How much money do you spend on Christmas shopping? Do you buy for all of your family or just your immediate family? For me, I make a list of who I want to get stuff for, ideas of what I want to get them, how much I want to spend, what I actually got them, if I wrapped them. Once I decide what to get them, I shop around until I find the best price.

I have not started shopping. I usually make some gifts, and purchase some. I normally save my change for Christmas shopping, but a family member stole my change. I am hoping to make money by posting here and writing a few a articles.

I haven't started my christmas shopping but as a preparation, I also list down the names of the person and the things I will buy them. I also at times right an estimated budget for each person so as not to overspend.

I do my Christmas shopping from the beginning of the year till the end.. since some stuff can be bought much earlier.. and waiting till Christmas may sometime can't find it on the rack anymore.. I will buy the gift first on my 'priority' listing, and then followed by others.. as for the budget, every year, the gifts will cost approximately USD250 for total, in which contains gift for my parents, siblings, best buddies.. This year, I think I need to save on this amount, and I am planning to bake for everyone instead..

hello, christmas is in the air! the weather has started to be much colder and songs play in the radio and one gets nostalgic. we do the same, first a list, then things to buy, then the wrapping and off they go. ann
