It's Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas

Well maybe it doesn't feel like Christmas temperature wise, but it's starting to look like it in our gift closet. The other day we were informed of a great bargain that immediately resonated as a "good idea for Christmas gifts" to me. What normally would have cost around $130 before tax only cost us $25! All of our gift buying is complete, and that makes for a great feeling if I do say so myself.

Ok, I will admit, I did pick up a few of these goodies for myself. After all, it was a great bargain & to top it off...it's not knick-knack clutter items. That is another great thing about it.

Has anyone else begun their Christmas shopping yet? Now is as good a time as ever to get out there and start looking for those bargains and end of season sales. You never know what you will stumble upon until you start looking.

I don't start Christmas shopping until after my man's birthday which is in one week so I'm fast approaching. I'm gearing up! :)

I haven't started actually buying but I'm shopping around looking. I love doing Christmas shopping at this time of year and with all the sales!

You are so ahead of the game, but I wouldn't expect anything less from you. My Christmas shopping doesn't start until after Thanksgiving, and usually finished up around New Years! :) We often have Christmas with my dh's family, so all those gifts get bought first, with any remaining stragglers from my family getting picked out the week between the two holidays. And, yes, I am usually frantically running around, missing the joys of lights and twinkles, but I find a certain comfort in the sameness, rather than the INsaneness of it all. Go figure.
