Have ya started? I have just a few things. I hate to wait last minute & crowds but its still a tad stressful. Yes, $ always seems to be the issue & knowing there are a few people who always seem to spend alot more on you, and ya can't give something back as luxurious. I know thats not what xmas is all about but I think we all know someone like that "the big spenders".

  • Yep, I have to start early. I pretty much shop all year buying things as I find them on sale/clearance. Stockings are done. Now just got to knock out the 'bigger' gifts.

  • I went to Wal-Mart with dd this weekend and bought Christmas cookie tins for $1 each. We are going to bake cookies and give them to friends who helped with driving this year for my kids and to our other family friends. I actually just moved them out of the kitchen,,,into the pantry cause its gonna be awhile till we use them. :)

  • I TRY to have everything finished by Thanksgiving (Lord help me if I have to battle post-Tgiving traffic!!). I do MOST shopping online, but we will attempt some homemade presents this year (decorated jars with cookie mix, or brownie mix, or trail mix...stuff like that).
