I usually have started shopping in July, however this year I don't have anything yet- not even any ideas!!  I am starting to panic! haha

i buy during the year at 70 percent or sometimes 50 percent clearance sales, and I always shop the sales and use coupons.

shop all yr round coupon policies in PR are quite different than in most of the Continental USA so couponing in PR is almost a waste of time and money.

I use to buy christmas presents early but the deals are so much better now as you get closer to christmas.

I'll start thinking about it a few months prior, but won't do most of the shopping until December.
