Hi, Jaybelle. =o)

I generally start really late like within the 2 weeks prior to Christmas but I have been seriously debating doing the all year shopping thing. We will see how that goes next year!!

September/October is when I start thinking about it and I certainly get serious about it in November.

We usually start in October. We try to get something every paycheck (twice a month). It doesn't always work out that way, but we try! Lol. Yay for your sons first Christmas!

I am shocked that for once I have got the majority of my shopping done.  Both my daughters are done except for some shoes the oldest one insist on.  We have a few more gift cards to get to send in the mail and to take a picture at Sea World and get it framed, but otherwise I am done. WOOOHOOOOO

I start in October.  There is a website that I go to where I can print out all kinds of forms to help get me and keep me organized this time of the year.  It's www.organizedchristmas.com.  I just print out the pages I know I will use (which is most of them) and put them in plastic page protectors and then in a 3 ring binder.  It is definitely my lifesaver for the holidays.

I try and start early because I am an internet shopper and need time for shipment!

I check weekly ads at stores year round. If I see something thats on sale that my son will like I usually put it up for Christmas. This year I'm almost completely done with his shopping. I can't wait for the better than black Friday sales at Kmart so I can get a few more things for him.

I started in august. I bought a bunch of Summer clearance for next summer. I am still not sure what else she may get. Money is tight so we are only shopping for DD. Everyone else is getting framed pictures of DD.
