When do you start shopping for Christmas?

I pick stuff up all year. I get the bulk of it between December 26-31. 50-90% off

  • I usually go shopping one weekend shortly before Thanksgiving and get it all done in one trip. I have nosy kids, so I can't shop all year even if I want to, and it's hard for me to arrange a sitter often enough to do any real shopping other than the one time.

  • Usually after Thanksgiving, since that's when we will have our full list of who to buy for.

  • Usually start picking things up in August or September...I do NOT undersand why people wait so long
    it's less painful on the wallet to pick up one thing here or there, and you get the stuff you want- no worries of it selling out before you have a chance, and you can also get stuff when it's on sale :)

  • This year I started in September... but no matter how early I start I'm always finishing it up as late as I possibly can! Wah...

  • I start in September, mostly small things like stocking stuffers and small gifts. We have a small house and no where to really hide gifts. We start buying in earnest in November.
