Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, Cyber Monday, Giving Tuesday... I thought Thursday night was the kick off but starting last weekend sale emails and ads on Instagram were in full swing. I'm all for a deal and I love a discount but I really felt myself almost buying things that were simply not necessary this year. Maybe I just have a different lens right now or maybe I'm tired and weary from so much activity leading up to Thanksgiving (and a sick toddler). Maybe I am just being a touch cynical?! So to be fair, here is a list of things I bought this week. Most of them were things I was actually looking for but of course a few unnecessary items slipped in.
Happy shopping friends, or don't do any shopping... whatever floats your boat :) You do YOU!
D A U G H T E R:
Christmas gift from her Grandma. I've seen some super cute remodels of wood playhouses and I would love to think I could pull that off. This one is cute already so if I don't end up painting the door I will still be happy looking at it and Georgia will love it! And it was cheaper than some of the plastic playhouse options.
Also a gift from another Grandma. I couldn't bring myself to ask for the Pottery Barn equivalent ($499 originally) but now that one is on sale for $347 so I'm having buyers remose and I didn't even buy this item. If you are on the hunt here's the link to the PB version you've probably seen all over Instagram.
Let's just say, Jeff has a lot of items sitting in our garage that need to be assembled.
Becuase I can't say no to cute toddler shoes.
Becuase I fear being judged I'm simply going to link to the sale page. I overbought. I have a weakness for cute kids clothing. 40% off with code PINKFRIDAY

This will be his third pair of wireless headphones. I'm hoping he doesn't lose or break these #fingerscrossed
He likes gadgets and I like to clean my phone with lysol wipes so it's a win win for our household. I hope he doesn't read this, maybe he'll pretend to be surprised.
He's a sweaty guy, tmi but enough said. Stocking stuffer maybe.
He requested a new one and sent this link.
For $31 I will try this out. I read reviews and have 75% faith it's basically a Dyson without the pricetag. I could be wrong, it wouldn't be the first time. I hate buying a knockoff but I also like keeping my money in the bank when I can. It's a personal predicament. But hairdryers is where I bend my "no fakes" rule.
I don't have one like this, looks like a good quality, 60% off and free shipping with code: YAYDEALS
Handy to have around. Already use it on Thanksgiving for a group photo.
Clearly an unnecessary item that slipped in. Super cute, showed up quickly! I also saw them on Alibaba for $2 but that takes three months for delivery, time is money people. I won't need them for $2 in February.
Saw these in Target in black and they were cute but I needed the tan color.

MiL saw one and liked it, found them on sale so it was a win win!
Not Barefoot Dreams but looks comfy!
I wore mine on Thanksgiving and she liked it.

I guess this could be listed under "Me" but it's really for all of us to enjoy #rationalizing hah
For our front door area. Cheap enough that I don't care if they get messed up but I'm hopeful it will last a few seasons.
I couldn't pull the trigger on a flocked tree. Maybe a small one next year and have two trees?! I'm just not sure if we are a two tree house or not, tbd.
My neighborhood really gets into the seasonal decorating so this (and the garlands) is my attempt to participate.
