And the best part? Sandra says she’s saved a bucketload of money, explaining that all her Christmas gifts were bought on special.
She adds: ‘My rule of thumb is whatever I buy for this stockpile has to be 50% off or more.’
And it appears Sandra isn’t alone, with scores of other shoppers responding to Sandra’s post to say they share her love of early Christmas shopping.
‘I could’ve written this myself... it’s exactly what I do.... best thing is that you don’t have to go shopping much in December when the shopping centres are so busy it’s absolutely crazy!’ said one.
Added another: ‘Me too, nearly done all my Xmas shopping and at discounts too.’
Said a third: ‘I do this every year as well! I already have heaps stashed away for birthdays, and Christmas. And I’ve also managed to bank $200 worth of Woolworths rewards to cover our Xmas food 👏 Looking forward to a easy stress free Christmas. I love Christmas because I know I already have the bulk of it covered no stress!’
Said one more: ‘My collection is similar :) I also have an excel spreadsheet I use to track what I've put aside & for who & whether it's bday/xmas this yr or next & how much I’ve spent.’
WOAH. Guess it’s as good a time to start shopping, right?! And for more savvy shopping tips, make sure you're following Markdown Addicts Australia - click here for more!
