Christmas in July anyone ?

This weekend I'm Christmas shopping ! Yup you read right.  No I'm not crazy or certifiable ...

DH's family lives 750 miles away from us - and in August a relative is coming to visit us and she's driving so, in order to save on time, shipping fees and all that good stuff, we'll be sending back the gifts with her !  LOL We did that last year as well and it worked out great !  She will also be giving us Our presents to stash away until Christmas.

To be honest I actually started shopping months ago when all the post Christmas sales were on ... I started stock piling stuff.  So I actually have very little stuff to buy this weekend. But I have a lot of wrapping to do !

Do you think I'm crazy or do you stock pile too ?

LOL. I was reading this and a commercial came on for a Christmas in July sale.

Anyways, I usually start doing Christmas shopping after August since both of my kids have august birthdays. Anything in get before august gets used for birthdays. I'm hoping ton have most of my shopping done by November since I'm due with this baby.

That actually sounds like a smart idea.

That is such a great idea!  I'm sure its nice not having to rush around like the rest of us in November/December.

I can't hold on to a gift that long....I can barely make it a few days to the holiday. lol  If I do buy early I usually end up giving the gift early and then buying another one to wrap for the occassion.

I think you're smart. I shop when there are sales and when what I need is available. You have to buy swim suits in December anymore, and winter stuff now, it's crazy. But anyway, I have already bought most of the stuff I'm getting DD for Christmas and it's just sitting in boxes waiting. I think your plan is great!
