Holly Jolly Christmas


Yes my Christmas shopping has begun.  Am i completely out of line?

The thing is i love Christmas!  I love the meaning behind it, the gathering of friends and family and getting the perfect gift.

I figure if i start getting presents now it saves a bunch of financial strain and shopping stress at the end of the year and i can get the bargains as soon as i see them.

Bring on Christmas baking, gift wrapping and crafting!  Don't worry i'll start that a bit later!

So what's your shopping style?
"no sweat i've been shopping since the start of this year"
"I'll start to think about it now"
"Bring on shopping during the silly season"
"Christmas eve will do"



Holly Hacks - peel away sandwich wrapper


Love this hack from lifehacker.

If you can't be bothered with plastic bags or you've run out give this a go.

All you need is two paper towels that are still connected. Lay them out and put the sandwich in the middle so that the tear off line goes right through the middle of the sandwich.  Fold the bottom up, then that same section back the way it came.  Now bring the upper portion all the way around the sandwich and fold the sides under.

When you want to eat it just peel off the top section at the tear off line




Little Shop/Holly Hack


New World's Little Shop is all the rage at the moment.  Collecting little mini toy food products with every $40 you spend.

I've been doing the maths (yes it's very rare that i venture into anything that includes the word 'maths')

So there's 50 new collectables and you need to spend $40 for each one.  Provided you don't get double ups you will have spent $2000 on groceries to collect them all not to mention all the little shop accesories.

Here's where it turns into a Holly Hack.  Yesterday when i was doing my gorceries i noticed they scan each little shop collectable before putting it in your bag.  When it's scanned it came up as 3cents (hoping my memory served me correctly on that one), so surely if it has a barcode and a price you could just buy them all and not spend a fortune.  Hey it may not be a possibility but worth a try.

Ok this has to be the most random blog i've ever written.  

I can't deny that Little Shop was a clever idea and the little food products are so cute!
