How early is too early for Christmas shopping? I don't think it's ever really too early! For example, if you happened to spot a bargain on boxing Day the year before and it was appropriate to keep the gift hidden/ put away until then.. Why not? I think you could potentially also keep your eye on bargaind the whole year, of you wanted to. I think most people tend to buy their gifts in bulk.
Are you a planner or a last minuter? Do you take advantage of Black Friday and Cyber Monday, even Boxing Day sales, to purchase your Xmas loot? Yes.. more of a last minute buyer! I'm lazy and wait for the best possible bargains. Having said that, I don't buy many gifts at Christmas..5-10. otherwise I put in for gifts with others.
Do the sales encourage you to buy? Yes, for sure.. But usually for myself! I don't buy many gifts for others online (where lots of good deals are) because they tend to be more expensive items. Cheaper, Smaller items and gift cards are just easier to buy instore. Buying instore means you can find some random super cheap markdownss, and I'm all about the deals. I find out about lots of them from the Ozbargain site! Reply
