  • If we actually had money I'd be done already. It's hard to be finished with Christmas shopping early when you're broke.

  • If I wrap before the week before Christmas, I buy duplicate gifts or, don't buy enough for one and buy too much for another. I can't keep them straight if they are wrapped.

  • I'm only a third done. I went out for about 6 hours this week at Target and Toys R Us. I have wrapped what I have so far. Plus I have all the stocking stuffers.

  • I'm about 1.2 way done and I but a little here and there when I see something I think someone may like. But I don't wrap until a week before Christmas because my children like to unwrap the presents...I don't even get paper until then or it disappears!

  • I started my shopping in June this year! I have lists that I make year around when I come up with gift ideas, so then I just wait for things to go on sale and I buy them when they do and just save them for birthdays or Christmas

  • You know what I think, I think its b/c I have teenagers now. They didnt even have a clue as to what they wanted till this past weekend. I told them I need to stretch this out over a couple different paychecks cause I have to do cash on the barrel. I spend so much money on them and their school activities all year long that when Christmas rolls around it is a seperate situation all on its own,,lol,,,Plus dd is graduating this year and I need to save money for her pics and grad gown etc,,,,,too much. I just thought it was interesting that some of you guys have this whole thing wrapped up already, no pun intended,,ok maybe a little
