Last minute shopping in Toronto

Christmas Countdown: 3 Shoppers Shopping

Only three days until Christmas! Economic struggles or not, gift giving season is upon us and the malls are packed.

The way I see it, there are two types of Christmas shoppers; those who think three days is plenty of time to do all their shopping, and those who are already done all their shopping. I'm always one of the former, so I know a thing or two about busy malls, last minute gifts and long cold walks carrying heavy bags across entire parking lots.

Thankfully, I've been able to avoid the malls on the weekend for the past month, but this time of year, that doesn't seem to matter. Last week, on a Monday, I was in the neighborhood of Yorkdale so decided to stop in and look around. After thirty minutes looking for a spot to park (and I was looking in the farthest places, I'm not a greedy parker) I decided it wasn't worth it. I couldn't find anything, anywhere. Plus, that was before the snow piles that fill about a third of the parking lots now that it's snowed.

Lesson learned. The rest of my shopping will be done via TTC! Plenty of time left!
