Not Just a Mom link up- Shop The Holidays

Hello and happy Monday, friends! We had awesome sunshine and warm temps-- so unseasonal for this time of year in Canada but we will take it!! Today, on the Not Just a Mom linkup that I cohost with AdrienneLaurenAshley and Dara, we are talking a topic near and dear to my heart- shopping the holidays.

Here are a few of my favourite things I like to do:

1- I love Holiday shopping and I usually start in November... sometimes October if I see a really good deal. There are a couple sales I wait for to begin.... the Chapters-Indigo Friends and Family Sale that I get 30% for and the Sephora VIB Sale that gives me a 20%. This is a good way to start.

2- I've been mostly online these past few years with just a couple quick visits to the mall.  This year, I can't really imagine that I'll be at the mall at all too much. 

3- I love a good local market-- but again COVID. There are a few local businesses that I really want to support so I think I may going at an off-peak time.  These places have the best stocking stuffers. 

4- I rarely buy anything full price unless I really have to. Such good sales at this time of year. Black Friday from my couch is one of my favourite days of the year.

5- I try to wrap things up by early to mid-December that way I can really immerse myself in the magic of the season.

6- D and I usually go "shopping" in the mall for my present. I show him the types of things I like and he chooses from them after we separate... that way it's a bit of a surprise still. We then follow it up with an awesome dinner-- again not happening this year. 

7- After all the cleaning and decluttering this year, Christmas is going to be just a little simpler.... but filled with dog toys LOL. 

What are your tips for happy holiday shopping? Are plans different this year?
