    Yeah me!

    It's July. I have all my family Christmas presents bought. Christmas shopping was making me stressed around the holidays and not giving gifts is not an option. I found my solution. I decide by May what I want to buy for family and then start looking for the best sales and deals for the items. I ordered the last two gifts this morning at a great savings online. Now if the sewing gifts get done great, if not, they will become birthday presents.
    Got fabric?

    She who dies with the most fabric, didn't sew fast enough!

    I am so jealous. I always say I am going to shop early but never seem to get it done. One year I did buy a bunch of gifts early and ended up spending more than usual because I kept finding more stuff I thought someone would like. Plus I forgot who I already had something for. Need to be better organized I guess.

    That's why my kids and grand kids get o much...I start buying early and on sale..then forget what I buy and just buy more! Would be easier with a list but that would take the fun out of it!

    That's when I start mine. That way I can watch out for sales all thru the year & not have to fight the crowds around the holidays. The only problem is sometimes I put my "finds" up so good that I can't find them later... LOL!

    I used to have mine all done by the end of Sept for that same reason. Nowadays, I just don't feel obligated.
