Christmas shopping

Christmas shopping. Some people love it, others despise it. Some get it all done on Black Friday, others wait until the last minute.

I'm in between, I usually don't wait until the last minute but I don't really get into Black Friday. It's a little too crazy for me but with 11 nieces and nephews, the shopping has to get done, one way or the other.

For the last few years, I've been on a mission to make things a little easier. This year, I've decided to go with a theme. I chose boardgames in an effort to get the kids (they range in age from 3 to 16) away from the television and tp interact with each other. Wow, what a mean Aunt Amy I am! :)

In my effort to make things easier, I'm wondering about deals available on the Internet. Maybe I'm a little behind the times but I've never really taken advantage of online shopping during the holidays.

How many of you take advantage of all the Internet deals? Where do you do a majority of your shopping, in stores or online? Should I be adding this to my repertoire of ways to find bargains?

By the way, I'm proud to say that I'm almost done with my shopping, and the first week of December is not even complete! And I'm almost done wrapping! Happy Shopping!
