Who has started Christmas shopping?

Posted by   + Show Post
I started months ago! I go to Once Upon A Child and look for new in the box toys. It's an awesome way to start shopping early! I've already gotten brand new in the box Lego sets for an 1/4 of the price in the store.

Usually, we would be done or close to it by now....but we are totally slacking this year. Haven't even bought one gift, we took a mini vaca to NYC, so you would think we would have bought souvenir gifts, but nope lol

I started months ago, but I am planning to really stock up at Target's end of July toy clearance. With all 4 of our birthdays in december, I have to shop early.

 i always start after christmas.  you can get great things on clearance after christmas.  i have a big family & with b-days & christmas that's allot of gifts.  i pick up stuff on clearance throughout the year that way i'm not spending a big chunck of change at once for gifts.  i just went through my gift box a few weeks ago & found that i'm more than 1/2 way done with my shopping for the year.

 Not me. I try to wait until all birthdays are done with. The last one is in September so shortly after that I will start.

All I have left to do is get my kids stuff. I normally make all jy Christmas gifts and that's done unless I want to give people apricot jam when I'm finished.
