You are not alone if you still haven't finished your holiday shopping.
Some people are looking for deals, and some are just last minute shoppers.
But it might surprise you how much people are spending who's shelling out more this holiday season.
Alan Temple said he has a lot more shopping to do in the last few days before Christmas, but he wouldn't have it any other way.
He said this is the best time to shop in the world.
"You know it's the excitement of you know, hurrying up and getting through there because the lines are shorter you don't have to stand in line all day," said Temple.
Others plan ahead and have the holiday shopping routine down cold.
According to data from the National Retail Federation, folks will be spending an average of 749-dollars this year.
That's a minimal increase of just 9-dollars over last year-but that's not stopping people from hitting the malls.
"We've really noticed and really getting feedback from our stores, they're seeing an increase in sales as well-so not only seeing the increase in traffic, but that's showing up on the bottom line," said Brad Boothe.
And with those sales come the last minute shoppers and for good reason.
"I'm hoping to find some good deals. You know, hoping that last minute will bring in some good sales," said Lindsey Stump.
With a slowly recovering economy, no wonder people want the deals.
But the Business Insider says that men will spend more than women.
On average, several hundred more per year and the holiday budget is no different.
The National Retail Federation estimates although shoppers are still spending conservatively, holiday sales will increase 4.1% to over 586-billion dollars.
