No christmas shopping this year... I'm right in the middle of moving home. The renting contract for my old place says that I've got to paint and redecorate the place when I move out, this kept me busy (together with my work) for the last 6-8 weeks. I have to get the place finished by Dec. 31st, or I'll have to pay rent for another month. This, plus the expenses of moving keeping me quite broke for the moment, stops me from any christmas related activity.

Got 98% my Christmas shopping done at least a week ago. Just wrapped up 30 gift packages (took today left). Even got my family cards ready. Just a few minor last minute things left. Later today, I gotta go to my mom's house and help my mom wrap gifts and make cookies (of course, I get to be an official taste tester of them!).
Don't dispair, there could be some good bargins today at many stores. Sometimes some items will not be available. Just remember this - If in doubt for a gift for a woman, get jewelry. For a guy, a gift card to Home Depot or a wallet. For teens, Music CD's or iPod stuff or MP3 players. Good luck in Crapchester.
