My Only Hurrah

The humbug is back - ended up having to call for addresses. Poo.

Well, it's over, no one can tell me online shopping is easy, nope. Each website has its own little rules and idiosyncrasies. It wouldn't be bad if they told you the rules to start with, you know? Even a bleep arrow on the page.

What to do first, second, third etc. would have been really nice. I was up until 2:00 a.m. last night, ready to tear my hair out. Then another three hours this evening. Let me tell you - I'm not finished, but I am so DONE. 

I spent so much more than I planned. When DH sees the bills, he's gonna go, "Whoa!" I am just happy that I managed to find the little clicky things to get the free shipping. I knew this would go against the grain (mine). The thing that didn't help was dragging it out too long to get the cheaper (ROFLMAO) gifts. Well, that's as far as I'm going with this HoHoHo thing. (I will, however, enjoy the raspberry jelly filled chocolates on Christmas Eve.)

  1. I have to give you E for effort. I'm a real scrooge. Money for my kids, no fun at all.

    1. For the most part - I'm frugal. I was kinda hoping that doing some of this stuff would bring out the fun part of the season. As you can see, it didn't do much ...

  2. Nope Christmas isn't fun. Maybe when your about two! And yes online shopping isn't easy. It's hard work and then the postage can be a killer. I'm sticking to my gift book. All through the year I buy what's on social and allocate it to someone and write it in my book. When Christmas comes around it's usually mostly done. Didn't do it this year and it reminded me to go back to the method. Good on you for trying thought xx

    1. I did good on my postage, one place had a once a year fee for shipping for $29.99 and I saved a couple hundred. Also bought from places with free shipping, so $29.99 was my only expense besides gifts. Yep, too much work, even if I didn't have to wrap and ship off myself.
