With my busy life style I always try to start my x mass shopping as early as possible. I happened to start this year in January. I am really just about done already .. I always hit the clearence areas. For example , I bought my great grandchildren each a huge x mass bear ( 10 cents each ) the only person I really need to shop for now is my son I always leave him for last, my 2 nephews and 1 niece and I am done .. I plan to be all finished by next month . So do share are you a early bird x mass shopper?

I am shopping all year long too. I have finished my 2 nieces all clearace items too. I have all the stocking stuffers bought ( I buy for my 4 kids and my sons girfriend who lives with him). I don't dare buy my teenage boys things early because they work and if I buy the something on sale they may just go and buyit themselves. I also love the hustle and bustle of Christmas shopping!

LOL your just like me .. I really enjoy shopping early.. my co workers say I am crazy.. but to come up with all that extra cash at holiday time is not easy .. and the big meals we make .. It just tugs at my wallet so I shop when I can ..

Hey, you have given me a terrific idea! I shall make it my goal to shop for my wife, my mother, my mother-in-law and grandmother-inlaw before November 1st! That will take the stress out of it. Let's see how it works out.

I envy you for having your gift shopping almost completed. Boy that is early. It is a good idea though. Now you can relax more during the holiday rush when it approaches. I don't usually end up shopping too early.
