What Are You Doing This Weekend?

There are so many things happening this weekend that I don't know where to go first.  I have short-listed all the events that are on my must-visit list.  This is going to be a very busy weekend...

1.  Manila International Book Fair ~ September 15-19, 2010.  This is an annual trek for us, and it would break our hearts to go against tradition by skipping this year.

2.  Hobbes and Landes Sale ~ September 16-18, 2010.  There is an urban legend going around that Legos go for upto 60% off during this annual sale. :)

3.  The Stork Exchange ~ September 18, 2010.  Here is the answer to all the baby items and other stuff that our kids have outgrown.  If you are interested to join this children's item swap, read the mechanics here.  It comes with a P299 entrance fee, but that is inclusive of food and drinks catered by M Cafe.  

4.  S&R Member's Treat ~ September 15-19, 2010.  I always look forward to S&R's sale! 

I got a foldable party buffet table at 50% off last year.  When it's not doing the party circuit, it doubles as my kids' study table so I can keep a sharp eye on them while I cook in the kitchen. :) This is the same place where
I got my super cheap bookshelf, also on sale.

I also stock up on liquid hand soap, body wash and shampoo.  My kids use the Ivory Body Wash, so I got several bottles at buy-one-take-one promo during the sale early this year.  They have just used up their supply so this is the perfect time to horde again. :)

People start coming in before the store opens; and the queues at the cashier are notorious, with people lining up for more than an hour to pay.

I was just thinking what a crazy week this is. Trying to prioritize so I don't go spend crazy as I tend to do in sales.

Yeah, I just might see you! What is Mommymundo? It doesn't say anything on your site yet...

I tend to overbuy during sale also, so i keep a "gift" cabinet in the attic to store the excess purchase. it comes in handy whenever we get invited to a party and i cannot be bothered to go to the mall, but more importantly, it is to keep it away from the eyes of the husband. hahaha!
