Timing is Everything



This morning I got an email from Deseret Book announcing a 75% off sale on their Christmas things. I browsed a little bit and ended up ordering three sets of really cute Nativity costumes for children. My theory was that I can use it for Primary and/or we can do a family Nativity pageant at Christmas since next year the kiddoes should all be able to participate.


Interestingly enough, as I went back this afternoon to get the link to pass on, the costumes are listed as 'out of stock'. You can still see them here but at the regular prices, and they can't be added to your cart. I must have been amazingly lucky this morning - they do say timing is everything!

I ended up paying around $35 + shipping total -- which is still far less than even one of the sets is priced at originally. I may have missed out on the big Target toy clearance yesterday (double drat, as Maya would say!) , but I lucked out at Deseret Book today.

Nice Deal! Those are so cute! I've been looking for nativity costumes for children all over, but I can't find a thing! I'll have to keep my eyes open, because the season is right around the corner.
