Christmas Shopping

I’ve always prided myself on being a good shopper. By “a good shopper” I mean that I usually get everything on sale, if not clearance, and I delight in the game. It’s heartbreaking for me to miss a sale or not use a great coupon! Matt used to get a little embarrassed when I’d pull out a coupon every time we’d go out to eat and now he loves it! We eat out for half the price but the food tastes the same…if not better!

I only have a couple of gifts left to get…a couple for my nephews and stocking stuffers for Matt. The snow has kept me out of the malls. But the relentless storms and dangerous roads have to let up sooner or later and when they do…I’ll be back out finishing the race.

I love the feeling of thinking about a person and finding the perfect gift. Something to make them smile, cry, laugh out loud or wonder what I was thinking…I’ve given gifts that have brought about all sorts of reactions. Sometimes I hit the nail on the head and other times I miss it entirely. I love a challenge.

Shopping for a toddler is easy. Anything princess-y, pink, big sister or food related…she loves to cook! I’ll be sure and take pictures of Christmas morning. I can’t wait! I don’t usually sleep much the night before cause I get so excited! I’m just a kid a heart.

What’s your take on the shopping at Christmas? Love it? Hate it? Favorite time of the year?

LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE IT!!!!!!!!!!!!! It’s so much fun to get out there even if there’s big crowds!! AND I also never buy anything that’s not on sale/clearance…it just means you get to buy more!

Shopping —- arrghhhhhh—— not my favorite— especially if I have to either battle the snow or my toddlers—

I do like giving gifts though 😉

I absolutely love Christmas shopping. My sister and I have been shopping the day after Thanksgiving for 19 years. We are always prepared for grumpy shoppers so in turn we make it our goal to do good deeds for fellow shoppers that day. The only thing that could make my shopping better now would be to have some snow. We currently have a muddy Christmas season in Ohio.

I love your blog. I read it weekly.
