BJ’s Christmas Shopping Challenge

I got a great gift card in the mail a few days ago!  I was given a $100 gift card from BJ’s Wholesale Club to specifically purchase as many holiday gifts as possible for under $100.  Challenge excepted!

I had fun shopping with my friend Kristi from Moms Own Words!  We scoured the store and then made our selections.


First, I found this great set of cutting boards for my son Matthew.



I got this Anchor 3 piece canister set for my sister.



Do you ever buy yourself a gift for Christmas?  Now that I have a gas stove, I thought this Nordic Ware Reversible Grill Griddle would be fun to use!  It will be nice to grill indoors in the winter and the griddle side can be used for so many things!



I got these Lindor Assorted Chocolate Truffles for my brother and sister-in-law.  They’ll be hosting our Christmas Eve and Christmas Day dinner.  That deserves some delicious chocolates, don’t you think?



This paper towel holder will go to my Mom. 
She mentioned that she needed one on my last visit.



Total spent  $94.86


Not too shabby, right?

I’m very happy with my choices!


While I was there, I picked up a few other products.  Andrew is coming home from college this week, so I picked up his favorite UNO Rattlesnake Pasta from the freezer.  I was running low on bathroom cups so I bought these 3 oz. paper cups for our bathroom cup dispenser.  The Bertolli frozen soup is for those busy weeknights when I need a quick hearty meal.  The Wholly Guacamole is for me.  (I’ve been on a guacamole and chip kick lately!)  Finally, I picked up some fresh chicken breast deli meat for my sandwiches this week.

    You really found some great gifts Jane. I am dying to know how that griddle works on your new gas stove! That was fun. Glad we were able to make it despite the weather! ;)

    Great pick up of gifts for $100. You’re going to love the grill/griddle! I’ve had mine for about 20 years and love it! It’s great for pancakes, french toast and grilled cheese! Enjoy all of your goodies!
