How early do you start shopping for xmas?

It seems like every year I have waited until the last minute, but this year I got smart. In January, I started buying each of my kids ( I have three) one gift each every paycheck and they each have 20 gifts now! I'm so happy I did it this way cause I'm usually only able to buy them 3 at the most.

  • I usually start looking at stuff, getting ideas in August or so. The actual shopping is done by November 1st. Wrapping is done by the following week.
