Oh I have already started. I actually picked out a beautiful Brighton Belt at a store at the Mall of Georgia and now I am home I instantly regret not getting it. So I have crazily searched only to find on on Ebay that is actually cheaper!! It would be mine but I don't use Paypal. Does that make me behind the times? I read it is the safest but it does take a while to set up. I have purchased things thru pretty secure sites like Amazon (I am hoping) I feel I am ok.
I do think shopping online is pretty safe for the most part but I don't do a lot of it . Only if it is something can't find anywhere else or I need it shipped elsewhere. Still I hate the horror stories of identity theft and well I don't have a lot of money to take. I keep those accounts very low and watch them like a hawk. I don't go crazy at Christmas but I tend to avoid shopping retail this time of year. If you do the same....Good Luck! Be safe.
