I AM DONE!!!!! Except for a few more things for the kids and H.

I was blessed to have Saturday all to myself, H and DS gone hunting, and DD with a friend. I left the house at 8:30 am, and returned at 4:30pm, and have it done!!!! It is such a great feeling, I haven't really enjoyed the time before Xmas for a few years because it is so harried. This year, I can chill a bit, and am so much more looking forward to it.

I am going to give myself this gift every year from now on.

Awesome!!!

I have to get 1 more small thing for my nephew and a few more stocking stuffers for dd.

Woohoo!

As much as I love to shop local, today I offer praise to Jeff Bezos and the Great Overlord, Amazon Dot Com. Because of His Greatness, I am ALMOST DONE! lol

Me, too!

I have to pick up a coffee card for my starving student goddaughter and I'm done.

I have a ways to go and I am contemplating taking a PTO day just so I can get it all done Working 50-60 hours a week makes doing anything else difficult

We are almost done too. 3 or 4 more things, stocking stuffers and that's about it . I wanted to be done by the 1st for the exact reason you mentioned. Life is busy as it is, and it doesn't get any less busy as the holidays approach. I hate stressing and running out to the mall. So I am almost there and can relax soon.

My Hanukkah shopping was done in October!!! To be fair, I had to give the gifts on Wednesday.... so I guess I kinda had to get done.

But we don't exchange tons of gifts either. Usually just a couple of nice things.

I am now almost done. I have one more thing to buy ds and then purchase a few stocking stuffers. A grandmother gave me a brand new book. The kind you record so the child has the book read to them. I have to find someone the kids dont know who can do the recording.

Then a gift for my childhood friend.

A small gift for dd's bff and ds' s friend of the last three years.

Teachers gifts.


This is the smallest christmas the kids will have had, but it seems to involve the most work

First of all- CONGRATS to all of you are done. I agree it is the best gift you can give yourself.

I had a hideous Oct/Nov that resulted in $1000s of unplanned costs so I am at the starting gate with the shopping.

Thoughts from SIers (mods in particular)- is it possible to share "awesome deals" on here or is that against the rules. A collective input on "did you see this deal" might help those of us still shopping out. And for those of us with a really tight budget it could be that much more helpful.

Thoughts?

YAY! I too am just about done - thank you COSTCO! Just need to get my nieces, mom, and in-laws out of the way and it's over!

There are deals everywhere - seriously, EVERYWHERE. I heard on the news that retailers are going to continue with the deep discounts through December.

It is ok to have a thread that shares which retailers have good deals. If you have your own store/online store, you are not able to post about it. Please follow the No Soliciting guidelines below.
