I can't believe next week is already Thanksgiving! November has literally flown by. That means I need to get my holiday shopping done!
I try to start my holiday shopping before Thanksgiving to avoid long lines. This way, I can be prepared and organized with my holiday list. I hate standing in the holiday lines, so that is a benefit of shopping early. Also, I like to be prepared, so that is another benefit. It is also a great feeling to be done with shopping while everyone is scrambling last minute!
Some disadvantages are that I don't get all the good deals that are last minute holiday discounts.
