shopping steals & deals!

it's that time of the year y'all!
i am very happy so say that i have bought all of my family & friends gifts & most are even wrapped!
all i have left are my kids & husband.

as the kids get older, it's not as easy as buying the latest in legos, hot wheels and amercian girl dolls.
the flip flops kids are into persols, cars, lacoste & true religion!
thats why i buy lotto tickets each week

i love a good deal as it helps me not feel so bad for my splurges:)
i wanted to share some online shopping clubs that you may or may not be familiar with. if it weren't for blogging and/or twitter, i wouldn't know about any of them. if you know of any that i leave off, please feel free to share/link so others can check them out.

  15. Good morning my friend.. these are some fabulous sites you are sharing!!! A couple I was aware of ... but will check out the others!! I like browsing net-a-porter.com ~ they are still a bit on the expensive end BUT their sales are amazing!!

    I'm almost done the Christmas shopping!! Goal is to be finished by end of Nov.

    With Thanksgiving in Oct. here in Canada, the tree has gone up, and we are slowly decorating it.

    Can't wait to read about your marathon!!! Happy Tuesday ! Many blessings, xo HHL
