I get so excited when the toy sales start that I have to remind myself that I only have the one child to buy for! I usually try to pick a few things out for Christmas while they are on special. I am waiting out for the Target one hoping that they have the toy I am after on special. My husband has been trying to avoid the stores because he knows how full the trolley can get :)

  • Good idea to pick things out for Christmas; all savings help the family budget.

  • Reading all the catalogs and then cooling off before I go shopping is necessary for me.

  • I LOVE the toy sales too. I really love that this year you could buy in advance and layby ahead of time. I HATE having to go to the store when the sales are on. There are some people who aren’t so nice and start pushing and shoving or complaining loudly about the line at layby. I don’t enjoy that side of the toy sales.

  • I always look for good specials threw out the year and if I get to the sales than I get some then as well but I do 2 lay bys 1 for Christmas That’s when I normally get each child’s main presents and the second is for the birthdays but this year with things going on I don’t think I will get near any of them so I will watch for toy sales closer to the end of the year. I must admit I did love them alot more when I was working and did not have to worry about the totals

  • I know it’s hard to resist, but depending on the age of your child, sometimes it can be a mistake buying too early. Every time I bought early, the kids changed their minds to what they just had to have. If possible leave on lay-by till the last minute, so you can return it if need be
