That said, go and find the right deals and make the best purchases for YOUR family, those that increase your well-being and improve your life.

I know you can do it.

Compass Classroom Curriculum Sale

Compass Classroom

My kids have loved the Visual Latin curriculum from Compass Classroom. Learning Latin is actually fun the way Dwane teaches it. Currently, FishBoy13 is taking the film class. We’ve been super impressed with these DVD and online courses. They are great not only for homeschooling but also for enrichment, if you just want to give your kids a little something more.

This weekend get 20% off everything in the Compass Classroom.

What’s YOUR approach to holiday sales shopping?

  1. I find generally (not always) I can find as good or better sales year around with coupons and such. I try to be done Christmas shopping by black Friday. Even so, this year I went to Wal-Mart JUST to get a mini-crock that was on sale for $4.50. I hadn’t seen a sale that was better, and it has been on my wish list for months! I literally didn’t buy anything else

  2. Our black Friday shopping consisted of my husband buying a quart of motor oil and 2 packages of peanut butter M&Ms for us to share on the ride home. I stayed in the van with the kids!

Thanks so much for participating in this conversation about "a mom's life."

This is a place where moms can be themselves. Remember that each mother's path looks a little different. Please keep your comments respectful and kind. Reasonable minds will disagree in a nice way.

So let's talk about it, using "our big girl words."
