How far in advance?

How far in advance do you plan your holiday lists, activities, gifts, etc?

Are you thinking about any of it yet?

Haha I started my Christmas gift list a couple months ago, just re-evaluated it tonight and purchased a couple of items off the list for Christmas.  

I usually do everything else a few months in advance, Christmas I do a lot earlier.   

I am also planning 2 boys birthdays, 1 in Sept 1 in Oct.

Usually several months in advance. I've already started Christmas shopping.

I've been using a Pinterest board to keep track of their Christmas list ideas. It's been helpful!

Wow! You're busy busy then!

I will start looking into Halloween stuff (in-stores), next month.--We already have several costume ideas saved.

 Thanksgiving stuff in October.

Christmas stuff--aleady starting on that. lol.. It's a lot more prep than the other holidays coming up.

Now as far as activities, I have them on the calander as soon as dates are available. I Already have several on the calander for Sept., Oct. & Nov.--Dec. dates will HOPEFULLY be available soon. I am a big planner! lol

Great idea on the pinterest board. I just have a list on word. Yes, very busy. I bought Halloween outfits last week, i had a coupon code, plus I like to order in advance incase they are too big or small I have time to return and get the correct size.
