Just finished my Christmas shopping

The goal was to finish it as early as possible this year. I'd say I've accomplished my goal. My shopping is now done! I went out this morning to pick up the last couple of pieces I needed to finish my list for the kids.. I still have to do stocking stuffers of course, gift cards for teachers/bus driver, little things for the kids' friends that they always exchange with.. I've even started wrapping.. I'll finish that tomorrow as I have the day off work and the kids will all be at school. I love being ahead of the game! Now I can start planning/saving for next year. How's your shopping coming along?

Most years I wish I didn't have to shop. Hubby and I no longer get gifts for each other, and I don't buy for anyone except the kids, their teachers, and a couple of their friends..

@crazyhorseladycx Sure is tricky.. but that's okay.. it's kinda fun, especially when you're not stressed out about getting it done!

A good start is better than not at all! I'd be freaking out right now if I wasn't at least half way done.. only because I have so much I have to get, and there aren't enough paychecks left between now and Christmas to do much!

Wrapping is the fun part although my wrapping skills aren't that great. I am slowly purchasing stuff daily...

I'm not awesome at wrapping either.. especially when it's not a regular box! Good thing I only buy for my kids and they don't care how it's wrapped!

I'm going to hopefully be done in two weeks. Not that much to get.

With 5 kids I always have to start early, and I tend to get a lot.. each kid gets about 10 presents..

You're doing well. It's nice to be a bit ahead. There is always something extra turns up that you hadn't bargained on and that can eat into your time.

I don't think that will happen this year.. except perhaps with the small things. Sometimes the classes will do a gift exchange or something like that.. but those are always small items so that's not too hard to pick up last minute.

We do not do a lot of shopping, and often it is giftcards. I have some little things for the grandkids, and some things for the guys in the family for stocking stuffers. I may actually still make some things as well.

If I didn't have a whole ton to buy, I wouldn't be so stressed about it either..

My shopping has not started. Will do that next week in the early hours of the morning to beat the crowds. Glad you are way ahead on your Christmas shopping.
