and I have almost all of my Christmas shopping done! This is the first year I have successfully shopped ahead of time, and I'm super pleased with myself for these reasons:
1. by thinking about Christmas shopping earlier in the year, I was able to take advantage of some great deals on some great stuff.
2. by spreading out my shopping, I am not dropping an obscene amount of money all at once within a four- week time span in December.
3. by shopping online (and early) I have avoided the Holiday Mall Mayhem.
4. by planning ahead, I have nearly eliminated the stress that so often accompanies this time of year...and what's not to like about that?
