As we know from years past, Bethenny Frankel goes all out when it comes to Halloween at her house. So although it wouldn’t have been a surprise to see The Real Housewives of New York City alum’s shopping cart filled with spooky decor during a trip to HomeGoods on Oct. 20, it turns out she was at the home decor store to prepare for a completely different occasion.

“We just made a painfully early Christmas present,” Bethenny said in an Instagram Story video, noting that she spent $800 during her outing. “We start very early because we take Christmas very seriously.”

While explaining what inspired her to start her Christmas shopping months before the holidays, Bethenny said her assistant was “still recovering from last year’s Christmas gift situation where she had to handle and organize and help me with 250 gifts.”

During her trip to HomeGoods, Bethenny bought gift bags, tissue paper, “gift enhancers” and some new kitchen decor to put out later this year: A “‘Snoopy doghouse cookie jar” because, she explained, “I obviously needed to.”

“Don’t try to judge me,” Bethenny said in an Instagram Story video after showing off a closet in her home filled with gift bags. “It’s just that it almost killed us last year, because you’re busy during the holidays, and then you have 250 gifts to buy, to collect, and we had the day.”

“It does matter,” she concluded. “So that’s why it was kind of crazy.”
