Why you should start Christmas shopping now

Experts in consumerism say Christmas shopping should start now.

The supply chain issues going on are making it hard to obtain anything right now, and waiting even longer without being proactive may make it impossible as the holiday gets closer.

Items are stalled when being shipped by sea or plane, and they’re still struggling to make it onto store shelves once they get here due to the labor shortage across the country.




Shipping delays are also a major issue right now, and by ordering now you minimize the risk of still waiting for Christmas gifts after Christmas has already passed.

Prices are also on the rise everyday. What may seem a little steep today could be outrageously overpriced by Christmas.

Historically some of the best sales are in November, which can be early enough to beat the Christmas rush.
