I actually start Christmas shopping in July every year. I have a Christmas fund that dumps every July. My mother and I go to the outlet malls and rack up on all kinds of deals!

I wait until the last minute. I'm sorry, but I have so much other things to do and so much other things on my mind, that I don't really think about Christmas until two or three months before hand. I'm sure it would be better for me to start early, but I just can't find the time.

That is cool that you have a Christmas fund. I never manage to save any money for Christmas.

I once had mine done by Halloween. That was about 7 years ago. I have not even come close to being done early ever since.

That is how I am normally. My son always changes his mind about what he wants, so it is hard to buy early for him.

You are so crazy. And so am I! I was actually thinking of Christmas and what I would get. I think it's a good idea for me to start getting some presents now. Because when school starts I am going to be really strapped for money. But the thing is that I live with my mother and siblings and I have absolutely no place to hide the presents so that will probably be really hard if I do start shopping now. But I'll just probably start making a list or something.

I was thinking about Christmas because I still have the present I got my brother last year. I forgot about it and got him a different present. So, I guess I have one present already bought.

Well I guess that's good then. You have one less present to worry about then.

Shopping is fun when you can actually afford it.

Lord, help me! Just reading this sent me into a panic...I always say each year that I want to start early, but it always ends up being a last minute mad dash to the stores two weeks before Christmas. So,um...... No, I haven't started yet.

No, I'm lucky to get started by the 24th! I probably should start earlier, but I haven't managed to yet.

I wait until December before I go out and shop for Christmas presents. Because I'm thinking, what if the thing I bought her now, she will buy during the rest of the year? What am I going to do with the gift? And what if almost Christmas she wants or needs something? Just my point of view.
