Stealth Shopping

The best part about being perpetually sleep-deprived and neurotic is that sometimes I surprise myself. For example, I'm almost done with my Christmas shopping!

Now, how does that happen, you might be asking. That you can be almost done and not even realized you've started? First, I don't shop without a list. Since I've not done the list yet, I can't have started shopping. Second, I have four small children. Sleep-dep leads to short-term memory loss. Third, I live in the middle of shopping-nowhere and have resorted the past few years to intensive internet-shopping. Combined, these factors lead to the Perfect Shopping Storm!

Apparently, here's how it worked for me this year. When I ordered stuff with "free shipping", I occassionally piggy-backed another item. Tossed the extra-items in the "gift closet" and forgot all about them!

Imagine my shock today when I started making the lists (yes, there are multiple lists based on location-of-gift-opening) and discovered that I'm more than half-way done!!! Sure, its a big list so half-way still leaves me a little from the finish line. Still. Thats AMAZING!

Not to mention, a big part of the list thats left can be covered by "wish lists". Thank Goodness for "wish lists". I use them during the year to stockpile Christmas ideas. Especially Zooba.com. Now its really a matter of cruising the Zooba and Amazon lists, paying the item, and updating my lists.

*Sigh* I really enjoy updating a good list!

Oops, I've gotta get started on my Christmas shopping...

Last year by this time I was a good way toward finished. But somehow this year that just hasn't happened. Two months to go, and I haven't even begun...

I'm about half way done. I really like being done EARLY. Kinda funny, because in most things, I'd rather wait til the last minute then cram!
