How many of you have started....

Christmas shopping??? or at least thinking about it? I've gotten a few small things, nothing big yet. Mostly stocking stuffers. But I will probably start soon. Last year I started in March.

  • Wow!! You sure do plan ahead of time! Not me...usually I start before Thanksgiving, but then again I don't have many to shop for. If it works for you then great!

  • not me... I find if I start too early I buy too much stuff. Also because my son is only 2 he may have out grown or is no longer interested in everything that I have bought him in the summer.

  • I won't start til after Halloween. I don't like to shop too early - I have no way of knowing 6 months in advance what toys my kids will be into.

  • Hmmm. for some reason November and December are always super tight months for us, so financially it helps if we spread it out. I'm saving up mypoints and swagbucks to use for Christmas shopping- do you guys do those? For some reason I am doing really well with mypoints this year and getting a lot of gift cards.
