Tempus Fugit or in other words, How can it almost be December?

There are so many expressions about time, two of which come to mind immediately this morning.

Time flies when you’re having fun.
Time flies when you’re older.

Does getting older therefore mean you are going to have way more fun?

For me, time has been flying this year, and while it’s been fun, I hate the thought that it means I’m that much older. Of course, growing older beats the alternative.

It seems that in the blink of an eye, the year is gone and December is almost here. I don’t know about you, but I’ve already started my Christmas shopping, scoping out sales so I can watch my pennies. Since it’s a day of old adages, take care of the pennies and the dollars will take care of themselves, right?

For me that means using coupons, scouring the circulars for my regular haunts, cashing in any rewards points that I have and trying to see if with all that combined, I can keep expenses to a minimum.

How about you? Do you feel as if the year has flown by? Have you started your holiday shopping and if so, do you have any hints on how to save a little cash during this season?

  1. I haven’t even seen May yet!!!
    Yes it does seem that the older I get the faster the year goes by. I just hope I’m not missing anything.

  2. I’m with ya on that one. I can’t believe it’s December in only on a couple of days. While I LOVE December because Christmas is my FAVE time of the year, it’s still come so quickly. It’s still in the mid-70s here during the day (I’m in AZ) so to me it still feels like it should be early October or something. LOL.
    I hope you had a great Thanksgiving, Caridad!! 🙂

  3. I like to start shopping in July. That way I know all my shopping is usually done by thanksgiving. I usually just need little stocking stuffers. I like putting my tree up the day before thanksgiving and enjoying the fact I have everything done when everyone else is out shopping on friday. We have had unusually great weather so all of my outdoor decorating is done. As far as tips on how to not spend alot,make a list and stick to it. Hope you enjoyed your Thanksgiving.—Rachel
