I'm almost done shopping. Gonna put the tree up after kids go to bed. Then tomorrow we will put the ornaments on it after school.

I start after the girls bdays so I shop all year long. DD's bday is at the end of march so I start in April for her and then SD's bday is in May so I start as soon as I finish bday shopping lol. DH's is always last minute, and the rest are done - but I always start second guessing myself and wonder if I have enough stuff...then when I haul it all out I realize how much I have actually bought and then use some as their bday presents the next year! I am a mess what can I say!

Is your list long?

You are on top of it! Do you normally get done this early?

I literally look year round....I was wrapping gifts yesterday and was disgusted with myself, I have way too many gifts for a 2 year old.  Some are now going to charity.  We have to ship gifts to three different states so we like to get them done early.

When dh and I finally got our own place, I got all the Xmas shopping finished before October. I did that a few times, but the kids were younger. Now I homeschool and work on the weekends so it's November and I haven't started.

I typically start in September or October. With the pregnancy, I only just started this month. November is definitely not early for me. This is unusual and stressing me out. lol When you get paid monthly, that means there's only one more check between me and Christmas!
