It's That Time of Year

It's that time of year again — not even Halloween yet, and our mailman has been stuffing our mailbox with catalogs just about every day for a week now.

I hate to think what it will be like between now and Christmas. Here are just a few of the ones I haven't thrown away yet ...

I am stacking them in the closet in our office until I'm ready to start thinking about Christmas shopping. But first, I'd like to get through Halloween (my least favorite holiday) and Thanksgiving (my second favorite, next to Christmas). Of course, I'm sure the shopping spirit will hit me before Thanksgiving, and by then, at the rate they are arriving, I will have quite a collection of catalogs to browse.

Last year, I did the majority of my shopping online (through Amazon), and it was wonderful! I hope to do as well this year.

How about you? Have you started thinking about Christmas shopping yet?

I wish we would celebrate each holiday before moving to the next one (like in the olden days)!
I've received one catalog with some items that may be Christmas gifts for our 'children'.

I love getting catalogues in the mail. And then sitting and going through each page with a pen and post it notes.

And, yes, the only redeeming thing about Halloween is that it comes in the fall! I am so glad when it's over!

Christmas is just beginning to creep into my mind. It would be nice to have the work done and be able to enjoy the season. That's my goal. I whole heartedly agree with you that shopping online is the way to go. Most places offer free shipping around Christmas. What more could you want?
