Who here thinks I have lost my mind???????

I just went to take a few things back that my DD got for christmas....and I thought however much it came to I would spend the money back on her. WELL, is everyone aware that all the toys are WAY STINKING cheap!!! Like way cheaper than what there were 2 weeks ago. HOLY COW!!! So, here is where you may think Im nuts, I think next year Im going to do Christmas after christmas. Is that crazy????? Or am I crazy????

  • That's why I already started my shopping for next year! The girls got gift cards for Target for Christmas. We went online to use them the day after and I couldn't believe how cheap some of the stuff was. So after they were in bed I started for next year! I figure if they aren't into it by this time next year there are 4 nieces younger than my girls...someone is bound to like it!

  • Were they gifts from others? If not, I think they have to give you back what you paid for it when you bought it????? Sorry if this isn't much help!

  • ive thought of the same thing, either do you shopping for the next year immediately after christmas ends or do christmas gifts a day or late. isnt christmas suppose to be about tradition and family anyways, i think its become too much about spending money and who got what for who

  • If your kids are ok with waiting a few days or so I think it's FINE. A couple years ago, we didn't have money, right AT or immediately before Christmas Day , so we EXTENDED Christmas. I kept the tree up. kept the music going and although we had dinner and opened a few small presents on the day that year, the UPS man delivered my kids' presents in January. My kids were teens and pre-teens who know that Christmas is a whole season, not just the one day. They are also aware that there is no Santa Claus except us,so they were all fine with waiting, and we were able to get them AWESOME gifts that year. I am one person who doesn't think you're crazy, I think you're SMART!!

  • Girl, I had the most fun ever yesterday. I went to a local mall and a store was going out of business. They offered all you can carry for 10.00 or all you can stuff into a cart for 20.00! People were going crazy. It was sooo much fun. We bought tons of clothing to donate to the church. People were laughing and talking and having a good time.. no fighting, just plain having fun!
