Christmas Shopping

I hate it. With a passion. You’d think it would be as easy as going online, clicking a few times and having everything shipped to us. It never is though.

This year we’ve made a concerted effort to get our Christmas shopping done early.  We spent a couple hours this evening getting some stuff that we couldn’t find online for a better price. It also helps that we’re cutting back on Christmas across the board this year. We’re not the only ones, it seems. Get Rich Slowly linked to research that suggests average spending will drop 50% this year.  In the end, I don’t feel like our Christmas will be any less fun this year with fewer gifts, and it feels good not having a large number of purchases hanging over my head.
