I started my serious Christmas shopping yesterday. I do everything on line and if you look around you can find some good bargains. I absolutely hate paying for shipping so that's always a good deal to me. Some places, like Bath and Body Works, offer that often if you spend at least $50, and that's easy to do there! Amazon has deals on no shipping items, too.
It's not that I'm lazy and don't want to go out and shop, it's that I hate shopping in general and the crowds make me crazy. I have no patience. And these days, I can barely get through grocery shopping when the pain in my back, hip and leg get the best of me. That's the most frustrating part.
