Why I shop after Christmas sales

Now comes the “after Christmas shopping”.

Christmas shopping

Do any of you go out and buy your gift wrapping paper for next year?

How about discounted Christmas decorations?


I don’t do any  of this because I learned a long time ago that nothing is cheaper the day after Christmas.

JoAnn’s has already discounted Christmas by 70%. So why bother?

Target almost is never discounted more the day after than it was the day before.

HOWEVER, there is one item I’m interested in enough to head out and face the madness.


(Here’s what I ended up with. $1.99 a skein MINUS 20%. Yikes, only about $1.60. per skein. Why didn’t I buy it all? It’s really soft yarn. Only problem is I have to use smaller needles which means the scarves don’t go as fast. )yarn balls

There is a  wonderful yarn sale at JoAnn’s plus there is an extra 20% off of that price. So that’s a great deal.

Here’s the plan. I’d like to knit some really special “shawls” for all the women on my Christmas list. Plus, I like to have “busy” hands at all times.

If you’re not a knitter, these may not appeal to you.  But if you are, look at some of these beautiies.




I knitted this one. It’s a great length and width. The variegated yarn worked up really nice.

Faith, Sigh, and DIY

Hi! My blog is eclectic but mostly I blog about spiritual issues (faith) and how our faith is impacted by our mental health, especially depression (the sigh.) I also throw in some DIY. Hope you find my blog helpful and inspirational.
