It’s been my goal for a lot of years to have my Christmas shopping completed by the first of February.
And I hit that goal once again this year.
This is a coup for myself and others really. Before I made the goal of February 1 for holiday shopping, I tended to stick to the Heating, Ventilation, plus A/C comfort of apartment plus do a bunch of last hour shopping. This was a disappointing idea on a number of levels. First, last hour shopping is insane. The crowds are the worst plus the selection isn’t much better. Plus, I end up not getting the presents people absolutely wanted for Christmas. It’s a lose, lose proposition. These nights, I can do much of my shopping from apartment while the gas gas furnace keeps myself and others toasty hot with all that Heating, Ventilation, plus A/C heating. Doing without all this holiday stress has absolutely made the holiday season so much more lovely. I always celebrate hitting my February 1 goal with 1 more quick shopping stop. The immense box hardware store is the location plus I’m usually the only 1 in there that doesn’t look busy out. I grab a case of Heating, Ventilation, plus A/C air filters plus head for self checkout. A case of Heating, Ventilation, plus A/C air filters is what I need for the holiday season because all of us burn so many candles during this period. All of that burnt candle wax ends up going right to the Heating, Ventilation, plus A/C return. That’s where the wax hits the air filter plus ends up just coating the thing. Without decreasing the air filter almost biweekly, the Heating, Ventilation, plus A/C device might get choked out.
