I detest shopping in crowded places. It is for that reason that I shop at nice stores and avoid the K-mart/Walmarts of the world. In our house, the shopping for presents is mostly done by the Boss Lady. While she dislikes shopping, she doesn't trust me to pick presents that are reasonably priced. This year she did most of her Christmas shopping on-line at Macy's. Apparently, the latter had a nice sale and she spent $600+ that would normally have cost her over $1,400. I found that impressive. I went yesterday and shopped at REI and AT&T. At the former I bought the Boss Lady her presents (she's the outdoor type) and the dogs their stocking stuffers. At AT&T, I bought our son an I-phone 6. It ended up costing me the Tax only. Apparently, they have a new family wireless plan that saves us over $45. So, the cost of the phone will be included in the monthly amount that we pay and still save us $$ from what we had been paying. I like that. He will be happy and after the very challenging semester that he had at college, it will be richly deserved. HOOAAA!!
