My favorite time of the year is here!  I LOVE LOVE LOVE October because it is the start of my favorite holiday season…first Halloween – FUN when you have kids, I suppose even when you don’t there’s always something to do… 🙂 Then there’s Thanksgiving and soon after that – CHRISTMAS!! Not to mention this year is going to be especially exciting because we have our first baby boy due at the end of this month.

Holiday Shopping at Big Lots

We love shopping Big Lots because of the selection. You can find anything there and it’s really great value for great prices. I love Big Lots around the holidays because they put all of their holiday stuff out at once and you can start shopping for Christmas already if you wanted to! For this shopping trip we headed over to the Halloween section because my girls have been saying they want to be Mermaids this Halloween. I had been looking everywhere for this specific Mermaid princess dress that my little one had seen on TV but I had not been able to find it. But low and behold – Big Lots had it! So we scooped two up for them. If you have kiddos that are this age and only a year apart, then you will understand why we need two of the same thing of everything.

In addition to costumes we also got a few decorations for around the home. I personally love Fall decor and colors versus scary mummies around the home, so we found that aisle and scooped up a few things for the home.

Have you made a stop by Big Lots lately? If you haven’t the holidays are definitely a time where you can find some really cute things for amazing deals.

Stay tuned because I have been eyeing some furniture I want for our home. I’ll probably head back on over to get it!
