Holiday shopping! Doesn’t that phrase just send a shiver down your spine? You probably haven’t even begun to think about the holidays. You most likely haven’t even begun to make your shopping list, either. After all, you have plenty of time, right? I mean it’s practically still summer, isn’t it? You don’t need to add holiday shopping to your long list of important things to do this very minute, do you? No, after all, you have 70ish days until Thanksgiving; and, let’s see, about 100 shopping days left until Christmas. That’s plenty of….What? 100 days! Why that’s only 14 weeks! Ugh, you’re right! Holiday shopping just got moved to the top of the list, or at least somewhere near the top.
Yeah, it can seem as if those 100 shopping days is an eternity, but it really does go by so fast. Plus, when you take the time to think about holiday shopping in September, you avoid the last minute hustle and bustle and the crowds that come in late November and early December; and there are plenty of great deals to be had in September as stores begin to turn over their inventories in preparation for winter. Not only can you get wonderful deals on the outgoing summer and back-to-school items, but you can also get deals on last year’s holdovers that merchants have stored away during spring and summer but hope to be rid of before this winter’s apparel and wares arrive.
Even if you are not quite ready to bite the bullet and actually begin that annual ritual we call ‘holiday shopping’, it is a great idea to begin to put your list together. Perhaps you can call your daughter and make a note of this year’s clothing and shoe sizes for your grandchildren. They really do grow so fast, and those things are always needed and are very helpful gifts. While you’re at it, make a note of any special gift that she mentions that the kids are hoping to unwrap this year – especially if it is a ‘highly sought after’ treasure. You know from experience that those ‘hot ticket items’ are impossible to find during the official ‘holiday shopping season’ but they can be easily located in September – especially when purchased online.
