  • Sometime in Nov. I am casual about shopping. I like it to be fun and not a MISSION. When Halloween is over and they start putting up Xmas decorations I get into the mood.

    WoW you start making a list in Sept and shop in OCT. Wow

  • In past years I've started after Dec. 1. It's my mission this year to be completely finished by Dec. 1.

  • We're starting early this year too, but in November.
    I browse throughout the year for ideas and what-not, but I don't start making the actually list until about October.

  • I start in July! Unfortunately I can never remember who I already bought for, so I usually end up buying two things for everyone.

  • I already started the list. I will probably start shopping in about 2 weeks.

  • I've been brainstorming for a few weeks now on ideas for my kids. I will be starting shopping in October. Can't wait!

  • My list os made out the day after Christmas ends and I am always looking for bargains and what not all yr long

  • I've already started the list. I know what I want to get DH for Christmas already. Everyone else is really easy to buy for, they all live out of state and I just order online. But I do have to put a box of stuff together to send to friends stationed in Afghanistan, that should be interesting to do. I've done them for the ships and for Iraq but not for Afghanistan yet.
