My tips to make shopping easier

That's it.  It's officially less than six weeks until Christmas. I've still got nearly everything to buy. Yes, I'm busy and yes, I do tend to leave things to the last minute.  But the reality is that shopping with my kids and for my kids is difficult.  Surely even the happiest of shoppers have some sort of dread about the idea of dragging kids and family members around ever increasingly busy venues, in the run up to the happiest day of the year? No pressure there then.

  1. I love a good online sale!! #EatSleepBlogRT

  2. Online shopping makes everything easier. Crowds are so overwhelming. I went to a store the other day and they had a sale, but it was so overwhelming I could feel my anxiety getting on top of me. I felt hot and closed in it was horrible. Love your tips #eatsleepblogRT

  3. Some fantastic tips here. I find shopping online so much easier! We missed out on the light switch on this year but it was just too much so we watched the fireworks from our living room! #MarvMondays

  4. Online shopping ALL the way. I have it all planned before I start to 'shop' and then I search for the cheapest deal. 123pricecheck is a brilliant site!
    I've finally started and with having my little ones birthday the week before Christmas it's important to be slightly organised. I reserved a load of stuff last night and hubs is off to collect most of it tonight. That will be little mans birthday and Christmas pretty much sorted. Just everyone else's to go. I really couldn't do it without online. I hate going shopping. Far too stressful! #marvmondays

  5. I online shop as much as I can too. #marvmondays

  6. I online shop as much as I can too. #marvmondays

  7. YES! To all of your tips! I'm a firm believer in shopping online as much as I can, as I hate battling the hoards of people at the stores - too stressful. Thanks for sharing!

  8. The internet is my lifesaver. I don't know how parents coped before it. #marvmondays

  9. I've done all my shopping online this year, and either had it delivered or click and collected. I'm also planning on doing the food shop online for the first time this year, and already my Christmas is a lot less stressful. One trip to a very large, busy shopping centre with the husband and baby in tow has been enough for me this year! #MarvMondays

  10. Its all about the online shopping here - I am hoping to do it all online this year! #Eatsleepblogrt
