I just bought my first gift.  For budgeting purposes, I'm trying to buy a bit each pay period.  Anyone else shopping for Christmas at this point?

Normally I am pretty good about this and have at least a few things picked up by now and a decent amount of money stashed away also, but not this year.  We've got one leaving for college that we have been concentrating on.  I did look at the large gift for the little ones last week, but decided to wait a bit longer on it.  I will start pretty soon, but i need to come up with a game plan.

This is way too early for me! I wouldn't know what to get the kids yet. I let the grandparents buy what they want so I need to know what it will be. My mother already has a child computer for DS1 so I know that is off the list.

I tend to buy used gifts so it would make sense to look. 2 years ago, I had my heart set on an Alphie for DS1's birthday and I got one still in box for less than half price. Some child had gotten 2 for xmas...and the stores were sold out :) That is how I got the idea to do it all the time.

Bought my first two gifts today, I would say my mom is now done, but she expects a custom mug every year with pictures of the kids, so I always wait til December to order that.

No I can't stand to even think about Christmas until Nov.--esp. since we just had my BD & DS' BD.  I only buy presents for my 2 kids, mother & aunt and I don't really go overboard.

I can definitely relate that's why I am using a referral program to generate some extra funds for Christmas
