we always go and do a bit of Boxing Day shopping to take advantage of the sales. However over the years we do less and less and this year I only wanted to visit a couple of stores. Number one on the list was Michael's, I picked up some yarn for scarves and some dish clothes. The yarn for the scarves after the coupons was well under $5 each, and will make great gifts for Christmas and birthdays.
I picked up 8 Christmas cakes tins for the 2013 Cookie Swap party we are hosting next year. Paid just over $1 each for them:
Went to Canadian Tire and picked up a new snow shovel, a tool thingy for dh and two new frying pans for me. Spent over $60, so we got a $15 gift card to spend before the end of January.
Went to Mark's Work Wearhouse and got a new pair of slippers each, a pair of fingerless gloves for dh and some ear plugs, as we were 3 cents short of $50, and I had a $10 off coupon when you spend $50.
I think I may pop up to Barrie on Friday and check out the mall to see what's on sale there. I couldn't be bothered to fight the crowds on Wednesday, although it wasn't too bad. I also want to pop back into Michael's for a couple of things that would be great gifts for the cookie swap party.
Do you shop the Boxing Day sales?
