Holiday Shopping

I know it's some time away, but i hear a lot of parents saying that they'll like to get things out the way early. Is there any big Christmas purchases you're thinking about buying long before the holiday season arrives. Is it some things that you would rather get out the way now or in the upcoming months, and why. What will the items be? Bump This

  • I plan on having everything finished up for christmas by Aug maybe Sept. ( there will always be something little that I will add to it but you know lol ) I plan on buying everything I know they like and things I think they'll like before hand so that way I can just sit back and not stress out like everyone else

  • At the end of the summer when all the summer stuff will go on clearance, I am going to buy either an above ground pool system or a trampoline. that's the only "big thing".
