Since I know like always there will be posts saying people should have started saving for christmas or buying gifts early...

How early do you ladies start stocking up on gifts or christmas money if you do? And how early do you think is too early to start

ETA: wow I didn't expect do many mamas to have actually started Christmas shopping so early *not a bash* and at least I don't have to feel so odd at the thought of starting early this year.

We are having a small, like tiny, Christmas this year.  I will start buying a gift or two each payday at the end of this month.

I start shopping in September and I'm finished by November. I think it is never too early. 

But I do it that way because I hate the crowds in December...people aren't very happy doing their last minute shopping :(

This year, I am doing the 52 week money saving challenge and using the money just for Christmas.

3 moms liked this

We dont.

We only buy two or three gifts that are reqlly going to be loved and used a lot, so we dont save for it really. We dont buy fancy things. Generally, a couple tngs that allow for use of the imagination.

I have picked up a few small things.   My kids get three actual gifts...  usually something they really want, a box of clothes, and the third thing is always up for grabs.   It's not quite as big as the first "really want"... sometimes it's something useful, sometimes it's something fun.
