Christmas Day 3

I'm finally jumping in and doing a post for MomDot's mega Christmas Giveaway. The first two I just felt like I needed to be home and by the time I'm there the rest of the day zips away from me and I'm too late. This one I can do at work though. :)

I have not started my Christmas shopping yet. I am a mega procrastinator with things like this and it drive me crazy! I hate it! Maybe I should start today? The past few years our gifts have been sporatic and small because we haven't had money for it. It drives me crazy. I absolutely love giving gifts. I'm pretty sure it's my love language and I kinda stink at it. I feel like I need money to give gifts, when if I am a good planner I can get creative and do it pretty cheap.

So this year, I plan to make a bunch of stuff, as well as purchase off of Etsy. {Oh how I love Etsy!} Unfortunately I can't share with you any plans, as pretty much everyone I know reads my blog. Well, maybe not everyone, but a bunch of people who shouldn't know what I'm getting them. We'll see if I make it to Christmas.

My other thing is I usually completely forget that I will probably get stuff too. I get so excited about giving things to other people and watching them open. I kinda like that though. I hope to teach my little man to put more into giving than receiving.

How about you? Have you started your Christmas shopping yet?

I plan to shop Esty this year too. There's so much wonderful stuff to be found there. I haven't really started shopping this year, I need to get to it.

Start shopping! Only 40 more days!

I love Etsy. Search for guinea pigs. Zygopsyche makes guinea pigs and rabbits that I just LOVE! I am thinking of getting them for my goddaughters.

I think I'm going to take Mo with me this year and let her get some presents for her siblings. It's time to really start thinking about the giving aspect.

Start today!! Look for sales..you can get ALOT of good stuff cheap. Its the best thing...look like you spent alot of money without actually breaking the bank at all! Good Luck!!

I'm the most frugal shopper ever. I even do it online so I don't waste the gas! HA! Here's My Day 3! Come sign Mr. Linky!

I think it's great that you are making stuff this year. I wish I could do that, I'm just not crafty, or maybe I am and just never tried! haha

Etsy is a great place to shop. Support the Little man instead of the big corporate businesses.
