Today is the first day of December and this means that a lot of shoppers are now rushing into stores to find the best deal. This comes only once in a year and we cannot blame people why they seem to rush and take home loads of groceries in their carts and bags full of items for give aways. I have already planned the items that I needed to buy and tried so hard to squeeze the budget and buy only necessary things for the season. This Christmas, I only bought a set of Christmas balls and ribbons. We're using artificial christmas trees anyway and it's another advantage on my part that I only had to buy few items to redecorate. What I am planning to buy now are gifts for my family. You'll see no presents yet under the tree and my two daughters kept asking for Christmas shopping. Oh well, let's see if we can find some sale items in town.
