Purchase with a Purpose

I do not like to shop.  I know . . . what kind of girl doesn't like to shop?  This one!  Usually it is because one of two things end up happening.  1) I have money, but can't find a single thing that I like or that fits.  or 2) I find lots of things I would like, but have no money to buy them.  Either way, it stinks.  I will say, though, that having kids has changed this a bit.  I can get lost in cute little kid outfits!

So all this Black Friday stuff is just crazy to me.  There is absolutely nothing that I need or want bad enough to get out in the middle of the night when people are literally getting C.R.A.Z.Y! 

If you're shaking your head in agreement . . . I've got just the thing to help you get your Christmas shopping done without having to endure the midnight madness. 

If you love the rush of camping out next to strangers, racing down aisles, and grabbing the very last $12 laptop, then go for it.  But still check out this stuff for all the Christmas prizes you don't find tonight!

I'm part of a facebook group for families adopting from Ethiopia through AGCI.  One of the ladies put together everyone's fundraisers on her blog.  What a better way to shop for Christmas . . . from the comfort of your home, buying great stuff for those you love, and all the sales go to bringing a little one home from Ethiopia!
