A pillow never felt so good. As you lie in bed for a wintry snooze, the exhaustion settles in from a grueling year of intense holiday shopping. Heavy eyes and tired limbs seduce your senses to welcome sleep but tonight something is holding you back. Did you make a list and check it twice? Did you remember to buy the batteries? Who’s that tapping my shoulder? It’s time to face the music and reminisce about the follies of Christmas past.
Waiting for eyes to open, the Ghost of Holiday Shopping has chosen you for a trip down memory lane. First stop is Christmas 2012, when technique went out the window and thrifty shopping took a back seat.

Finding the perfect gift for all your loved ones can be exhausting. You make a list, check it twice and then make the trip to a number of stores gathering items to put under the tree. With holiday chores piling up it’s easy to forget the batteries.
The burden of a holiday to-do list has gotten the best of many a mom but not you – not this year. Forgetting the batteries is holiday faux pas number one. Imagine a household with no fresh batteries on Christmas morning. The chaos would be unbearable. You can either search the house and eventually “borrow” the remote batteries or bundle up and venture out into the cold weather and brave the holiday traffic.
Whether your late or early, holiday shopping can be tough when the traffic is bad and store parking lots are packed to the brim. No one wants to make a repeat trip, especially when the temperature outside is borderline freezing. Not to mention the stores are usually bolted shut and closed for the holidays. Avoid the holiday disaster and pick up the batteries the first go-round.
Holiday shopping requires a plan of attack and buying the batteries should be your first objective. Rayovac alkaline batteries are easily found at any major retailer and can power all the gizmos and gadgets you’d likely purchase. When you approach the checkout aisle - be stealthy and grab a pack to pair with your holiday gifts. Your family will thank you later.
