I incredulously mentioned to my sister, Hilary who began checking items off her list in October - that I couldn't believe how picked over everything already was, and she replied, "That's because you waited until the last minute." I was actually feeling really good about starting my shopping on Dec. 6 to me, it was like tackling the task two years ahead of time.
