Honestly, I'm trying to stock up on at least 3 months worth of everything I use consistently.
The holidays are not even a consideration this year.

What are "Malls"????
Way back, many moons ago, I vaguely remember these places called "Malls" where teenagers went to hang out, and Mall "security" guards went to pass away from obesity at The Corndog Factory.
Now they have these things called 'patio malls' or 'patio centers', or something like that. They come complete with their own SEAL teams, machine guns and armored personnel carriers. People shudder in fear as they walk outside in the rain and driving snow from store to store. But hey, there's always a Starbucks nearby to get your "woke" on.

I wrote an OP on this very subject and got naught but crickets.
Yea, the holidays as we used to know them are all but over due to many reasons. We cancelled Thanksgiving/Christmas 2 years ago and have no plans to ever re-up. Everything will be in short supply and delivery times are already extended.
Spend wisely and stock up on essentials rather than wasting money and/or credit on the holidays. There's nothing to celebrate anyway.

I’ve heard that Christmas trees and decorations will also be in short supply.
The War on Christmas finally turns hot.
As for gifts, it’s hard when little one’s have specific requests and we don’t want to let them down, LOL, the kids in our Family are now young adults and they’re getting good vitamins, fire extinguishers and emergency lanterns
