It doesn't matter that Halloween and bonfire night is yet to come.........
Christmas is coming!!
No, I'm not the type to put my trimmings up as the bonfire is still burning. I do, however, like to be ready.
All of my boys have birthdays in the month after Christmas (No, I didn't plan well), it costs a fortune. It's not like I'm the type to buy lots of presents, either. Having 2 children in the house on the autistic spectrum means I have to be careful. They can be easily overwhelmed, a lesson I have learnt the hard way.
Still, I like to get them what they specifically want. It's my one chance a year to spend my money on them, without being told off for forgetting myself!
I do like to find good deals too, well who doesn't?
I have a film addict and a gamer here, both of them have Xbox's, but the eldests' has stopped playing discs. It's driving him crazy that he can't watch his favourite DVDs or play his favourite games.
I could buy him a DVD player, but that wouldn't solve the gaming problem. So I've started looking at prices, and was slightly disappointed! I thought the price of an Xbox 360 would go down, now the new type is out. Mostly, I found, they were the same price.
Until I found these great Xbox deals online at Tesco. I'm over the moon that it's within my price range.
I also think it's a good deal for parents that are dipping their toes into the gaming world, it's a bit of a minefield and you don't want to spend a fortune on your child's first one.
I'm even considering one for myself. With so many film providers linking up to game consoles, it's cheaper to get one of these as a way of streaming films.
Definitely worth a look, because............
Christmas is coming!
