Kids' Christmas and Birthday Shopping Done!

June 6th, 2018 at 06:00 am

I went to one Toys R Us last week and another this week. I was told they would be closed by the end of June. I managed to buy for four kids Xmas and Birthdays. I spent $158 total, but I had it in my sinking funds. I figured better to spend it now than to pay full price (or close to it) later on.

I also bought an extra gift for my grandson for finishing Kindergarten this week. I did additional shopping on behalf of a friend as well for her grandson. That is not included in the total. She will reimburse me.

In case you're curious, the markdowns average 50% off (40-60%). There was even new stuff. For example, I got my grandson Incredibles 2 toys.

They are the last of the Toys R Us Kids Frown

    Toys R Us closing is so sad to me. I wish people were more willing to shop at their local stores rather than buying everything on Amazon. Frown I used to love the thrill of being in a big toy store when I was a kid. I have a lot of memories. I'm glad you were able to get some good deals.

    I think we're all going to eventually regret the rush to buy on Amazon. Will we like it so much when there's nothing else? I, for one, like to look at and handle what I'm buying.

    I have significantly cut down on Amazon. I don't mind giving them my business to a point. They have great customer service. However, too many stores are going out of business these days.

    Yet another brick and mortar biting the dust. Sadly, I think the trend will continue since so many think online shopping is the only way. We will all pay for that. Personally, online is my last resort because I like to see what I'm getting before I purchase it. Glad you found some great deals and could buy presents ahead.
