It's not guilt when you know you're saving someone else 40%+ off the retail price by buying it yourself. I'd hate to know I could have gotten it heavily discounted and then have someone buy it for me from my xmas list at retail! :)

I buy a lot for other people, but I definitely find plenty for myself too!

Always! whether it's something I've identified through the ads that I like, or a duplicate of something I planned on only buying for someone else that I decide I just can't pass up, I always end up with something. My very first Black Friday purchase was actually a beautiful deep blue short trench coat for well below retail price, which I still wear today! :)

Sometimes if we see something that we have been wanting/looking for and it's a great deal, we will. This year though, I am pretty sure I am going to pick up a few things at Belk for myself. There are some really great deals and I rarely buy clothing or shoes for myself. Sooooooo I may just splurge just a little. :)

Yes, I sure do! As a single Mom, who else is going to shop for me?  The kids will get little presents for me, but Xmas day is more about them than me.  Things that I need, or good deals on clothes. Sure, I buy.

oh yes, I always end up buying for myself or the household. It never fails! At least I'm getting good deals though.

Add another hoarder/obsessor of wrapping paper.  I have a ton and I don't even have a large family.  I only have to buy a handful of gifts every year but yet I continue to buy wrapping paper.  Last year, I gathered up some unopened rolls I had "stuck back" for goodness knows what and donated it to my hometown fire department for them to use during their Toys for Tots drive.


Add me to the list of wrapping paper issues! I LoVE wrapping paper and gift bags! My paper has match my tree theme! I only wrap unmatched paper on gifts that we will be delivering! I have just had a conversation about finding perfect paper for myself a gift with my husband! I love red glitter,velvety, embossed shiny papers!

I was thinking some more on this... I do, and should, buy for myself otherwise all I'll end up with is lottery tickets from DH. That's all he ever buys me as a "gift" anymore :(

If there are deals too good to pass up, I will buy for myself on BF.  Honestly, I cannot remember a year where I have not done so.

(spits out coffee...) I won on the truffle comment?!

Wow... This was completely unexpected. DS is going to be one happy boy come Christmas! He's working hard in school and has been uncomplaining as DD has gotten taekwondo gear, and private lessons, and classes... he really deserves it. Terms and conditions will apply, of course

As I said in my reply, thank you not just for this but for all you do to make GD what it is. If I had to say thanks by baking cookies I'd be doing so from now until well into the new year!
