I’ve bought everything I intended to. Made sure that there are plenty of gifts for the kiddo and hubs, that the stockings will be full. I’ve even wrapped most of them.
Then I pile them up in the corner (or the closet or whatever) and suddenly that pile looks awfully small.
“OH NO!” I think “There isn’t enough.”
This is when I have to steel myself and take Douglas Adams advice:
Those gifts were enough yesterday-they will be enough on Christmas day. Avoid the crisis shopping! Just stop. . .
From personal experience I can tell you that whatever you buy now will be overkill. After the carnage of Christmas morning, you will thing-“Wow, this is too much stuff. I shouldn’t have bought extra.”
So save yourself the money, stress and effort. Don’t Panic.
