I went today and started my layaway for Christmas. 

Most of everything in there is for my ds. My ds has about 8 gifts on layaway and my dd has only 2. my ds is 10and my dd is 14. my layaway is a little over $300 not bad for 2 kids. $80 is the 2 gifts for my dd

I still have 2 3ds to get for my kids they each will get on each. and i have to get my dd a IPOD  and 2 more small gifts for my dd as well. My dd will get less than my ds because he gift cost a lot more than my ds. i added it up in my head and their gifts will add up to the same amount when i am done.

I will be spending about $400 on each child including the 3ds.


So have you started shopping, are you done or you the type who waits until last minute. I used to be a last minute type but i realize I can get more if i start a little earlier.

This is what i got so far:

 DS 10 years old

air hog $30

Lego $30

lego $30

Sky lander $25

Halo $33

X3 face off $24

Air Hog $23

he will be getting the $3ds about $200

DD 14 years old

Head phone  $40

stereo $40

I still have to get her a lava lamp and I think at big lots they cost about $20

and either a jacket or just dance for her WII the just dance is $30 not sure how much the jacket will cost

 and she will get the IPOD that is $100

And the 3ds for $200

 I will be waiting until December to get the 3ds's and i still have to get my dh another aquarium for his bearded dragon which will cost about $180

 I will be so glad when Christmas is over.

I don't do Layawaym but I'm about half way done with DD.

We bought DD two American Girl dolls (Ivy and Julie), two accessories that go with each one. DD will be getting Skylander's Swap Force. She got two Lego Sets (the Museum break in, and then the Lego Friend's stables)

Then probably whatever els we see that we know she'll like. That's the major stuff though.

 I start my shopping in January. I budget each month for Christmas and hit sales. If I can't pay for something out right my daughter won't get it.
