    Got sent home from work early today due to being in tears as i've got a throat and ear infection, i've mostly slept today but thought i'd check in and see how everyone else was.

    Also thank you to @Charlotteprice for wiping out my top 5 - I now own all the sets (fifth avenue fashions being the final one for 35sp :)) and just have individual items to get. I also need to add more sp as I only have 29sp then can start gifting others again, hopefully the blue button will be back

    @Bluessun I notice that you are going for the Brunch at the Old Mill set. But, since it isn't CYS eligible, it is an exception to our usual advice to list individual pieces in your wishlist. Getting these individual items gifted would not get you any closer to getting the three premium items that are only available by buying the set in its entirety.

    But, at 74% off, it is one of the better sales items on the Daily Deal when it comes around at Deal 948.

    It would also be appropriate with the ads gone AWOL to list the complete Brunch set at the bottom of your wishlist in case a generous gifter comes along. Not as likely in these lean times, but one never knows. Frankly, I'd have posted this as general advice then done it myself, but the points are simply not there right now. I miss the good old days and hope for their return in the near future.

    It is CYS eligible, at least for me the store page is showing decreasing simpoints to get it. And yes, DD is where I'm going to get it, DD948.

    Maby I should add, at this point I do have enough simpoints to get what I want and more, because I underestimated greatly how generous this community is, and hopefully will be in future too. That said, ads or no ads, reason I have been gifting and will be, because it is simply too much fun. I will have that fun untill my simpoints run out, and at my rate, it's gonna take few weeks :)

    Edit 17546554; Thank you @Jude525 for those gifts :)

    Edit 17546554.218; Top 5 is good, CYS eligible :)

    Edit 17546554.5998; Countdown has started!! 10 items left! Ooops.. 9 items :blush:

    @Bluessun Then I stand gladly corrected. The problem with owning the store is I don't always get a good read on what is and isn't because I have to sign out to look at the page and I don't think it always shows the complete information if you aren't signed in as a user. Now that it's come up, I think I've been in this situation before. I also now wish I'd bought those items for you, because I always prefer gifting things I really like myself and I use the Jars of Electric Fireflies all the time.

    Also, now that I look at my CYS for Free tab of the DD spreadsheet.. Voila, there is the Brunch set. Problem is I never actually used that tab myself and always forget that it is there. Actually, I can honestly say that I sincerely didn't even remember that tab being there when I just went to see if there was someplace in the spreadsheet to find that info. Even after the, what, 2 years or so that I've been an active part of this community I still get lost in all the info there is to keep track of.

    @Jude525 you mean Clustered Electric Firefly Jars you gifted me? Thank you again :) I have plans for this bunch of jars and those plans do not include anything flammable other than sims starting the fire anyway..

    I'm still quite a newbie in here, so your advice was not overlooked, thanks :)

    @lovedietdp4 welcome to the gifting directory :)

    Just wanted to point out that the boardwalk items are not available for individual purchase and that the only way to get those items is to buy the set (which comes up twice during the daily deal rotation and is cheapest/just under half-price at DD 694).

    Speaking of the Daily Deals, this thread will help you get the most out of your SP. It includes a detailed list of specials and customizable spreadsheets that can help you find out when a particular deal comes up for you.

    I also noticed that you've got a lot of big sets on your wishlist. While it's possible that someone will gift you an entire set, having smaller items from that set on your wishlist increases your chances of receiving a gift; a lot of us were working with farmed points and, with the ads gone, many of us don't have as many points to spare. I'm not saying that it won't happen, just that it's rarer these days than it was.

    Again, welcome aboard, and don't be shy if you have questions. :)

    I just want to apologize to anyone who received 1) multiple notifications or 2) a notification from me sending you something, but no gift. We all know how the store likes to operate from time to time. :lol:
