#1 Tootsie Pops
|While looking for a picture of Tootsie pops I found that you can buy different flavors of Tootsie Pops on Amazon! |
The above Wild Berry Flavors will be my next purchase!
Tootsie pops are not necessarily a new favorite of mine, but they are something that I haven't had in a long time. I am bringing them back now because I am getting serious about my weight loss. Why would I be bringing out candy when I am getting serious about weight loss?? Well for me, the tootsie pops really work when I am craving something sweet. It is sweet enough to curb my craving, takes me a long time to eat it so I am not turning to something else quickly after and at just 60 calories, I don't have to feel bad about the splurge! I have been keeping these in the cupboard and they have hit the spot for me on a few occasions lately! Including right before I started writing this post, which is probably why it made it to #1 :)
#2 Yankee Swap Gifts
I was doing some online shopping yesterday and found this awesome Yankee swap gift...
I just think this is a riot and paired with a bottle of wine would be the perfect swap gift for a fun crowd! And you can't beat the price of $9.95, making it my favorite Yankee Swap gift under $10! You can check it out at the Lakeside Collection by clicking here.
#3 Christmas Chair Covers
While shopping for the above Yankee swap gift, I found these adorable chair covers...
I could not resist these things! They will be the perfect touch to the chairs at our raised bar in the kitchen/living room! And at $5.95 for all four covers, I could not pass on them! The kids will love them...and so will I, if I am being totally honest! Check them out here.
Now some of you are reading this and thinking I am totally crazy, because I am talking about Christmas shopping and decorating and it is still only October, but I call myself prepared :)
I will be done Christmas shopping by Black Friday which gives me all of December to do the fun stuff, wrap, bake, socialize and just enjoy! I have done this the last few years and it makes December so much more relaxing and I don't have to shop when the stores are crazy mobbed! Except for Black Friday, but this has become such a fun tradition every year with my sister in law that I wouldn't miss it! After the initial rush of people, the stores empty out and we just do our thing, chat, have a coffee and shop till we drop...literally! But when I get home I have everything I need for the holiday season. I have my gift wrap, I stock up on tape, I have the last few gifts on my list and usually a few things for the house! You can't beat some of the deals!
So that's it for Favorites Under $10 for October! Next Month I will highlight some of my favorite Easter things...kidding, I am not that prepared!! Come back tomorrow for my meal plan, Wednesday is What I Ate Wednesday and Friday is How the Jeans Fit Friday - scale edition! You don't want to miss it!
