I tend to stay away from the crowds at stores. I get super anxious and exhausted and frankly, the deals aren't that impressive. I do most of my holiday shopping online. I stalk Amazon for deals and strike when the iron's hot. I bought the Croods for Emma for only $9! I also scored some CDs, Monster High dolls,etc. I also am a member of Prime (so worth it!) and have already received most of the items I have ordered!
Hurry and head over there and score some GREAT deals! Amazon has compiled a great list!
