I’ve never really been one for serious shopping, I know where I want to go to browse, Boots and River island, and everywhere else I just kind of go in, get what I need and then get out. So, you can see that christmas time isn’t my favourite to go into the shops. I like the whole festive atmosphere but the people who need 17 Elsa’s for various kids in their family really get on my nerves. People are so rude, so I’ve complied a list of how to get through the christmas shopping period without committing murder:
- Know where you’re going, what you need and where you’re going to eat (if you’re doing a day long trip), this means that you don’t spend time wandering around aimlessly, getting stressed out and you can potter around knowing where you’re going to go.
- Try not to go on a Saturday. This year I’m completely ignoring this advice but if you go on a Sunday or even better some time during the week it won’t be as busy and will be a much more leisurely experience.
- Don’t take a huge handbag. You will regret it when it keeps banging into people.
- If you’re buying a lot and have gone shopping in a car, make a half way trip to take the bags back so that by the end your bag and arms haven’t broken.
