Anybody else going to be waiting outside the stores in the morning at 6:00?

I love after Christmas shopping! I love to find the bargains on paper, bows, cards, decorations, etc.

No way! I hate shopping the day after Christmas as much as I hate shopping on the day after Thanksgiving. But you have a GREAT time!

I won't be doing it this year, but it is a great day to shop. One year I went and got a bunch of pretty Christmas ornaments super cheap, and gave them out as gifts the following Christmas.

I'll be going, but not early. (I'm not a morning person.) I need to get new glass balls for my tree (mine are very old & it's starting to show) and a few gift bags for family we've yet to get together with for Christmas.

Not I. It's almost 8 AM now, morning after, and I'm still here
I'm in Miami and it's a nasty, rainy day. Yesterday was very windy and stormy. I'm just going to catch up on stuff at home and head out to the stores AFTER everybody else is done.

I am home from shopping.

I just bought 26 rolls of wrapping paper, and I am sure that my husband is going to melt down when he sees!

Not that I really want to though. Just getting up in this house. Hubby went to work early and the girls and I slept in. Kohls and Fry's both have a blender that I want, mine bit the dust. I'm being picky though, I want a BIG one for all those frozen drinks. Found a HUGE one at Fry's that was $179 before Christmas and at Kohl's found a nice stainless Kitchen Aid that holds 7 cups for $99 before Christmas. They are supposed to be having a big sale today till 1 and I got some $$$ for Christmas...... so a blender is on the list. That is of course AFTER we get ready and go take in one car for some warranty recall for the bluetooth connection. URGH!!!!!! I HATE going to the car place.

I spent approximately $300 on Christmas presents, all of it online shopping and mailed directly to my family. I have no intention of purchasing anything else!
There's nothing I want or need other than a major food shopping grocery excursion here soon.

I did that on Sunday. One of the great advantages of living where there are Blue Laws is that even if Sunday happens to be Christmas Eve you can still go grocery shopping without a crowd or traffic, as long as you go before 1:00.
