Have you started your Christmas shopping yet?

Is it too early to discuss such matters? For thise who celebrate, have you started your Christmas shopping as of yet? When do you normally start it? I am happy to say I just received a few items in the mail I ordered from Amazon as gifts. Granted its a very small start - socks and coffee for my aunt, the first two seasons of Ash vs Evil Dead for my dad (who loves Evil dead, ha). I was lucky to have had a few Amazon gift cards on hand to pay for these with. I hope to get all of it knocked out by the beginning of December. If all goes as planned. My family is pretty easy to shop for, inexpensive and not entitled or demanding. They give me lists with very practical items - socks, sheets, candles, body wash sets. I never end up spending all that much. How many people do you shop for? Have you started?

I used to shop for so many when our son was little, but when the nieces and nephews reach age 18, then we do not buy gifts for them. That means I have fewer to shop for now which does make for an easier holiday and a less pricy one.

No, I have not. I am waiting for Black Friday at Amazon. A tip to US residents. Go to Amazon mturk and register. They have survey and work projects that will add up dollar value for you to get a discount at Amazon. I have used it for years and it puts some money in my pocket.
I would really just like to buy Lottery scratch cards for everyone. The family house is just full of unnecessary stuff, unused gifts, forgotten appliances. Plus I think my mom-in-law, after discovering about this thrift shop downtown (my fault, cause I showed her where I buy my clothes and all other second hand stuff), now has developed some kind of uncontrolled hoarding tendencies . So to not add to the mound of junk, I feel better off sticking to the scratch cards.

I'm not shopping for Christmas much this year. I have begun Christmas though, in my way. I mail out a Christmas short story each year. I am asking folks who wants the story already. I also just ordered a Santa paper for the story's front cover. And today I wrote another short Christmas story. So I'm not buying the traditional sense but am working in the spirit.
