I make Christmas shopping my personal challenge to get everyone I know name brand everything but for the lowest price possible. I use coupons at every single store, to the point that I won't even go in if I don't have a trusty "coup" in my hand. While this may seem extreme, between the hubs and I, we buy holiday gifts for a total of about 28 people. That is extreme! On top of that, I always make doggie gift bags for our furry friends. It can be a hectic time of year to say the least...
But not this year! I have outlined a list of the things I am going to do to make this shopping experience as quick and painless as possible.
1. NOT shopping on black friday. There is nothing that is worth waiting in line hours for and chances are it will be cheaper again right before Christmas anyway.
2. Doing all children's gifts the same so that they are cohesive and easy to put together. Last year we did movie baskets for each of the kids and this year we will be doing the same as they went over so well! They looked a little like this :

3. For everyone else I plan on shopping with a coupon or on Amazon using my prime free two-day shipping! That will be hard to beat as amazon usually has the lowest prices and with free shipping I won't even have to leave my house!
So that is my game plan...I am hoping that this works. With 25 people left to shop for, I am going to do my best to get moving!
