Disney Store is in the middle of its big sale both online at Disneystore.com and in the retail locations.
This sale only happens twice a year – duh. Its a great time to stock on on park souvenirs or presents for next year, really you can save some $$.
I give you a cautionary tale about stocking up too early though. Years ago, my sister wanted a Kodak Instamatic and my mom got it for her when she saw it on sale and socked it away. Christmas came and Santa could NOT locate where the camera had been stashed. It became a joke in our house for years to follow about Santa NOT being able to find the camera. Turns out, when my dad finally moved out of the house; he found it in the linen closet…..under piles of sheets and towels. It had been there for 20 years I think.
This Christmas – the legacy of memory lapse lived on in me. Santa was having a very hard time locating a present for Mini Me. Being his helper I looked high and low for it and came across this:
Yep, Belle and Tiana, bought last year through Disneystore.com at the Twice Upon a Year Sale for a bargain. My purchase logic, they would finish out our princess collection – which was good because Mini Me loves playing with her princess plush. The plan was, one for birthday and one for Christmas, but I stashed them away so well I forgot about them. I do believe the spirits of Christmas past directed me to them since I wasn’t even looking for them. Santa delivered them this year.
Know what else I forgot about….now this is funny, cuz um its NOT exactly a small purchase.
Yeah, Space Mountain. In looking for the missing present, I didn’t look in big unmarked box. The day after Chrsitmas Mr. RWFR comes up from the basement and asked, “what are you planning on doing with Space Mountain?”
Well, apparently WE do in our house. SO now space mountain sits in the basement until I can remember to gift it to Mini Me. Hopefully it will be before we sell this house…which no plans anytime soon for us to move! I wonder what other treasures are in our basement?
So remember as you shop for bargains at :
You will need to remember where you stash your future gifts and park souvenirs. Oh and as always if you spend more than $75, you can get FREE shipping using promo code “SHIPMAGIC”. Have a Magical Shopping Experience!
Oh and PLEASE tell me I am not the only one who forgets about stashed presents?
