    So are you going to plunge in to the net and buy most of your holiday gifts online??? Or are you going to stick to brick-and-mortar?

    I figure I'll still buy most of my gifts at a store - saves on shipping. I don't think I could buy enough to get savings on multiple packages.

    My family stopped exchanging gifts a long time ago. It's a big pain in the ass to do the whole gift giving thing and quite franky, we are all adults and if we want something, we just buy it. Christmas presents for adults is silly. Christmas presents are for kids (and as far as I can tell most kids these days deserve gifs you can probably purchase from thecoalman; I'm sure he get's approached for this each year). I do plan on getting some Fancy Feast cat food for one of my cats, and a cardboard box for the other cat.

    I don't even buy chritmas presents for kids, I do all my shopping at the bank. I might buy something for my Mom and Dad but that's about it.

    As for the coal yes I get a few online requests and have considered selling items like that. I'm not set up for online payments yet. Plus I don't know if it's worth it, I'm pretty busy at this time of the year making the real money and I don't have time to messing around with souveneir gifts.

    I did send a 60Lb piece to a sculptor once, never got back to me so I guess it didn't work out.

    Might be worth checking on eBay to see if it's already being done.

  9. I can't buy online (need credit card and bank won't give one to unemployed/student people). So it will be in local store

    Right now there is no such thing as a truly secure server and it's possible there never will be. This isn't technophobia talking but techno-savvy. The FBI has issued countless warnings about hacked credit card accounts by foreign hackers. I have only ever bought one item online, and I used a gift card from WalMart on their website to order an item that was out of stock at my local store.

    That is what I recommend for people doing online shopping. Use cash to buy a gift card and then use the gift card online. Using a credit card online is unneccessary, and you have to give the stores that have the gift card payment option some major props. The idea was brilliant!

    My holiday spending is almost evenly split between online and brick and mortar. The only difference this year from last is that our christmas eve dinner has been bought online instead of going to the grocery store.
