I'm usually appalled when my mother asks for detailed Christmas lists for each member of our family in October. "Really?!" I want to scream, "I haven't even got the last stitches in the Halloween costumes, and you want Christmas lists?"

No, I haven't thanked my dear mother, but I did learn some interesting information about the best things to buy, and not to buy, in November.
