Getting a Head Start

… on Christmas shopping!

We have just about 150 days till Christmas, and less than 110 days till the little boy arrives! My goal is to have the shopping and wrapping done before the end of October… that’s only 97 more days to complete everything!

Well, with all the school supplies going on sale (already) I decided to stop by Target yesterday to see what they had on sale! I’m planning on making Kendall an art box and filling it with all sorts of supplies. Check out everything I picked up:

Each item was under $1… and some things under$0.50! So, here is what I got:

  • 3 packs of alphabet stickers
  • 2 packs of crayons
  • Markers (not sure she will be able to use these yet)
  • Heavy weight paint and maker paper
  • Construction paper
  • Colored pencils
  • Water-based paint and paintbrush
  • 2 coloring books
  • 4 pack s of sticker (jumbo packs each with TONS of stickers)

We already have some art supplies, but it will be nice to not have as many broken crayons and new coloring books! I also have an old plastic bin with a handle that I’m going to put everything into to help it stay organized!

As a bonus buy, I found this in the checkout line: 

All Dogs Go To Heaven 1 and 2 movies (under $5)

Yes, I know its a little sad, but its dogs… and you know how Kendall loves dogs!

Maybe you would much rather have Thomas the Train… they had that one too, and you guessed it… under $5 as well!


Don’t forget to share your great Christmas (Holiday) gift ideas below in the comments section. I’m always looking for good ideas and new things for everyone on list.

Thanks for reading!

  1. Ahhh! I loved that movie as a child! Can’t believe you found it! So fun! 🙂 so proud of you for getting going on your shopping! It’s kind of exciting too to think about Christmas with 2 kids! Yay! Another gift idea for kendall- dress up box full of frilly things, magic wands, gloves, crowns, etc. The dollar store has lots of this and you can get other things gradually as they go on sale.
