Have you started thinking of CHRISTMAS already?

I have.  We buy starting September so we don't have to spend money all at once later down the road.  It feels nicer on the pocket spread out like this lol.

Oh yes. We've been looking at Christmas trees online b/c we want a bigger one this year!

We've also started looking into gifts for the kids. I think we'll start shopping mid-September or first of October & get a little here and there so we're not bogged down and spending a ton of money at one time.

YES!...We haven't started shopping-yet...But I've been thinking about what to buy & I've already picked out the perfect spot for my tree, which I'll put up November 1st, and I absolutely can't wait to put my stockings up over the fireplace!! :)

Next year, we are reserving $25-$50 to put into a holiday account our credit union offers.  You take the money out November 1.  If we do that, we will have $250-$500 to spend on Christmas without touching our pocket at the moment at all! Whatever we don't use we can just put into our regular savings. :)

Yes! We haven't started shopping, though DH and I have talked about something that we're planning on getting/window shopping.

Yes, its been on my mind, though I havent started shopping yet. But every Christmas Day we go to both sides of the families and I want to split it up this year. One yr., go to my sisters next his. But dh is on the fence, so its been a hot topic discussion as of late.Ugh.
