  • Oh hell yes! I start Christmas shopping in August after my daughters birthday and I had a great year with my business I'm still spending money. If I could get out of the 2 feet of snow we just had I'd be at the mall!

  • I agree with jodi205,I love buying for others,and if I had a million dollars,I would spend it all on people for the holidays.I bought for 40 kids this year,and don't regret one thing.

  • No... It's the first year I haven't been able to buy the kids everything they wanted :( .... but it will help them focus on the true meaning of Christmas instead of the gifts! Merry Christmas every one!

  • I have spent more than I wanted and it has seriously hurt my budget, but I am excited about everything I got for people. I put a lot of thought into what I got and I bargained shopped for those items to the best of my abilities. I can't wait to see everyone's reactions on Thursday!

  • Actually, this is the first yr that I HAVEN'T spent too much! lol Usually, I spend way more than I plan to. This yr, I've been out of work most of the yr, so I had a very limited budget. I went online, and looked, and planned and was very careful to pick and choose what I was going to buy before I went to the stores, and spent way less than I usually do, and right around the amount that I budgeted for this yr. I think I'm going to start doing it that way every yr now.
