I am wrapping up my sisters present to mail her and I realize the most money that will be spent will be on shipping. The shipping will also include the other presents in the priority box and gift cards.

I spent about 1.00 on my sister, not including tax.

What did I get her for 1.00 not including tax?

3 Pairs of Victoria Secret Panties
1 Mascara (Loreal)
1 Lip Gloss from Victoria Secret
1 Bookmark that I beaded for her
1 Foundation
1 Lip Plumping Kit
1 Lip Gloss from Bath and Body Works.

I think I did pretty well and I feel like I really am sending her some great gifts. I almost feel like I am "spoiling" her, yet I didn't spend anything except for tax and for the beads for the bookmark.

Yay for coupons, and rebaes. WOOT WOOT!

Sure, I spent more on other people... but I think she is making out the best. I got other people checks or gift cards. (The people that I am mailing to)

I did really well for Matthew's presents too...

a 1.00 car calendar
some brut cologne free after rebate
two packages of his favorite liquid bath soap, free after rebate
1 pillow, free after JCPenny mail gift cheque
8.00 watch that he will REALLY like from Big lots, just like the nice Timex ones with the velcro band
Giving him back some of his Legos that he lost over a year ago for being really naughty.

So, he is making out really, really well also.

Jewelry for yourself, or for a friend. Breastfeeding aides, beautiful bracelets, earings and more.

Wow!! Thats a lot of stuff you got for that cheap!! Great job!!

After years of trying, 2 years of fertility meds, multiple surgeries, blood draws and needle sticks, some awful pre-IVF complications, and endometriosis and PCOS,
We are done TTC. Praying for peace as we accept this...
Hoping for some comfort after our most recent (and 3rd) surgery and starting Lupron!
