Have you started Christmas shopping yet?

Posted by   + Show Post

Or do you wait until the last minute? Or are you done already?

I have done layaway before. It is good but limited to a few stores.

Quoting pmsforlife:

I'm always last minute, but I want to try the whole layaway thing.

Woohoo. It's nice finding things early and unexpectedly.

Quoting bookworm14:

I actually have started. I picked up a couple small notebooks that I'll throw in their stockings. Then I found a shirt for my stepson and the cutest 3-piece pajama set for my stepdaughter. I don't normally start this early but I was in TJmaxx last week and couldn't resist.

Yep... and mine are at the inbetween stage. They want some toys but they want lots of other things as well, lol. This age is hard- they want the really expensive stuff at 12 and I don't think they need really expensive stuff at 12.

Me too. I hate shopping after Thanksgiving.

I have actually gotten two gifts out of the way already- that is a record for me, lol. I usually start in Nov and finish fairly quickly once I start.


That's how I am.  I try to finish before Thanksgiving.

Me too!  The toy sales are always the best the week or two before Thanksgiving - and if they aren't you can always get a price adjustment.  Plus you have the best selection before Thanksgiving. I hate the post -Thanksgiving lack of parking and all the crowds.

I like the slowly but surely route- it doesn't break the bank and you get to take your time.

DH and I have started. We have our Dad's gifts purchased, but right now, the shopping is slowly but surely.
