Planning for Christmas, catalog or online shopping has many advantages over the holiday mall scene.
No long lines. No sore feet. No staggering to the car, weighed down by parcels and shopping bags.
Shopping becomes a pleasure, conducted from a favorite chair. Make your choice, load your cart, sit back, and wait for the UPS man. Ahhhhh!
Still, it's possible to have too much of a good thing! Holiday promotions sweep in at the end of August, filling email inboxes--and disorganized shopping exacts a high price for convenience.
