$3 SuperStar Barbie! March 11, 2010

Everyone wants to be a SuperStar. Now you can pretend you’re one when you own SuperStar Barbie for just $3! Yes, you read that right. Just three smackeroos! That’s less than the cost of a grande non-fat no-foam latte at Starbucks…

Through March 13, 2010, SuperStar Barbie is on sale for the original Barbie price ($3) from 1959. I’ll hop on that band wagon! Who knows, my 2 year old may become a Barbie fanatic. And, if not, I know several adults who’d like this as a gift anyhow!

This SuperStar Barbie is a re-release of the original SuperStar Barbie that came out in 1977. Now she’s out on the town with a shorter hemline and lots of sparkle. She even has her own bling — a “diamond” ring!

You can find SuperStar Barbie in stores and online. Here she is for just $3 at a couple of online spots:

Toys-R-Us

Target (UPDATE: Target online is sold out!)

FYI, when I priced SuperStar Barbie online at Target, the shipping was close to $6 to my house. Here’s my suggestion — buy a bunch! Get together with your office crew or neighborhood friends and buy several in one order while they last! Who wants to go from store to store? And, ordering as a group saves gas money, time, etc. Now, that’s Being Resourceful!

$24.99 & FREE SHIPPING on Little People Nativity Set December 1, 2009

If you have any little people in your life, you know they like, well, Little People. Right now, Toys R Us  has Fisher-Price’s Little People Nativity Scene on sale for just $24.99 with FREE SHIPPING! (If you shopped on Amazon, you’d find it for $49.99… )

This adorable set is great for kids of any age, but especially the toddler & preschool crowd. Perfect to keep the kiddos entertained while you’re decorating your house, addressing your holiday cards, or secretly watching them from around the corner as they make the figurines have the most hilarious of conversations.

At this price, I’d recommend buying a few sets and keeping them on hand for future gifts.
