  • I generally start about this time of year. I used to do all my shopping early (like done before thanksgiving) but then I would get swepted up in the spirit of the holiday hustle and bustle and end up spending more money than I ment to. So now.... I just buy the really important things early that I think may get super popular during the holidays and hard to find now - october-ish. Then I just window shop and get ideas for everyone, keep a list of what I want to get, then when Christmas shopping gets into full swing I stick to a per person budget. So I get what I need, get good prices, but don't get carried away in the holiday rush

  • Right about this time. Usually October 1st because there are 6 pay periods before Christmas.

  • Late October/Early November. I do a lot of shopping online. I never start earlier because the kids are always changing their minds, I want to make sure they are getting things that they want.

  • December 26th for sure, the sales are awesome! And I'm usually done by August or September.

  • As soon as I see something cool I think the kids will like....the key is to remember where I put it!
