    I start to buy gifts for Chanukkah and Christmas either at the end of September or early October. 😀  Gotta get the good deals around these holidays! lol 😀  

     

    I don’t really have a lot of people to buy for.  We usually buy small gifts for family once every other year.  The other years we only buy for us.  To space out the money! lol  Hope that makes sense.

     

    When we buy for us.  It is usually big purchases last year we upgraded our whole kitchen to our dream kitchen.  This year is a wedding honeymoon gift/ Christmukkah gift = couch. 😀

     

    Exciting i tell you!!

    Usually I start around Thanksgiving.  But, this year, I’m trying something different and I started about 3 weeks ago.  My goal is to be done by Halloween.  With the exception of a few gifts that need DH’s input – I think I’ll be right on schedule.  I’m SO excited!

    I try and buy a few here and there about 3 months before so the cost isn’t as big all at once.

    I buy something when I see it and its a good deal. I am about 50% of the way done already and ideas for most everyone else.

    Black Friday. Unless I find something I HAVE to get someone before then. But then I have a really hard time waiting.

    I start buying in mid November, but tend to do a lot of it online the weekend after Thanksgiving.

    I start whenever I have an idea. If that’s June, great!

    I usually do most of my buying in Nov and Dec.  This year I bought some in September though.  If I find a great deal and it’s something that someone would love, I pick it up!

    I also start my dollar store gift bag/tag buying early, as soon as I start to see them.

    Every year I say I am going to start shopping early, and every year I start in November and end up going until iterally the last minute! 🙁
