When should I finish my Christmas shopping? Originally my goal was to have everything done by the end of July when we're traveling to MI (instead of having to ship everything closer to the holidays). I've probably got about a third of it done but don't know if I should keep plugging along or hold out until closer to the holidays for better deals??? I could always save on shipping and "hold off" on sending gifts up until January when family comes down to visit (I would send the gifts back with them) - which is probably what they'll do with our gifts (not a big deal on either end!). So, do you think I'll get good deals now - just finish or should I wait and either ship it up, hold it until January or have stuff shipped to DMIL's house if I order on line?? I'm still going to be shopping because we'll have family and friends here to finish up for and I'll still do Black Friday because I love it....this is just the majority of our shopping - almost 3/4 honestly. TIA for any suggestions!!!
