My After-Christmas Wish List, Installment 1

My Christmas present from the hubs is already under the tree (I have NO IDEA what it is, by the way), but that's not stopping me from making this Wish List. An after-Christmas Wish List, to be exact. I am all about not paying full price so hopefully I can snatch them on a good deal later on.

1. This Winter Wren Tea Set from Anthro is too cute for words. I saw it at the mall this weekend and wanted to bring it home. The price tag scared me -$98 for this five-piece set. It's oh-so-adorable, though. Perfect for tea drinkers. Anthro doesn't have the best sales, but maybe I will get lucky. I will keep my eyes peeled.

2. I don't need measuring spoons. The set I have works just fine and I haven't had any disastrous cooking mishaps from using it. I do believe, however, that these darling spoons with little birdies will bring a smile to my face whenever I use them! They are Baker's Bliss Measuring Spoons. Again, from Anthro. Priced at $18.

3. I already have a fleece jacket from LL Bean, but unfortunately, it's in a color that I don't love. I got it a couple of years ago on-sale. It is also a bit too big. I would like the exact same fleece - just in a different color and one size smaller, please. Wind Challenger Fleece Jacket, $69.

4. I think I have been coveting this Mango Body Butter from The Body Shop for at least 3 years now. But I just can't justify the purchase because I still have several unopened bottles of lotion in my stash. Some in mango scent, too. Maybe if it gets cheap cheap (the magic number is $5), I will finally buy it once and for all. On sale currently - $7 for 1.7 oz, $14 for 6.9 oz.

5. I have always been fascinated with crock pots. I like the idea of throwing stuff in one pot in the morning and coming home to a hot meal after work. What a concept! But, how much electricity does it suck up if left on for 8 hours a day? I don't know, but I imagine a decent amount. So even though it is on my after-Christmas Wish List, I don't think I will ever get it (unless I can get it for, say, under $15). Crock-Pot 6 Quart Embossed Scallop Slow Cooker RS, $54.99.

Do you have an after-Christmas Wish List? What's on the List?

    Hmmm...I'm sensing a lack of subtlety here...

    Don't get your hopes up baby. =]

    Alright, I'll say it again, get rid of this new commenting system. It's so annoying, so many steps to do the same thing that used to only take one simple click! Crazy...
