Monica’s Wish List…


It is never easy for me to make a wish list. I do not often stop to think about what I want for Christmas. Let’s start by looking back to last years list to see if there was anything I did not get, but still want.

Just Dance 4 for Xbox: My children are getting an xbox kinect from grandma and grandpa this year. So I bought this game for them. But secretly it is really for me. I love dancing and I have heard that this games works really well for timed workouts! I also bought the Just Dance Disney in case the Just Dance 4 is too adult for my kidos. Get a deal on the Just Dance 4 and Just Dance Disney for only $9.99!

generator for christmas

Portable Generator: I have been wanting on of these for a while. After all the storms on the East Coast this fall I feel even more a need to be prepared for natural disaster. I think that having a generator is a huge part of that. It is kind of a boring practical gift. But what can I say I have always been practical. This one is the best seller on amazon.

flash drive


Flash Drive 32 GB: My husband spoiled me and I did get that Canon Camera I wanted last year! It came with an 8 GB flash drive which is great for pictures, but when I am doing video I feel that I need more space. This one is only $22.42! Should make a nice stocking stuffer for me.


Professional 72-inch TRIPOD: My cute little kids broke my tripod so it will not collapse. So I am in need of a new one. This one comes with a bag and is only $19.95!

Digital Photo Frame– I have always thought it would be fun to have a digital photo frame. I think my boys might even get more thrill out of it than me. They love to see pictures of themselves. What kid doesn’t?
5 gallon buckets gamma lids

Gamma Seal Lid  and 5 Gallon White Bucket  $3.97.  I am seriously dorky… but I want some of these 5 gallon buckets to store my rice and flour! Plus I want these cool lids that are easy for me to get off, but not easy for pests to get inside of. PS Santa… I do not care what color the gamma lids are. Just buy the color with the best price. But if you could get 3 different colors with out multiple shipping costs that would be super fab!

Collapsible Cupcake and Cake Carrier: My boys are finally old enough for me to take cupcakes to the classroom. I was debating it every mom really needs one of these and my friend Stephanie who has one told me they are so awesome and every mom does need one. She is just frugal like me, so I am taking her advice. I LOVE this on because it is collapsible which is great for my crowded kitchen and it has a cute display rack!

zumba for xbox
Zumba Fitness Rush– This is the top rated Zumba game and it is only $29.99! This is a fitness game that I would love to try. I love that it features several different styles of dance and more than 40 songs!

Ticket To Ride 1910 Expansion: I think it would be fun to have the expansion to one of my favorite games Ticket to Ride!

Do you see anything on my list wish list that you like?

    I love your list. I think I want everything on that list too. I’m not sure about the Ticket to Ride game. Never heard of that one. Merry Christmas!!

    Your can actually find the 5 gallon buckets at Lowe’s and Home Depot for under $2 each as long as you don’t mind their logo on the bucket. Also, I found the Gamma Seal lids at Home Depot for around $6 or so. They didn’t have different colors (definitely white and maybe black), but considering that for 3 sets you would pay $24 for both the buckets and the lids, it’s a lot cheaper than what is up on Amazon right now!

    We are actually now using 5 gallon buckets with regular lids for gift “bags” for guys. They LOVE them because they are actually re-usable and part of a good gift. The set costs under $4 (which is what a bigger gift bag would cost anyway) and the whole fact that they can reuse it is awesome!

      Jen- Great tip! I found the buckets and updated the post! The lids were $65 to ship! So they end up being better from amazon unless you go to lowes you can buy them for $10.49 but you still have to ship. 🙁

  • If you’ll be storing food directly in the pail, be sure they’re food grade. :o) The big box places sell both.
