Did you guys see the awesome train set deal I posted about earlier this week? This Life Like Pacific Train is still only $34.99 on Amazon! I had Amazon gift cards that I earned by searching the internet with Swagbucks, so that made our family Christmas present absolutely FREE! I had been planning to get this for the family this year, because my kids are absolutely in love with trains. I was expecting to have to spend a lot of money, but was so excited and blessed to find this deal on Amazon!
Isn’t it cute? Oh, and you can see my free tree skirt that is just two yards of fabric I picked up free from someone last year on freecycle. I didn’t even have to sew it. I just hid the unsewn ends in the folds, and it looks perfect!
It is such a delight to have this train for my kids, and it didn’t cost me anything! If you haven’t signed up with Swagbucks yet, you really should! You search the internet and randomly earn points that you can redeem for prizes like gift cards, games and so much more! Be sure to also tell your friends about it too, because you earn points that way as well!
And onto the groceries…
