Shop early or later?

In your own humble opinion, who do you believe is a smarter shopper. One who shops for gifts months prior to Christmas or one who does the last minute shopping? I know that there are usually deals on the day before Christmas Day. Would you do your shopping early or go out and do it on crunch time? I believe I would definitely be one for going out and doing it earlier because I do not like to be in stores with a lot of people and most of the shops that we would be going to is in another county with busier traffic. So count on me to get your present a lot earlier. What would you do? I appreciate every and all responses to my discussions, but do read thoroughly before responding?

I think that a smarter shopper is a person who either does all the Christmas shopping early,or at least starts the shopping early,because that way they can get the gifts without dealing with the crowds,I myself would agree with you and say that I would definitely do the shopping early,because I can not stand being around crowds of people,and I have always been afraid of being crammed into places with big groups of people,I love you.

I always try to start in september if I can and try to get some of the big gifts out of the way. There will always be something that pops up last minute that I will have to get but at least I will have all the hard to get items out of the way.

I like that, September. When all of the kids are in school so the aisles aren't packed with people. I know that everyone forgets one thing or another, especially if you have a big family or group of friends. I appreciate the response, Have a great day!

I cant say that one is smarter than the other. I have had years where i ahve done the shopping early, and some last minute, and in both cases have gotten some great deals. My shopping depends on my finances so if i have extra money early in the yr, thats when i do it, if not then its Christmas Eve for me..lol

Oh well when it comest to the deals, they come around throughout the year. I suppose in a way I was referring more to the mass of people who go out! I live in a small town so I have to travel to get most of the holiday shopping done, so trust me when I say it's a relief to be back home! lol, I appreciate the response.

Doing shopping on sale days are very nice as you feel as if your not spending to much money on things that you may not even need in the first place. I appreciate your response to me and hope that you have a lovely day and evening as well!

My fiance hates large crowds as well, and even I do not enjoy them to terribly much. I appreciate your response and am glad that you are one of those who go out and do it early! I hope you are having a wonderful day here, and have a wonderful evening as well!
