So, I took dh shopping w/ me this past weekend and came home with a few stocking stuffers. Took him again today (we are both on "vacation" from work this week) and once again came home w/ only 1 stocking stuffer and 1 small gift. I told him I really wanted to concentrate on getting a lot of the shopping done this week because every year I am running around the week before Christmas trying to finish up and watching for the delivery trucks hoping my last minute items arrive on time. Anyhow, I realize it's not my lack of trying or having some money to spend....it's ME. I am constantly thinking I don't want to buy it yet because I can still get a better price if I wait a little longer. Though, I don't have anything to base that as a fact on.

I've done the same thing. Which has also lead me to miss some deals in hopes for a better deal.

?! I guess I'm the only person who buys then returns and re-purchases is necessary? I know not everyone has the luxury of, or likes using, CC's but I refuse to go out the week before Christmas for any gifts. If the prices is good then I'll get it.

My DH calls me the return queen. If I am not sure if it is the best price and time is an issue, I buy and then return if I have to.

I do the exact same thing! In fact, last night I purchased two dslr bundles (the Nikon from Walmart and the canon from SAMs) and am trying to decide which one to keep and which one to return.

Well not for the same reason but it is Dec 2 and I have bought 1 gift. I have not even THOUGHT about what to buy anyone else on my list :( I'm sooo not into shopping and I am going to be in trouble fast if I don't get going. I just cannot make myself get into it. The more pressed for time I get, the less I want to think about it. There are years I've started shopping in June - I don't know what my malfunction is! :( Can someone shop for me??
