Holiday Shopping Takes Off!

Sparkling Christmas trees set the mood for shopping.

For the first time in years, I am having a stress free shopping experience. In previous years we went from shop to shop looking for the perfect gift for each of the 20 to 30 people on our gift giving list. This year, we divided our shopping list into “physical store” and “internet” columns, with the “internet” column being our focus. Doing this cut our real life shopping time by more than half. We’ll save time by doing most of the shopping at home. Jack will stop by stores during his evening commute, but he will have phoned ahead to have his choices waiting. All he’ll need to do is pay and pick up! This also means I get to sit in front of the screen and compare, to my heart’s content, anytime I feel like it.

We look like a small family, but once the uncles, aunts, cousins, and grands are added, 30 is a conservative number! My favorite shopping is for Jack’s teenaged nieces, so I have spent time at the Simply Be website. The company carries an impressive range of sizes, and I was surprised to find clothing that even I can wear. If I decide to splurge, I’ll look through Joe Brown’s to find something special for the eldest niece. By the way, Simply Be has great discounts in their outlet pages!

So, I’m off to choose some trendy sweaters for myself and my sister-in-law. How will you save time, and money, while holiday shopping?
