Have you started your Christmas shopping yet?

It's November now and it's time to get serious about making your lists and start shopping! I have most of the gifts for kids bought since I hit up a 75% off on toys earlier this summer. Got to love buying gifts for the kids, they are always easy to please aren't they?

I'm working on gifts for the adults now which is much tougher than kids! Am I the only one that feels that way? I'm looking at briefcases because my dad started a new job a few months ago and is working on the business side of the oil industry now. He is also needing new ties as well to expand his wardrobe. Decisions, decisions! Some of my family have also started Amazon Wish Lists which really long as they keep them updated! It's awesome because you can add an item you want from any store on the web.

The best part is wrapping the gifts. I guess that is either a love or hate task. I have so much wrapping paper it's crazy. I'm addicted to half off bright colored foil solids and patterns. I purchased a plastic wrapping paper/bow container a couple years back and it made me scale down my wrapping paper collection to fit :-)

So, how are you doing with your shopping? What do you have left?


I will receive a GC from CSN Stores. The opinions and experiences are 100% mine.

I'm almost finished! We just have the 5 nieces and nephews left and Toy Story 3 for Tate. I am usually a procrastinator, but this year I know with a December baby, I'm not going to want to get out a lot.
It is actually the one thing I haven't put off in anticipation of the new arrival! My to-do list is still MILES long!! :o)

We only shop for the kids in our family plus my parents. The middle generation gave up doing gifts for each other several years ago. That being said, we have NOTHING done. WE ask and ask for lists and drives me nuts not to get them until December. We are the only ones that will either have to A drive 2 hours to drop our child off at grandparents or B hire someone we dont know to sit our kid in order to get it done. Shopping with her is almost impossible. I planned on doing like 1 or 2 gifts a week all through Oct and Nov and being done, but no lists yet. WE ALWAYS offered to sit our nieces and nephews so their parents could go shopping... so far, no offers in return..

I am almost done. With baby boy #4 due any day now I knew I had to get my booty in gear this year.
