buying gifts year round?

Does anyone stock up on Christmas gifts year round? I'm thinking I may need to start doing this if I can catch some good sales. Seems like every year around this time, we are broke and have to struggle to gather up something small at the last minute for everyone.

I didn't buy them all year round this year but I did start at the end of August or beginning of September and used a little bit from each paycheck. My husband's old job gave everyone a profit sharing check every December so I never tried buying things so early before but this year he doesn't have that. It's helped a lot! I was actually able to afford to buy the American Girl doll my oldest has been wanting which I never expected. :-)

I don't do it year round because their interests and abilities change so fast but i usually start in september or October and lay away is my friend! I get it all done but pay a little every week and i don't have to find places to hide a bunch of toys from my curious 7 yr old!

 I start in the summer. You could try buying 1 gift a month for each kid it will help.

I have good intentions of doing that but I usually don't. If I find a cute outfit on sale that will fit during the holidays I will grab it  or something on clearance I will pick it up but it doesn't add up to much.
