Are you an organized shopper?

Do you head out w/your list in hand having all the stores mapped out,or do you just pick out what catches your eye & go w/the flow? I personally have to have a list & some kind of game plan or else I would waaay overspend.

I don't do a list but I do have an idea of what I am going after, so that way in case I see something that I think they will like better I can get it. I also know what stores I am going to before I leave.

I am super organized. Stocking stuffers I don't really plan, just pick up cheap stuff, but the majority of my shopping is well planned and done early.Then, when Amazon does some crazy last minute deals, I end up doing some impulse buying then too.

I have a list of 3 stores in front of me, the items I'm planning on buying from each, and the totals before tax. Online shopping is great for this! As the budget allows, I'll start buying them. Then I have a list of a few items I still need to look for, probably in person, because I haven't been happy with what I've found yet.

I am no where near an organizer shopper, I take my time thinking and looking and trying to decide.

Sometimes I have a list but not all the time.  I'm a more of a want it,  can't affort it, do I need it, no I don't and put it back type of buyer.

I always come prepared with list and ads. I also compare prices online. Especially around the holidays there are some great deals if you look at the right prices like last year I got my middle son that he wanted usually prices 120 bux for 99 bux just checking out the sales.

Hi,

I like to think I'm organized, however I'm not as organize as I would like to be. 

I've done good so far this year when it comes to the boys.  I think I'm pretty much done with them.

I am some what of an organized shopper, I usually do sort through my papers and consult my master list, and then find who has what on sale cheapest and do i have any coupons I can use same gos for blackfriday, we figure out what we need and make a list. The only thing I dont really have a set list for is Stocking stuffers, I usually know what I want beacuse I get pretty much the same thing, like when i was little we always got a hershey kiss filled plastic candy cane, and m&ms tube with the m&m on the top, and I always get them gummy life savers, a toothbrush and matchbox cars and then whatever else I can find that is cute.
