Christmas shopping in September works best for me

By Joe Shouse

I admit that I do not enjoy Christmas shopping. Hearing all the commercials about the upcoming Black Friday sales that have turned into Thanksgiving Thursday sales – and I’m still not excited. I do not plan to cut short the family feast or set the alarm for the middle of the night in order to save a few dollars. I did that several years ago when I was younger and more energetic and I am not so sure I saved all that much. So today, a little wiser and still broke, I feel my rest is more important than a bargain.
