You can never strip mamas off their shopping duties. More often than not, shopaholic single women graduate to become shopaholic mamas. One perfect example is me! (Don’t ask how.) I haven’t done my Christmas shopping yet but I know I have to be more practical this year. Unlike many of the couples I know, my husband and I do not have 13th month pay and Christmas bonuses. I used to look forward to December because of such. My husband before even had up to 14th month pay. Oh how I’d love to receive an extra month pay! The only way we could receive such bonus is through some sort of miracle.
I need to be smart and practical because times are changing. Can one still be a shopaholic and save money? Yes, if you will choose what to buy and learn to be wise. You don’t need to splurge on Christmas gifts this year, you just have to be wise.
And so I suggest you go to bazaars such as the Mommy Mundo Christmas Bazaar because you will find great deals. I am a supporter of local products, especially by the mompreneurs (mom entrepreneurs), so I highly recommend this one.
I cringe on going to crowded malls during Christmas seasons but the Mommy Mundo Christmas Bazaar 2012 will be held at the Rockwell Tent so you know shopping will be more efficient and more comfy. (The AC inside the tent really works!)
I’m a regular goer of bazaars held at the Rockwell Tent because it’s near our place. I remember going to one Christmas bazaar there a few weeks after I gave birth. Obviously, I scored really great deals.
So who wants to go shopping with me, mommas?
“In all your ways acknowledge Him,
and He will make your paths straight.”
