Do you procrastinate with your Christmas shopping? 

Forbes wrote an interesting article a few years ago explaining why men wait until the last minute to start their Christmas shopping. While women start Christmas shopping as early as December 26th the year before. 

They found that men procrastinate because deep down they’re perfectionists. And this reminds me about how most people approach their financial plan.
