Time to bruise the old credit card

ChristmasshoppingHave you started your Christmas shopping yet?  I have.  I actually have two presents sitting on my shelf, and I ordered another online yesterday.  And I bought a couple of the cutest little gift card boxes for a buck at Michael's the other day.

In the olden days, I had a LOT of people on my shopping list.  I used to love to go ply the malls and look at everything, and drive around and enjoyed the bustle of people, lights, music, and everything else that goes with the holidays.  These days ... not so much.  And I find myself shopping earlier and earlier each year just so I DON'T have to go to the mall and search for something I'm not going to find anyway.

The truth is, I'll probably order a few more things online and that'll be it.  Heck, three people on my list only want gift cards, and I can buy them at the grocery store.  (It seems rather silly, really, exchanging gift cards, doesn't it?  I prefer presents, and it's usually only Mr. L who actually buys me anything.)

Have you started your shopping?
