Anybody started Christmas shopping yet?

  1. Since the stores will be putting out the Christmas stuff soon (if they haven't already) I was wondering if anyone has started shopping for Christmas? Last week, I picked up a couple of things. I wasn't intending on Christmas shopping but the Disney store had a great sale. So, I started shopping. Anyone else? One of my co-workers stated she is almost done Christmas shopping. I usually don't get in the mood to shop for Christmas until October (unless I see a sale). How about others?

    although some stores in my area have some christmas items out, i do not start until the last minute. this is one of the only times that i rather do my shopping as late as possible.

    I picked up some hair items for my daughter that she does not need now; they will make great stocking stuffers. I am ALWAYS on the lookout for little things my son would like as he is difficult to buy for. About a month ago, I purchased some unique silver coins (at a coin show) both the kids would like.

    I usually buy a lot of little items that are practical (always getting them new underwear - it is a family joke).

    I buy the big item (always with their recomendation these days) at the last minute in hopes of a sale!

    We only buy for our nieces and nephews, and a few other people, if our families have exchanges. Saves a lot of worries. I buy the kids clothes and books throughout the year. I HATE paying full-price for anything, and they all love Old Navy, so I've stocked up on lots of stuff for them for items $1.99-8.99. I love to shop, but I hate fighting crowds to get my bargains. Will try to avoid Wal-Mart at all possible costs between THanksgiving and New Year's.

    I usually wait until the last minute to do my shopping. Every year I promise myself that I will be more organized and get it done earlier than Christmas Eve!

    Give me a few weeks, I usually start in September. People think I'm crazy, but they're just jealous. I don't even enter the malls after the middle of November!
