Times are hard. I know I am thinking twice about my decisions before I part with my money. Especially when it comes to spending for Lolly. Will this be something she'll really use? Something she really wants? Or is it something I just think is cute, good buy, etc. but will one day soon be boxing up for Goodwill? I am thinking twice. I plan to be more thought out about what I purchase.
It makes me wonder, do we really need to start our Christmas shopping on Thanksgiving night? Will the retailers really be making more money? Or will they just be paying more overhead for the same amount of sales they would have made with the normal Black Friday openings?
Are you planning on spending more, the same, or less than last year on your Christmas shopping?
