No one can possibly fault me for leaving my holiday shopping to the last minute. Between having to bake buy cookies for my son’s preschool bake off to getting the house ready for holiday guests, the whole concept of gift giving (and even receiving) completely slipped my mind. I firmly believe, however, that it is not only ok to shop in the eleventh hour, but that it is almost encouraged! Extended hours in retail land abound offering savings on top of savings if you buy just one more gift this holiday season. Am I wrong to deduce, then, that it might even pay to be so last minute?
