Have You Finished Your Christmas Shopping?

Are you the kind of person who waits until the last minute, or prefer to have everything checked off your list before Black Friday?

Have You Finished Your Christmas Shopping?

There tends to be the kind of people who get all their shopping done before the first holiday decoration is in sight, the kind of people who bust down the doors on Black Friday, and the people who stress just weeks – and sometimes days – before the big day.

Regardless of what kind of shopper you are, buying gifts for loved ones is certainly in style this season.

According to CNN, the National Retail Federation is predicting that retailers will see a 4.1 percent increase in holiday buying this season — a good bump from the 3.5 percent average for the last 10 years.

CNN Money also reported that 53 percent of consumers surveyed by Accenture said they would be shopping on Black Friday, up from 44 percent last year.

Were you one of those shoppers? Do you check off your list and already start shopping for next year? Or do you like to wait until the Christmas Eve sales to get even better bargains?

Fess up if you've got your shopping done or admit you're at your best when there's a looming deadline. Tell us in the comments.
