The Gift Count

I went by Best Buy this afternoon, with my updated budget, to grab 2 last gifts and blow out the money. We’re now at 65 gifts, according to my daughter’s count. Lots of DVDs and books, but I’ve added in a few nicer things that we’ll randomly give away:

  • A digital camera
  • A digital picture frame
  • Two Nintendo DSes
  • A few Best Buy gift cards
  • Some handheld games
  • Flash drives

and more.

I’m thinking that I’ll save a $150 gift card, a Zune HD, and a camera for the big gamblers this year.

Lots of great prizes, and about a 1 in 2 or 1 in 3 chance of winning. If you didn’t use the SSC3D code when you registered, be sure to do it next year. We will try to have a new one set up before the end of the year.
