Christmas shopping made easy

Like it or not, the Christmas shopping season is upon us.  Black Friday Sale ads are everywhere, along with all the protests about the sales that start before Black Friday.  I've never been one to brave the crowds for the chance I might get a good deal - mostly because I'm not organized enough to know what I need to buy yet.  I'm a last-minute shopper - I go on a shopping spree just a week or two before the holiday.  That used to work pretty well, but now that the kids are a little more specific in what they want, and more likely to want the "hot" toys that sell out, so I have to try to get started sooner.  This year, maybe I will cover all my Christmas shopping with gift cards, since Kroger has this awesome offer of 4x the Kroger fuel points when you buy gift cards.  I love Kroger fuel points - the last time I used my card, I got $0.50 off per gallon!  That's a huge help this time of year, with all the traveling to see family.  Check out the offer here -
