Best Buy Selling Toys Now

I got a Best Buy Toy Catalog in the mail 11/8. The prices are good through 11/11. It looks like it may be online only. I'm wondering if they are testing out the waters with Toys R Us struggling. Here's the online link to the catalog -

Re: Ugh - How to do the holidays without sugar? Impossible!

Maybe mashed cauliflower instead of mashed potatoes? Not the same but an alternative for those on low carbs. We've added butter for flavor but maybe some onions fried in olive oil with garlic?

Re: College bound Christmas Ideas, Help!

My oldest is a freshman in college. We got her a Samsung Galaxy for Christmas last year. She had been using a flip phone through high school. I would wait on a lot of the college things. From my experience of last year, so many things can change from now until August. High school required an iPad bu...

Re: Bella brand kitchen small appliances?

I picked up a Bella donut maker for my little bakers at Christmas a few years ago. It was a good price on Black Friday. I figured if it didn't work or if didn't get used often, then I wasn't out of a lot of money. It seems to do it's job but that's the only appliance that I have from them. It gets p...

Re: Total cost vs Number of items? How do you decide what you are buying your kids for Christmas?

I thought I'd throw out an idea that we've been doing for a few years. We spend about $200 per child and then we do a "family" gift which might be about another $100 a person. One year, it was a Wii. Another year it was horseback riding. Last year was a day of zip lining. The "experie...

Re: Total cost vs Number of items? How do you decide what you are buying your kids for Christmas?

Congratulations! We stick to a certain amount per person too. I try to buy things on sale so I can get more for my money. We have had to explain a few years in a row that we spend the same amount of money and that the gadgets that are small are also more expensive. They are starting to understand it...

Re: BF at Amazon

I didn't see any recent threads for this (and didn't want to resurrect a dead one) so please don't yell at me I don't do a lot of shopping on Amazon, but there are some books I've found that I'd like to get. Does Amazon do any generic sales (buy x get y free, x% off some department, etc) or is it u...

Re: Halloween 2017

I don't dress up but I do like to sit outside handing out the candy and talking with the neighbors while my husband takes our daughter out. We'll probably watch It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown the night before.

Re: Christmas shopping

I think my biggest gift to my daughter (and shamelessly myself) will be a trip to Las Vegas for the Monster Jam World Finals in March. Tickets are being sold for $100/person ($200 for a package deal which includes many amenities). Rather than flying out to Vegas, I'm thinking about making it more s...

Re: Toys R US Possible Bankruptcy

I heard this on the radio today. If I heard it right, Toys R Us is planning, at this point, to remain open for Christmas. It will sure be a different experience shopping for toys at WalMart or KMart. I liked the selection at Toys R Us but not the price. Black Friday has been my favorite time to shop...

Re: 100 days and counting

Wow, well I'm going to have to pay a lot more attention to the Thursday deals this year then! I think I'll probably stick to twinkie's idea about online Thurs and in store Fri. It really is a shame that the deals have switched over to Thanksgiving like that though. Who has the energy to shop after ...
