X-Mas coming

So christmas is just around the corner and shopping for it has started for some, and some haven't even started. LOL How many of us are looking forward to the busy malls and the stupid ppl coming out of the woodwork?? I know I'm not. Some ppl are just down right stupid when it comes to holidays. Fighting over grabing the last toy on the shelf for there hellun at home knowing they are going to break it with-in the first month anyways.

So how many of have our shopping done already and who still has to get more??

Most women always have it done early and just pick up a few last min things as we wait till Dec 24th to do it all. LOL

I learned from years of poverty to start early. I start in july. For example, last July sears had those small 20" 3000lb jacks and stands kits for < 25.00. I bought 2 and they will end up under someones' trees this year. Pep Boys puts Mechanix gloves on sale for under 10.00 and they make great stocking stuffers. I probably have 85 % done by Thanksgiving and then I look for the current got to have sh!^ in December

I've started! But not even close to being done. We went out yesterday to do something weekly errands...And let me tell you, the hysteria is ALREADY starting. Ya know the rude, ignorant, don't know how to drive, bitch and complain because the shelves aren't stockwed with what they need, getting irrate with the cashier because their register tape ran out because they were so busy she didn't have time to change it, fighting for the last cart, kind of people. I was seriously ready to bitch-slap someone!

WHICH is why I reminded myself that that is the reason WHY I do my Christmas shopping late at night at places that are open 24hrs. LOL
