Home Depot: 75% Off Christmas Clearance

I know that Home Depot may not be a typical place for some of you to think of after-Christmas clearance sales but I was there today and they had their Christmas items 75% off!  If you are going to the Kid's Clinic tomorrow you might want to casually stroll by the Christmas section. =0)

I found a lot of Martha Stewart ornaments, wreaths and topiaries on clearance.  Plus, I picked myself up some SOLAR POWERED LED Christmas Lights.........I am a little excited about those if you can't tell!  The lights were reg. around $25 (I picked them up for around $6).  I figure that these light will eventually pay for themselves with what I save in electricity.

Also, if you have a military ID don't forget to take that with you to score 10% off (it even worked on the clearance Christmas lights that I picked up).

Home Depot Kid's Clinic: Make A Battery Organizer (1/1)

The Home Depot Kid's Clinic is this Saturday from 11am to 2pm (a special time due to the holiday).  The kiddos will be making battery organizers.  I have 3 kids......not sure that I need 3 battery organizers.  Anyone have an idea besides storing batteries for these organizers?

The Home Depot provides the projects FREE of charge and also provides the necessary equipment to get the job done. Each kid completing the project will receive a pin and certificate.  If it is your first time, you will also receive an orange apron to keep.

My kids love going to these clinics!  They always seem to have a sense of accomplishment when they are finished building their own projects. Plus, it is a great way to entertain them for FREE on a Saturday morning.(Projects are designed for kids 5 -12.)
