    I wait for the week before Christmas to buy those gifts that I can't figure out. I hate shopping malls so I try to buy as many gifts online as I possibly can.

    The best time to shop for Christmas and other gifts is right after Christmas.....that's when you get supersales.   Lots of retailers have great sales on Fridays after Halloween and of course, some great bargains on Black Friday, the day after thanksgiving.

    I would have to agree with SteveoMc, Dec 26.

    But I also shop year round so when Christmas approaches I have very few things if any left to buy. Sales happen all year, so I just pick up a thing or two here and there to take advantage of the opportunity whenever it comes along.

    I never really understood the logic of waiting until late fall or one day before the actual holiday when stores are packed to start my shopping.

    I start and finish in Sept or Oct. I hate the Christmas rush, not finding what I need because it's sold out and the traffic is horrid! I am done for this year and am glad!

    I agree with SteveoMc. Two days after Christmas, when the bul of the returns are in, is when you find the best deals. So plan ahead, make next year's list before Christmas this year.
