Any last minute shoppers today?

I can't believe the number of people who wait til today to do their shopping. I know some who do that on purpose! Not me- I'm all done, wrapped & ready to go. Do you shop last minute too? Or know someone who does? (Like Black Friday, I avoid all stores on 12/24! :p)

  • Not I. I am looking forward to having tamales and a drink tonight. Finished wrapping yesterday so I get to relax today. Yay me!

  • I am generally done by Halloween, and wrapped by Thanksgiving, this year I was a little behind because of my new full time job, but not to far off schedule. I would love to avoid the mall and all stores today, but I manage a little sewing machine store, so I'll be at the mall working!! I can hardly wait to get home tonight!! Really looking forward to January 3rd, all of the holiday chaos will be over, our store inventory will be done, and there should be a little lull!!

  • nope- just hoping the one last thing I'm waiting on comes today in the mail- it should have been here late last week

    * I also do not understand waiting this long to shop...I mean you have 360+ days to get it together for the next year!
    the stores are SO wiped out too...when I worked at Walmart it was mind boggling to me that people waited so long-and then got pissed because they couldn't find the candy or toys or whatever that they wanted!
