Shopping Season

Has anybody started their christmas shopping yet? I got an email about the Kohls and Target ad that was leaked out and it got me thinking that I should start planning and start shopping for christmas. The Kohls had some good deals on clothing which I might have to pick up for myself! haha Not really Impressed with the Target ad though, no real big deals, nothing for me to get up at 5 AM for.

We start the day after Christmas....I have 3 grown sons, 2 d-i-l's, a future d-i-l, two grandsons and another on the way...for some forgotten reason, hubby and I give each one 10 presents each, so that's a LOT of shopping. Many of the gifts are small - a box of Little Debbie Cakes or a pair of funny socks or a little candle....but since we shop throughout the year, it really isn't as overwhelming as you would think. The kids just like the fun of unwrapping a lot of gifts. Quantity over quality! haha

Wow! Thats quite the stash! I only have about 5 people that I have to shop for which is nice and easy but they all seem to have everything they need, so Im always at a loss at what to get them. It seems like every year I end up making their favorite cookies and then getting them their favorite DVD or another sweater.

I'm cheap so I don't do gifts. I just give cash to the younger members of the family for X'mas. It's easy and hassle free. Wife likes cash too, and nothing else. I like to keep my life simple.

I'm getting catalogs from places that sell clothes to real skinny and tall people. I just look at them and laugh!
