What Kind of Shopper Are You?

Posted on November 23rd, by Amy in Modern Basics. 7 comments

When holiday shopping do you —

frequent the Black Friday sales? 

shop the week before Christmas?

make all your gifts handmade?


slowly gather gifts over the course of months?


I am kinda a collection of all these!  I always have the best intentions of starting early, making some and buying others as they are on sale.  But I usually end up the week before, with half my list yet to be completed or purchased.  If your inbox is anything like mine, then you’ve had an onslaught of emails this week with all the great deals starting on Friday.  I just want to highlight this one for you –

This amazing sale over at Martingale for the whole weekend!  Even Modern Basics will be 50% off!  Get the books you’ve been eyeing, and stock up on a few great gifts too! Everything on the site will be 50% off, including the great calendar I posted about last week.

Happy Shopping ~ Amy

    I’ve worked out no matter how hard I try I am a Christmas eve shopper, so now I just go with it and have faith that the perfect gift for each person will be available for them in the shop just waiting for me to pick it up.
    I don’t quite get the black friday thing but thats more than likely because I’m in the UK.

    I try to shop all year long, if I see something that I know will be a great gift, I get it. But I also end up shopping later too. Never do Black Friday-it would drive me crazy. I do a lot of shopping online now. Some things I make, but that depends on who, what and how much time I have.

    Happy Thanksgiving from your northern neighbours! :-)

    We always stare, fascinated, at the Black Friday commercials and wonder exactly what it’s all about… We tend to go crazy during Boxing Week, but most of the time, I stay home with Christmas butter tarts and a jigsaw puzzle rather than face the crowds. Online sales, however…. Hmmmmm…. might have to check them out. Thanks!

    I listen for hints from my family all year and try to keep a running list in Omnifocus on my iPhone. It’s a lifesaver when it gets to be this time of year and I’m ready to shop! I do a lot of online shopping, but I have sewn reusable fabric gift bags that we can use year after year instead of throwing away a bunch of paper wrapping.
