Christmas Shopping?!?

I’m playing along with Aly and Molly’s 12 Days of Christmas. You should too!


1. If you see something you want.... DO NOT WAIT. I make this epic mistake every. single. year. I keep telling myself I won’t but it doesn’t work out at all. Here’s how it goes... I see something that I think someone will love as a gift. Then, I’lI think to myself, “Wait, Stace, you might find something better!” I’ll leave the item behind. I'll go to other stores and look all around and NOT find something better. I’ll go back to the store to buy item A and it will be gone. Happens EVERY SINGLE time. Don’t follow in my footsteps.

2. Avoid Black Friday. Atleast... that is my advice. Boyfriend and I bought a computer on Black Friday a few years ago. We woke up at 5:00 am headed to Best Buy and waited and waited and waited. Ang got a really good deal on a computer.... but it made us tired and cranky. We probably could have gotten just a good deal oline shopping from home in our PJ’s. Speaking of PJ's.... I want these:

3. When you think you’re about to go crazy... get a Starbucks gingerbread latte. They work wonders.

4. Look for deals and know what you’re looking for.

5. Skip the mall and just RELAX! Enjoy the music and the decorations and Santa Claus. Afterall, it’s not all about the gifts! Look around and appreciate this warm and fuzzy time of year. You know it will go too fast!


  1. Oh my god...I want that Grinch shirt!

    (Good tips by the way) I never shop on Black Friday, I leave that to my Mom and Aunt.

  2. I try to stay away from Black Friday too!

  3. Love the part about starbucks, it always makes my day better :)

    Thanks for linking up!
