Christmas Shopping - Who's Started?

Well, I know it's mighty early to be counting down the days until Christmas, but I know that many of you have started shopping. Do you have specific plans on how you shop? Are there certain people on your list that you shop for earlier than others? I haven't started shopping yet, but I am saving up gift cards earned from different places on the web.

I started my Christmas shopping the day after Christmas last year. I like to beat the rush. I also save a lot of money at this time too since all gift sets and christmas wrap and tags are on sale. I also love to shop on the day called Black Friday. I love the fast pass on that day. It is a rush to see how many stores I can get too and how much I can save. Last year I was vacationing in Tennessee and I did not get to do as much shopping as I would have if I were home. This year I intend to make up for lost time. I also call my Aunt and see what stores she is going to and she will pick up things for me too. This helps me save a little time. There are also stores that will price match witch will help me save even more time. I love shopping and I love the hussle and busle of Christmas. I made a killing last year on movies. This year I am looking for a new television. I wish everyone happy shopping.

Here's a shopper who takes it seriously! Sounds like quite the adventure, and a great bargain too! Thanks for commenting.

Actually, yes I have. I found some fabulous buys at the grocery store the other day with marked down items from back to school and spring and summer and bought some stuff. I got new tee shirts for $1.75 each.I couldn't resist. I also found some flip flops for my daughter for about $1.00 a pair with a matching bag for the same price so I picked them up too. I about always buy stocking stuffers at the Dollar Tree and I buy them as I find them so they are started too.

I haven't actually started yet but I've planned out my presents, and have begun saving the money to buy them. This way, when the christmas insanity is full blown and going to stores is pure unadulterated he11, I will have taken care of it all already.

Sounds like you are off to a good start Zima. I may have to start incorporating your plan as part of my plan!

I haven't done much purchasing, but have eyeballed the sales looking for that great bargain. Whenever I see something that catches my eye and doesn't cost an arm and a leg, I will pick it up. Great way to save a buck or three.

I know my timing is a little strange for this discussion, but what the heck. Maybe I can make a ew cents to shop for next Christmas!!! I tend to do a lot of catalogue shopping, and get everything done in one fell swoop. That way I don't have to bother with the Christmas rush.
