  • Ha ha! Are you crazy? I wish I could say I have, but right now it's a challenge to get to the grocery store, let alone Christmas shopping. Kudos to you, though! You will be sitting back laughing at all of us last minute shoppers!

  • yes ma'am. I love doing it throughout the year. I don't go crazy broke all at one time. and I find gifts that mean more than just grabbing something to have something to give last minute

  • I started last christmas, Waited till all the stuff went on sale the day after and went and bought the stores out. Bought enough for birthdays too. I bought a ton on specif for ppl stuff and a ton of generic gifts to give to the odd birthday child or graduation or something. I do do more shopping throught the year but I generally buy up after Christmas.

  • I think if I started Christmas shopping this early, I wouldn't enjoy all the time between now and then.

  • You know, it sounds like a great idea! Instead of waiting till a month or two before Christmas and going broke by spending a lot of money all at once, I think I will take some of your advice and buy some things here and there throughout the year!
    Thanks for the tip!

  • i have picked up litle things here and there. i try not to wait until the last minute for the mad rush and blow all my money on mpulse crap. i try to but throughtout the year and buy things that i know my dd will enjoy. and it helps me budget my money a little bit better.

  • Now, I may not start shopping but I've been putting money away from Christmas since Christmas last year..... I enjoy shopping during the Christmas season, the music, decorations and the feeling in the air is just a pleasure for me.
