Although I haven't always been this way, I would consider myself a compulsive saver. I have a firm grasp on the concept of wants vs. needs, and do not rush out to buy every little (or big) thing that I want throughout the year. I, for the most part, get more pleasure out of saving, than I would get out of any "thing". Money in the bank to me is a secure, comfortable and happy future.
Enter Christmas. One day of the year when I don't have to choose between immediate and delayed gratification. When others buy me those things that I want.
Now don't get me wrong. The true meaning of Christmas is far more important to me. I wouldn't trade one minute with family for any one of those awesome gifts that I have received. But I won't be sending any of them back!
So without further ado, here is my Christmas Haul of 2011.
