Stocking Stuffers from North East Mall

When I think about stocking stuffers for Christmas I want to make it simple and memorable. We really enjoy picking out some great gifts to stuff in our kids stockings can be tricky. But when I was contacted to go to North East Mall in Hurst,TX I knew I had to think of some nice stuffers that my kids would like. I was gifted $100 to spend at three retail stores in the mall and I knew I would find something from all three.

We started our trip to the Crazy 8 store. This was my first time going to crazy 8 and I can say that I will be going back. The whole store was under $12 bucks and I only decided to spend the gifts for my youngest daughter. I picked our several items here, like some awesome silver metallic shoes, a journel, hair bow, tutu skirt and a sweater. Everything was under $12 bucks and that's what I like. Good deals especially for a mom on budget during the holiday season, if you visit the crazy 8 store online the deals are going on there $12 dollars and under.

What I like about North East Mall is that the kid stores are near each other. It made it super easy to go to the stores with the three kids in tow and make in and out of the shops. Across the way was the Gymboree store. I was able to get a few clothes and super cute socks here. The whole store was 50% off and that's a great deal for Gymboree. I got the long sleeve shark tee with lights, khaki pants , holiday socks and the bubbles. Bubbles really are great stocking stuffers for children. My kids insisted that we use the bubbles right away. 

Next stop can't be complete without a trip to the Gap kids. The gap also had a great deal of the store 50% off everything. When the Gap has sweet deals this is exactly the bet time to shop. I was super impressed with the Star Wars collection of kid clothes and goodies. My kids are all obsessed with everything Star Wars and the selection here was very good and especially with the 50% off made is that more sweeter. Here we got a Star Wars long sleeve shirt, grey fleece joggers and watches. Watches are really good for stocking stuffers too.

I hope that you found some ideas on what to add to your stocking stuffers and gifts under your tree. As a mom of three I was able to use $100 dollars to shop at the North East Mall and get something special for every child. And it did help to go to crazy 8, Gymboree, and Gap kids to find awesome deals with great sale prices.

IKEA in Grand Prairie Opening Date Giveaways

The newest IKEA in the Grand Prairie is opening it's doors on December 13th. But the fun will begin this Saturday at the Klyde Warren park and continue throughout the week ahead. I can't wait for all the new growth that is happening in Grand Prairie and especially having an IKEA so close to me now. 

I was able to get a sneak peek into the new store and all the new upgrades and changes that has been made to make your experience here that more special. You will first notice that the new room installations will resemble neighborhoods and making it feel that more cozy. You will notice that the rooms will feature new windows with LED lights. Those new bright lights makes the rooms look brighter and more inviting.

The new one story store is special to DFW because the Frisco location in two-story. But with the store only being one level makes it nice and especially easy to navigate the store with the short cuts we know all to well. This IKEA store in Grand Prairie is a great addition to the city and everything that you like in IKEA and the catalog you will find here, but with some sweet shopping experience here.
