    I have found good light bulbs at our local Dollar Tree at times, perhaps they would have some suitable for your needs.

    Also, if you have a local Habitat for Humanity thrift store, some locations carry energy saver bulbs and sell them for very, very low prices! They limit the amount that can be purchased per customer, but a few months back I purchased three 4-packs of energy saver bulbs for $1 each!

    I love that you are saving things for Christmas. I need to start doing that!

  • Jen says:

    I had same issue with KidFresh item about a month ago when I was ibotta/cartwheeling a deal. I could’ve sworn price was $2.99, but rang up $3.99. I should’ve questioned it, but didn’t.
