    Again, wasn't criticizing. It's vintage halford, but just found it very weird.

    almost done my shopping. Been an early bird shopper for years now, really enjoy the mall experience these days oddly enough too, not much for interwebz shopping

    This year we are only doing stockings and a handful of gifts for the kids. We rented a house in Freeport (ME) and extended family will cycle in and out. Might be cheaper this way.

    I'm about halfway through.

    Not as much fun buying stuff as it was when the kids were small. :(

    Haven't started and have heard my roommate brag about already being done multiple times this week.

    As my mom has always said, "I work best under pressure" :laugh:

    Thanks to online shopping, I'm doneish - the earliest I've ever finished. However, with finishing so early, I feel like I still need to keep buying and buying even though I've purchased everything I intended to.

    I say this to my wife every year: Not one of us can remember what 90% of the stuff was you went overboard buying last year, it's the 10% that counts...

    It was hellacious doing the holiday shopping.
    The Bride sent me an Amazon wish list.

    I had to press a single button.

    Well got the CPAP.
    Tonight will be night 1.

    Blue Cross was willing to pay for ResMed Airsense. 10

    And a Philips Respironics DreaWear under the nose mask.
    To start. I may be too claustrophobic for full face.

    They wouldn’t pay for a clean machine. But the therapist said if I have succes over the next month I’ll have this licked and should invest in the clean machine.

    Every Xmas my wife and I buy one big present between us that we'll both use and enjoy. This year we bought ourselves a new TV. We also buy each other a small suprise but it can't cost more than 20euro.

    At the risk of sounding completely and over the top cheesy the real gift is just having each other.

    Yeah. We buy a few small things for each other. Truth is we dont need anything and when we do we just get it.

    So we’d rather take the money and do weekend road trips.
    Buy experiences instead of stuff.
