Do you feel upset because you have to wait close to Christmas for shopping?

I don't get to get all My shopping done until the 22nd. 3 days before Christmas. I wish I could do it this check but I can't.

  • Not at all. I HATE shopping, so I always shop last minute.

  • That would not work for us. DD3 has her birthday on 12/22.

  • We do that every year. Dh's last check before the holiday. It always sucks. Not because the things I want to buy are gone, but it takes all the joy out of the holiday. I hate crowds and would prefer to shop online, but you have to do that in advance. You can't enjoy shopping or even "shop around" at all because there is no time. Also that means that wrapping waits till the last second too. Its so rushed.

    I can't wait until my kids are grown. I may not even do Christmas then.

  • Maybe you can go to one of those check places?

    Just this once.

    Be careful and don't ever do it again!
