Have you started Christmas shopping?

Christmas is about 16 weeks away. We started three weeks ago picking up one gift per child each week.  Nothing expensive about $10-$20 per child.  Did you start yours yet?

 I have a tendency to shop all year. When I see things that someone would like I pick them up.

Negative... 

My IL's have gotten the kids their gifts already, so what we are getting them goes with theirs. Luckily, they will get theirs from their Grands on Christmas Eve so ours will make sense the following morning. 

My YDD is getting a DS XL from my IL's and GMIL and my mom is giving her a few games.. we are giving her a case and some games...we will also get her some Sophia the First things as that is her new fave. 

My ODD is getting a Nook Tablet from my IL's and GMIL. My mom is getting her a gift card to buy books/apps. We are giving her a case, a gift card, and not sure what else.. her birthday is in November so I am waiting until after her birthday anyway.. plus, I go out with my mommy for Black Friday to go shopping.

I have been doing it this way too. I see something and I pick it up and wrap it and tuck it away. We are a family of 8 so I have to do it this way through out the year .I put numbers instead of name tags so if one of the nosey kids ( usually my 11yo dd) finds them they don't know who its for. :0)

A little. I like doing my shopping on black friday. That's how I score my big ticket gifts.

Nope.
But I did begin budgeting eight weeks ago.
Yea for me!
I get to jump on the, "You knew it was coming why didn't you plan for it" bandwagon early this year
, LOL.
