What Type of Christmas Shopper Are You?

Do you shop all year round? Does your shopping begin at 4am on Black Friday? Or do you wait until December 20 to even start?

My husband and I just sat down together last week to go over our gift list. For some reason, we are 'fly by the seat of our pants' type people.

We spend about the same amount on each person on our list every year and we have money set aside, but as far as the shopping goes, we have a lot to do.

I did a little bit on Black Friday weekend and that was mostly in the comfort of my home, in front of my computer.

We'll be busy over the next week and a half, but we'll get it done. And next week I'll say to myself, "I really need to do more through out the year". But next December, I'll be in the same place, with less than two weeks to go and a lot of shopping to do.

What kind of Christmas shopper are you?

About the photo: That is not my home, I don't have a creative or decorative bone in my body. That display was at a local gift shop last year and I thought it was festive and cute.


  1. Well, obviously you know what kind of shopper I am if you just read my post! Haha! I love hitting up the after-Christmas (and this year, BEFORE-Christmas?!?!) sales to get cheap birthday and Christmas gifts. I also do a lot of shopping online because it's easier (since we only have one car) and I usually find the best deals online anyway. Merry Christmas and have fun shopping!

  2. I am a SSSSLLLOOOWWW shopper! It takes me forever to find what I want to give. My daughter sent me links to some gifts she wanted and they were already sold out:( Now I have to go out in this FRIGID weather:):) XO, Pinky

  3. Been reading for awhile, don't think I've ever commented.

    This year we started our budget and road to debt freedom - so we actually have money budgeted to spend! That allowed us to get our shopping done at the beginning of the month and it feels sooooo nice!

    I'm a knitter as well, and am nearly done with Christmas presents, which is a lot better than the Christmas Eve rush I was feeling last year!

  4. I am the worst! Just ordered The Wife's gift today need to pick up my brother's and my dad's over the next week or so lol
