I think it’s safe to say that those of us who love shopping are few and far between. I’m talking about those people who would shop 24/7, who are at the mall every chance they get, who brave the crowds on Black Friday to get that oh-so-sweet deal. I am not one of those people!
I can hear the “yeah right” from my family members now! LOL! I like to shop, but I don’t love to shop. I’m not freaky about needing to be the first in line for a big sale or being the first to have the newest gadget. I love getting a great deal because who doesn’t, but I’m not going to stand in line for 15 hours to get it. If it’s there when I get there, it was meant to be and if not, so be it. I also like to go right away in the morning and be home by noon or 1pm. I can remember shopping all day as a kid (because there were 4 kids that needed stuff and we weren’t leaving til we were all done!) but rarely do I do that anymore. I can spend a lot of time shopping online though! It’s great because I can browse my favorite stores without having to fight the crowds or walk from one end of the mall to the other!
Since the Christmas season is upon us and the retailers have been shoving Christmas at us since mid-October, I thought I’d get moving with my shopping. I have an excellent start I’m proud to report! It really happened by accident too 😉 I went to town last week to run errands and while I was there I thought I’d see what I could find. I found sales and deals and prices that I couldn’t say no too. They weren’t Black Friday deals, but they were good none the less. Speaking of Black Friday, did anyone venture out and get the deal of the year?! I had to work, but I did go to Best Buy in the afternoon and scored a great gift for my parents. It was about 1:15pm and it was busy, but not insane. I was impressed with the stock of items they still had, and the help they had available. I’ve only shopped on that day one other year and I went before work because Shopko had something I wanted. It was a little crazy, but I managed to get in and out and be to work on time!
Have you started Christmas shopping yet? Do you shop til you drop and get it all done in one day or do you spread it out? I am very happy that it’s not even December and I’m almost done with my shopping, but now I have to wrap it all! That’s where I procrastinate!
