  • I start when I have the money. I'm already pretty much done for this year. I don't like fighting the crowds.

  • I usually start in November (sometimes on Black Friday). I will probably start in September this year because our daughter is due on Halloween. If not, I'll just do my xmas shopping online instead.

  • i've already started. if i see something i know my son or dd will love on sale, i'll get it. I've started on ds already, got him a leapfrog video game thing for $9! dd, however, her birthday is coming up so i'll start hers after her party. normally i don't start till a couple months before christmas, but this year we're really strapped on money, so buying it while i can is how it's gonna work. every year i've always said i was going to start early anyway.

  • I was just organizing the gifts I have so far to see who I still need to buy for. I start around February. I always try to be done mostly by November. Then I wrap gifts in November and December is final touches on everything.

  • I just went through my stuff the other day because I already forgot what I bought so far! I start the first of the year and am usually done and wrapped by Nov.

  • Imma start in August. We get paid once a month, so we can't just do it all in december. So I like to start early.
