Do you like to buy presents ahead of time or right when you need to give them?
I use to like to but presents right when I needed to give them so I could have a particular person in mind while I was shopping. As time has gone on, I have found that I like to buy some presents ahead of time because I do not always have the time to shop when I need something. I like to keep lots of general things around so that I have a choice when I pick a gift from the things that I have on hand. I also find that the gift stash is convenient when trying to keep the cost down when buying gifts for my children to take to their friends' birthday parties. When they do not go to the store and pick out something, I can better control how much is spent on the gift.
