Do you have a hard time getting started on your Christmas shopping?
It seems it gets worse every year for me. I go to the mall and walk aimlessly from store to store looking at things that I'd like to have (but don't need) instead of what I should purchase for someone else. I guess I need to make a list, which I usually do, and go from there.
I did buy a book (for me because it was $7.99 at Chapters) and a book for my grandson. And I walked through the mall looking and getting overwhelmed and wishing we had a big Home Sense store here instead of the smaller Winners with a small home decor department. If you live in a larger center with T J Maxx and Burlington and Big Lots etc. count yourself lucky.
I also got very tired walking on the hard floors in the mall even with a good comfortable pair of shoes on. Then my shoulders started hurting from carrying my purse. Oh my. I need to lighten it up for sure! I am having issues with my rotator cuff in the left shoulder and I believe my right one is also starting to wear. Too many years of walking a dog that loves to pull! I almost felt like getting a wheel chair at the entrance and paddling myself around. Cute picture eh?? Maybe I need to hire a personal shopper! Brilliant!
Are you one of those energetic organized people that starts their shopping in January? I can't do it. I always worry that it may be out of style or the person won't like it come December. My best time to shop is the week before the big day. Nothing like pressure to get er done.
I did find some pretty blue, silver and white placemats at Dollarama to give to ME! They'll go great with my snowflake dishes I use all winter. And I saw a sweet teapot with snowmen and snowflakes at Stokes but it stayed there. For now.
Guess I'll have to try another day. Anyone want to come with me and inspire me?
Have you started your Christmas shopping yet?
See you soon.
