    I got a good head start at the begining of the summer when Toys R Us and ?Amazon?(can't remember now) were splitting up and they had those AWESOME toy sales with free ship.I also got some stuff before that when The Body Shop and Bath and Body Works had all their gifts sets at about 90% off.I was able to get some of thier carnberry oil warmer sets for less then $5 (usualy go for $30 and up)and everyone in my family LOVES the cranberry scent and it's only available @ christmas so they always want more as gifts. I am actualy VERY close to being done

    If I see something on sale, I'll buy it. I do that all year long. I am far from done though. I hide stuff and have a hard time remembering where I put everything.

    I started right after last Christmas. I shop sales and clearance all year long and just stick everything in my "gift" closet. Like Liz, I racked up on gifts during the TRU/Amazon split (I miss those days!). All the kids in my family are 6 and under, so picking up things they would like isn't too tough.

    I am pretty much done except for a couple of things I still need for my son. I even bought gifts for my family to give to my kids. They know I get much better deals than they would, so I do the buying and they just give me the money. Man, I love to shop!

    love shopping here main reason I already did all mine hehe. I waited till the last minute last year and I was almost 7 months pregnant with our son it was hard to get around in all the crowds so this year I decided to shop earlier to make things easier and have more time this year to spend with family and decorate the house for our Christmas party

    I can't stand shopping at "christmas time" the stores are over crowded(usualy with sick germ spreading people lol) the stores don't have as good a selection and let's not mention parking is a nightmare. I used to work retail and this that time o year people do not act like people to one another.I rather stay away from the crowds and use that time of year to decorate the house or do some holiday baking or just spend it with the family to.

    We started looking at things a few weeks ago but haven't actually bought anything yet. Usually a about a week before Christmas is when we go purchase everything.
