Well I have started Christmas shopping as there was a segment on the radio the other day, that was saying there could be shortages this year due to problems in the supply chain. Now this is not the first time I heard this. "R" was telling me there was talk at her work that the staff who buy in all the Christmas stuff were concerned about delivery; despite them ordering everything in February for Christmas.
It doesn't help that there is such a tight window for retailers to sell things for Christmas. Saying that I am seeing email flooding in with adverts for all sorts of Christmas items. I also heard and was told, that getting deals and bargains will be also difficult.
The grandkids are all getting Lego in some shape or form (other than the baby) this year, and trying to find a deal on Lego is difficult. I ordered another lot from Chapters/Indigo, where I get Plum points. I ordered online, so I get Swagbucks and put it on my credit card, so get PC points. So all in all, I did pretty well with the order.
For the adults, I generally send out a group text telling them I will get them a gift card and where do they want it from. The reason I send out a group text, is so I know I will get a response from them all!! However, it then turns out to be a long winded affair, as my son thinks he's a comedian😏
Again this year, there will be very few Christmas cards sent out; postage is too expensive. A lot of people have emails, so would rather hear from them via that.
Have you heard about the shortages and have you started your Christmas shopping?
