  • Nope, have even given it a thought, lol. I'll probably start sometime in November like I always do. Always works out fine. :)

  • Like Mythic MMM I started the day after Christmas last year (actually it might have even been earlier than that for this year), we have a HUGE family and are expecting our first baby (will be induced this weekend), so I knew I wouldn't have the energy or time after he's born for a while, so I'm almost done for this year already. It's good to know other people are as crazy as I am about getting it done early.

  • I usually start my shopping in July for all the family lilke parents and brother, sisters. I usually leave my kids stuff until the day after Thanksgiving! Most of the time the stuff they want is on sale pretty cheap, but the older they gett the more expensive things are getting. My 7 year old wants an IPOD this year. Lord help me they arent even teenagers yet!!

  • I haven't even thought about it yet. Ask me again in December. I HATE shopping, so I wait until the last minute.
