  • I am done, because we do not shop, no gifts , no tree, no stress, no bills. We celebrate family. We have a great dinner, visit, play games and maybe watch a movie together. It is awesome and stress free.

  • I start the day after Christmas then shop all year long. Other then the food stuff I am going to do I am done the food part won't be done. The food won't be bought until I'm ready to deliver the presents

  • I shop most of the year. I have a spot in the back of my closet to tuck away gifts I find on sale through the year. I put a note to myself inside each bag, so I remember who the gift is for. (yeah, I learned to do this the hard way :-\ )
