Christmas Shopping in October

I know, I know. It is way too early for a Christmas post, but I am just too excited and had to share this with you guys.

Last week, we had to go to Costco to get our tires rotated. If I am being completely honest I left the store upset, without my tires rotated the first time. Due to a few things; customer service was absolutely horrendous and I had a cranky toddler. In retrospect, my timing was not good. My son was ready for his nap and I should not have tried to go out when I did.

However, we returned a few nights later for my mother-in-law to purchase our son’s Halloween costumes. She buys their costumes every year and we decided to all meet there after various activities and have dinner after buying the costumes. As we were walking through the aisles, I noticed they had some amazing toys the boys would love for Christmas.

As you may or may not know, Costco is constantly changing what they have in their stores. I mentioned to my husband that we could probably complete our Christmas shopping in one stop, but we had to do it soon. I was trying to figure out how to make our finances work for this when I remembered, I had been saving for months!

In July, I opened a savings account with a company called digit.co. They set aside savings based upon your account specifically. The reason I had forgotten about this account was because it had been working so well, I never missed the money that was being saved. I looked at the account and realized it had more than enough to buy the gifts we wanted to purchase! I was ecstatic!

This morning, I put my toddler in the car (nowhere near nap time) and finished the bulk of our Christmas shopping. The loot is pictured below!

You can sign up for your own digit account here. All of the money is FDIC insured and if you start saving now you might be set for Christmas, too! If not, there are always reasons to save money; vacations, birthdays, retirement.The list goes on and on.

Happy shopping, friends!!

Shhhh, don’t tell my kids!

Hey mom, this piece of pizza is huge!

Can I play with this now?
